WHAT TO EXPECT

When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. Dr. Zachary Westhoff has assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient.

        Call 712 546 6040 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

       Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam, and may include teeth and gum cleaning if needed. Every year of a dog's life is equal to seven years of a human's life. That means for every year your dog doesn't visit a vet, multiply that times seven and that's how many years your dog hasn't been to the vet!

        Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout their life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. In some circumstances, our veterinarians may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise to better care for your pet.
