Working Together for Your Pet’s Wellness: Information for Pet Owners

Navigating your pet's health care can feel daunting, but we strive to make it simple at Western Veterinary Center, Medical & Surgical Center (WVC). This page provides essential information for pet owners, including the importance of a healthy relationship with your vet, how referrals work, payment options, and what to expect from our services.

Building a Healthy Relationship with Your Vet

A key aspect of your pet's health is the relationship you cultivate with your veterinarian. Regular check-ups and preventive care are essential. When WVC is your primary veterinary care provider, routine wellness checks help us catch potential health issues early before they become significant problems. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Understanding the Referral Process

If your primary veterinarian is referring you to our hospital, we ask them to contact us directly and fill out our referral form to ensure a seamless transition for your pet's care.

If you are self-referred, we will communicate our findings and treatments to your primary veterinarian to ensure effective coordination of care. We act as an additional resource, creating a cohesive healthcare team for your animal and complementing the outstanding care you already receive.
