Quality Care by Caring People!

Westgate Pet & Bird Hospital has always been committed to the highest quality health care for our patients and clients.

Family Owned and Locally Operated since 1986 – Westgate Pet & Bird Hospital has never operated as part of a large chain of stores with centralized management. Ownership and management has always been provided on site, by practicing veterinarians and caring team members.

A Tradition of Excellence and Experience – Westgate Pet & Bird Hospital has a strong reputation in the veterinary profession and has received numerous accolades. Our commitment to the highest standards of the veterinary profession is reflected by our certified membership, since 1987, with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). In addition, our entire team has a world of experience under its belt. Our veterinarians alone are proud to have a combined 55+ years of practicing high quality and diverse veterinary medicine.

A Collaborative Approach to Patient Care and Client Service – Our experienced team has a shared passion for patient care and client service. We believe this team approach, along with respect, integrity and commitment to self-improvement, result in excellent care and service for pets and their families.

Commitment to Outstanding Care for Traditional and Exotic Pets – At Westgate Pet & Bird we may see as many as 20 different species a week! This is a lot of variety that, in turn, demands a broader range of expertise than commonly seen in typical small animal practices. One advantage of such a diverse patient base is that we must utilize comparative medical practices and keep continually updating diagnostic and treatment concepts for all species.

Commitment to Value – Our entire team is committed to providing personal attention to the concerns of the pet owner while utilizing the latest advantages that technology has to offer for patient care to provide the best value. We do believe that effective care is most important, so we will recommend the best diagnostic and treatment plan for your pet to achieve optimum results. We can then discuss payment options to best meet your financial needs.
