Mission Statement

At Country Grove, our goal is to educate our clients so they can be responsible, knowledgeable, and successful pet owners, enhancing the human-pet bond for families. We strive to provide progressive veterinary medicine to our community with compassionate, high quality pet care services, in a healing, comfortable environment.

Practice Philosophy

At Country Grove, we will always be an advocate for your pet and recommend the best treatment tailored to meet your pet’s needs. We will also be sensitive to those needs as we are aware each client and pet require personalized, individual care, attention and understanding. We encourage open communication, enabling you to be informed and comfortable with your pet’s condition and treatment options. During your consultation and wellness exam, we will also focus on preventative medicine and care needed to keep your pet happy and healthy for the years to come. Our team at Country Grove is knowledgeable and ready to serve you. We appreciate the trust our clients place in us!

At Country Grove, we honour the terms of the Canadian Veterinary Oath at all times in our practice:

“As a member of the veterinary medical profession, I solemnly swear that I will use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society.
I will strive to promote animal health and welfare, relieve animal suffering, protect the health of the public and environment, and advance comparative medical knowledge.
I will practise my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of veterinary medical ethics.
I will strive continuously to improve my professional knowledge and competence and to maintain the highest professional and ethical standards for myself and the profession.”


Dr. Gordon Carnes built the clinic in 1986, to meet his vision of a stand-alone veterinary clinic with a “homey, country atmosphere”. The building was designed to pay tribute to Aldergrove’s heritage while providing natural light to most rooms. This was essential for a natural, healing atmosphere where pets feel at ease.

After 30 years, Dr. Carnes’s paths crossed with Dr. Jessica Wolfe, who shared the same values in medicine, pet advocacy, and community. Her integrity and skills were strong and impressive enough for Dr. Carnes to know his patients were in good hands and could retire to spend more time with his wife Jean.

As the new owner of Country Grove Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Wolfe wanted to maintain the natural and comfortable elements around the

clinic, while also creating an innovative space for state-of-the-art medicine and care. With an in-house lab, digital radiology, dental and surgery suite, CGVC is an ideal atmosphere for ensuring optimal health and wellbeing.

Dr. Wolfe and the CGVC Team understand the importance that preventative health care plays in ensuring good, optimal health. Proper nutrition, daily exercise, and maintaining oral health are also important for a pet’s wellbeing. The Country Grove team enjoys building relationships with clients and their pets.  At CGVC the consultations are 30 minutes long.  This allows our clientele to openly ask all the questions they have about their pet’s health condition(s). Dr. Wolfe feels it is important for our clients to have all the knowledge, and be fully informed of their pet’s health, and in turn, be able to make the best health care choices for their family pet.
