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.
