Why Join Us

Manzini Animal Hospital is located in Port Alberni, BC. Our practice was founded in 1983 by Dr. Hugo Lambrechts, who is native to South Africa. This is where he got the name “Manzini” from as it is the name of a large town a few hours outside of Johannesburg. Since opening we’ve provided exceptional personalized care to our patients. We’ve stayed true to our family-oriented values and we’ve formed tight bonds with our patients and clients. Our staff is made up of 4 licensed and experienced veterinarians who work with several technicians and assistants.

Port Alberni is one of the commercial hubs of Vancouver Island and is surrounded by the picturesque Beaufort Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean. Living in Port Alberni has all the perks of island life that you can enjoy. Our town has a little over 17,000 residents surrounded by lush green forests and blue waters. There are lots of trails to explore and as a bonus, we have sights like Della Falls (the highest waterfall in Canada) and Mt. Arrowsmith (the tallest mountain on southern Vancouver Island). We also enjoy a lower cost-of-living by having one of the most affordable housing and real estate on the Island. Residents here (including our team members) and tourists from all over the world take full advantage of the fishing, hiking, mountain biking and other recreational activities that our city has to offer.
