Community Education Resources and Conference Room

An exciting aspect of our new state-of-the-art veterinary facility is the prospect to provide more opportunities for community education. Along with a greater number of exam rooms, surgery suites, dental tables, and important physical safeguards for handling infectious diseases, West Park Animal Hospital offers a large conference room.

The conference room is a resource for education on issues important to the care of companion animals. We look forward to offering workshops on a variety of topics, including pet cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid practices. The new location for our practice is slightly south of the old facility. With more room for community education and outreach, we hope that our expertise and knowledge will help improve the health and well-being of cats and dogs and their caretakers.
