About Us

Our Story


Our hospital was founded in 1958 by one of the first female graduates of the Ohio State Veterinary School.  Growing from a small, one exam room veterinary office, we are now a busy six doctor hospital that specializes in wellness and preventative care.

Your Community is Our Community

This community is our home, so we are proud to support organizations like the Westlake Animal Control, Westlake Police K-9 unit, Bay Community Theater, student organizations and sports teams in Bay Village and Westlake.

We also partner with numerous non-profit rescue and foster organizations in and around our community to help all of our pets find their Fur-ever homes.

We understand that your pet holds a valued place in your life and your heart so we have made it our goal to respect and honor that special bond by providing the best possible care for your pet. As part of that goal we have chosen to be accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and have our hospital measured against the most rigorous published standards in the industry.
