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.

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 (which is the highest waterfall in Canada) and Mt. Arrowsmith which is the tallest mountain on southern Vancouver Island.
