What to expect
Upon arrival, your pet will be immediately triaged. After assessing the urgency and physical condition of your pet, he/she will then notify the doctor on staff.
Following a complete physical exam by one of our emergency doctors, treatment options will be provided. We go step by step to ensure your pet is treated like OUR pet as we provide the best health care plan and experience available.
Following your pet’s critical care event, we will provide you and your family veterinarian with the complete medical records so your veterinarian can provide appropriate follow-up care and treatment. This includes copies of all x-rays, ultrasounds, blood work and our doctors’ medical logs.
Our kitten, Boston had intestinal problems for a couple months. Our regular vet had tried a few things to treat more common potential causes and our guy got significantly worse on a Sunday. We found this place with a quick google search as the only vet around with Sunday walk-in hours. Dr. G. was determined to find the cause and he found it to be something super rare that he hadn’t seen before. He got together a treatment plan and he and his super sweet staff made sure to explain it thoroughly. Boston was showing improvements within a couple days.
The Westerville Vet Clinic has the best group of people for their employees. They all care about every animal that comes through the door. I have been taking my cats and dog here for over 13 years. They have also spayed and neutered several feral cats for me. I had to have my Chester, a Pekingese, put down a couple weeks ago. They were very caring and I could really tell they had enjoyed having him in day care for many years. These folks will always be my choice of vet care!
Super thankful this vets office was recommended to me. I took my dog Luna in today for a first time check up, and I was so impressed! The love you all gave my dog warmed my heart. Not only that, but I was never left just waiting in a room. I was kept up to date on what was happening, and truly felt valued. Your staff was attentive, thorough, and professional. safe to say we’ve found a regular veterinary clinic!
