What is important to you, as a pet lover? Each of us at Westlake Animal Hospital have multiple pets. Westlake Animal Hospital's environment has been created by pet lovers for pet lovers. We believe in kind, gentle care for your pets and in providing answers for you as their caregivers. If you are looking for excellent medical care for your furry friends, look no further than Westlake Animal Hospital. We at Westlake Animal Hospital believe that the patients, the clients, the staff, and the doctors form a community. We strive to provide the best health care possible for your pet through state-of-the art knowledge, equipment, and products delivered with compassion, understanding, and a gentle hand. We strive to provide thorough client education. We welcome your questions, value your opinions, and honor the commitment that you have to your pet. We hope that together we can offer your animal family a healthy, happy life!

We are proud to be an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and a Cat Friendly Practice.

Above all else, we at Westlake Animal Hospital pride ourselves on our open door policy. Our open door policy means that we feel there is no reason why a client should have to be separated from their pet at any time. Therefore we offer pet owners the option to stay and watch their pet’s surgery or dental procedure. Also, most outpatient treatments are done in the exam room while our clients are present. You are welcome to visit your pet while it is being hospitalized for surgery or in the case that it is ill (except for transmittable diseases such as Parvo virus, etc.) at any time. If you have any questions about the services we offer such as surgeries or wellness exams, please contact us.
