Pets & service animals

Many of us at Vancouver Coastal Health love pets and recognize the important role they play in our health and wellbeing. But not everyone shares our love of animals, some people suffer from allergies, and animals don’t always fit well in our hospital’s busy hallways.

Are pets allowed in hospitals?

Pets may be allowed to visit, but it depends on the unit and the hospital. Check with the manager of the unit before bringing in your pet for a visit.

Guide dogs & therapeutic animals are welcome

Visits from certified service animals are always welcome.
We also encourage visits from therapeutic animals as long as the visit has been prearranged with the unit staff.
