Have Questions more...


At the West End Vet Office, we realize our clients like to do a lot of their own research. We also realize that some of the information on the web is less than reliable. Therefore,we would like to offer the following links as “good places” to start – with the understanding that even here, not all of the information is accurate. We would also like to provide you with a link to the VIN (Veterinary Information Network) library. VIN is the world's first and largest online veterinary community, where new articles are added weekly by the experts at VIN to make sure that our readers have the most current veterinary information available.

In addition to the Pet Health Care Library, we have provided the following links to websites that provide some great information on a variety of topics related to veterinary medicine and pet health care. We will update this page frequently and would love to hear your ideas on links that you would like to see us add to this page to share with other pet owners. Feel free to send us your favorites and we may add them to our list!
