We are a companion animal clinic located in Gander. Our clinic was founded by Dr. Douglas Tweedie, and has been in operation for over 30 years now. Dr. Bernice Heffern joined Gander Veterinary Clinic in 1991 after graduating from Atlantic Veterinary College, U.P.E.I. Dr. Heffern took ownership of the clinic in 2008 and moved the practice to its current location on 26 Roe Avenue in 2009. Since then, the clinic has continued to grow with an expansion of services and products available to our clients.
Along with Dr. Heffern, we have Dr. Gouchie, Dr. Tuff and Dr. McIntosh as associate veterinarians.
Dr. Heffern and the staff of Gander Veterinary clinic proudly support the Gander and Area SPCA through discounted services and an annual monetary donation.
We also support an annual scholarship at Holy Cross School, Eastport, which is awarded to the student graduating with the highest average in Math and Science.
The medical staff at Gander Veterinary Clinic is committed to providing you and your pet a pleasant and comfortable experience. We are caring, professional, welcoming and have built a strong reputation among our clients over these years. Our team includes highly skilled professionals devoted to the care of your cherished pet.
