Dr. Petersen in an incredible veterinarian that both Lucy and Murphy are fortunate to receive care from. He has a very calm demeanor that comforts both my dogs and instantly puts them at ease in one of their least favorite environments. He is very patient and willing to address all of my questions during visits. His empathetic and personable character, coupled with his thorough attention to detail are the reasons I continue to seek his care for my dogs. Any pet owner is lucky to have their pet receive care from Dr. Petersen.

This place is awesome. My former vet had retired and I was looking for a new place to go. This was in the neighborhood and when I had a sudden need to take my cat in, they were able to fit her in on very short notice. They listened to my concerns, were very gentle with my not exactly social cat and did their best to take care of her. They were also very reasonably priced. I’ve found my new family vet and will definitely recommend them to anyone I come in contact with.

Dr. Fred and staff at Westgate Animal Clinic are terrific animal healthcare providers! Dr. Fred took time explaining my pooch’s problem and the surgical procedure, and he consulted with others to determine the best surgical approach. He did a great job with the surgery and followed up next day. Staff at the clinic are passionate about caring for animals and their humans! I highly recommend this clinic.
