Dr. Rolfe

Practice Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. Jay Rolfe

Dr. Jay Rolfe has adored animals his whole life—he always knew that working hands-on with the earth’s creatures would suit him perfectly. Getting to serve the pets and animal parents of Vancouver Island is a dream come true! Dr. Rolfe is the proud owner and Chief Veterinarian here at Thetis Heights Veterinary Clinic.

Dr. Rolfe graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986, where he took a special interest in exotic animals. Next, he practiced in Prince George for a year before deciding he preferred the climate of Vancouver Island. Dr. Rolfe worked in emergency veterinary medicine for a few years in Victoria before making the shift to day work from night shifts—that’s when he decided to branch out on his own.

Dr. Rolfe set up The Avian Clinic and purchased the Victoria Veterinary Clinic in 1990. Soon after in 2003, Glanford Animal Hospital joined the hospital group, followed by Thetis Heights Veterinary Clinic. In 2013, after purchasing and developing a new piece of real estate, The Victoria Veterinary Clinic and Glanford Animal Hospital merged. Recently, the hospital merged with Thetis Heights Veterinary Clinic in order to best serve the pet parents and animal companions of the area. Dr. Rolfe and his team couldn’t be happier to help! 

At home, Dr. Rolfe has several pets: a pair of cats named Tuxedo Mask and Frangipangi, a turtle named Sam, and about 30 goldfish in the pond.
