We begin with a physical examination in an effort to detect early signs of disease. Your pet is examined carefully from head to tail. Some of the more common things we may find include dental disease, enlarged peripheral lymph nodes, heart murmurs / arrhythmias, abnormal lung sounds, tense painful abdomen with possible enlarged organs, painful joints reflecting potential arthritis, and skin masses / infections.
Prevention of disease and mitigation of degenerative problems may add many healthy and happy years to your pet’s life.
Our on-site laboratory facilities allow us to obtain lab test results quickly to facilitate our ability to diagnose your pet and select the right form of treatment.
Comprehensive diagnostic procedures enable us to recommend the most effective form of treatment to keep your pet healthy and happy.
Digital radiographs (x-rays) are performed on the premises using the latest equipment and safety precautions so that we can identify the cause of any problems quickly.
Westside Pet Clinic is fully equipped to perform most soft-tissue and orthopedic procedures.
Prior to each procedure, every patient receives a thorough physical examination and pre-operative blood tests to assess organ function and overall health and identify any anesthetic risks. We perform a variety of surgical procedures ranging from routine spays and neuters to advanced soft tissue surgery.
Your pet depends on your protection in many ways. The common things they need are shelter, food, water, exercise and love. However, diseases spread by other animals are an ever-present threat to the health of your pet.
We live in a high-risk area for diseases spread by other animals such as ticks and mosquitoes. Vaccines are an important protection for your dog.
We maintain a complete Pet Pharmacy to ensure that your pet has the proper medications he or she may need to maintain optimal health.
