Services

We’re a full-service veterinary hospital.

We are equipped with all of the latest technologies in veterinary medicine so that we can provide the best care available today. That said we will never push our clients into using expensive diagnostics and treatments just because they are available. We want to empower our clients to make informed decisions regarding their pet’s health.

  • Oral surgery to extract diseased teeth
  • Jaw fracture repair
  • Surgical removal of oral tumors

Preventative Care

 

We offer comprehensive regular physical examinations that are customized to your pet’s particular needs. Immunization schedules are based on the most current research and individual risk factors for disease. We routinely test for the most common internal parasites and stress the need for adequate prevention of heartworms and intestinal parasites in all pets. As pets age, screening for the most common chronic diseases becomes an important part of the periodic wellness examination and consultation.

Chronic Disease Management

 

Oftentimes, especially as pets grow older, our routine diagnostic tests reveal chronic conditions such as kidney disease, thyroid disease, and other metabolic disorders. WAH routinely monitors many common health conditions and helps owners find the right treatment and management for their pet.

Urgent Care

 

We offer same-day urgent care appointments as well as emergency services for pets with an immediate medical need.

Surgery and Anesthesia

 

The veterinarians at Westside offer routine procedures such as spay and neuter, as well as specialized procedures including orthopedic and emergency/trauma surgeries. We utilize the most modern anesthesia and analgesia protocols to assure safe and pain-free treatment of your pet. We routinely monitor pulse oximetry, end tidal CO2, blood pressure, temperature and respiratory rates in patients under general anesthesia.

Radiology and Diagnostics

 

We are pleased to offer digital radiography for chest, abdominal and bone evaluations. “We have the capability to electronically send all radiograph studies to a board-certified veterinary radiologist for immediate consultation. In-house blood and urine testing is available for urgent care and emergency patients. Abdominal ultrasound by board certified veterinary radiologists is available by appointment most days.
