Patients Come First At Westwood Animal Hospital!

OUR MISSION is to put our patients first by providing outstanding, compassionate care and service through staff education, teamwork and by providing a personal touch in a congenial environment that exemplifies the appreciation of the special bond between pets and their families.

OUR CORE VALUES include empathy, compassion, integrity, communication, advanced technology, quality care, teamwork and education.

 OUR VISION is to achieve synergy using our core values to advance our mission.  Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts. This requires more than state of the art medical care – it requires care that addresses every aspect of a patient’s experience at Westwood Animal Hospital, including the pet’s physical comfort, as well as emotional needs. Additionally, we provide each pet’s family with options for the best way to support their pet’s wellness and therapeutic needs.

Thanks for visiting us on the web. We’re very proud of Westwood Animal Hospital and the level of care we provide for the furry family members who are entrusted to us. If you’re in the neighborhood, I invite you to call for an appointment to take a tour of our hospital.
