Ponoka’s Central Veterinary Clinic is growing to something much bigger.

The clinic was established in Ponoka as a solo veterinary practice in 1988 by Dr. Bill Frischke and has since grown into a busy veterinary practice with a large support staff.

Their mission remains the same, to provide high quality, progressive veterinary care with an emphasis on customer service and satisfaction in a friendly, respectful, and fun working environment.

The clinic has full services for cats and dogs including wellness exams, spay/neuters, orthopedics, ophthalmic surgery, c- sections, dental cleaning and more.

For the equine enthusiast there is now a separate bay dedicated to horses only. Routine dental work, surgeries, pre-purchase exams and diagnostic imaging can be conducted in this special area.

The new facility also has a bay dedicated for cattle (beef and dairy) where necessary procedures can be done. Herd consultation and reproductive health management are also available.

Small ruminants (sheep, goats) can expect the same care to detail as the large animals.

There is an in-house laboratory service for blood work, urinalysis, fecal evaluations, cytology and culture.

Acupuncture is available for cats, dogs and horses.

The clinic offers services for a variety of animals.

Dairy services: This includes herd consultation services, reproductive health management, surgery and emergency care, laboratory services, bull breeding evaluations and export services.

Beef services: This includes reproductive health management, breeding evaluations, surgery, lab services, herd sand export services.
