About West End Veterinary Office
We have been certified as a cat friendly practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). They oversee all the guidelines on practicing the best medicine for our feline friends. We utilize Fear Free techniques with every animal we see. From the moment you walk in the door your pet will receive VIP treatment to help ensure the most stress-free visit possible. We will give your kitty a special blanket that will be theirs throughout the visit. This blanket has been pre-treated with a special natural cat pheromone which helps them to feel more relaxed. We will place your cat, bird, exotic or small mammal in private and quiet, pet-friendly areas if an exam room is not available right away. This way, other animals that may be coming in the door will not upset your pet. We will not examine or perform any tests until you are reunited in an exam room. During the exam process we may keep the lights low, use gentle voices and handling during the exam and offer treats and toys to help distract your pet as well.
We offer a wide range of veterinary services including state of the art surgery and diagnostics, specialized care for rats, chinchillas, mice, guinea pigs, ferrets, hedge hogs, snakes, amphibians, lizards and birds of all species. If you are not sure, call and ask! Our office is equipped for:
