Our Practice

Western Branch Veterinary Hospital got its humble beginnings 17 years ago in a modest rental home. Over the years, we’ve built up our practice to become the state of the art animal health care facility it is today, offering a full array of comprehensive services, cutting edge treatment options, modern equipment and all the space and amenities needed to provide our patients with exceptional care. More importantly, we focus on providing that care in a way that places the needs of our clients and patients first. It’s a level of personalized care that is difficult to find and it’s our pledge to you.

We are a full service small animal hospital serving the health care needs of dogs, cats and pocket pets in the Chesapeake area and beyond. We’ve designed our services to support the changing needs of our patients, whether it’s a well puppy or kitten check, advanced health screening for an adult pet or specialized care during the senior years. This customized approach ensures that your pet will always receive the precise care he or she needs, each and every time you visit.

While our services and facility are top of the line, the heart of our practice is the team that works within. We truly enjoy working together and we all share the same passion for improving the lives of animals, which is why we love what we do so much! Treating our patients with a gentle touch and extra TLC just comes natural to us because before any of our training, education and experience in veterinary medicine, each of us is a pet parent first. Plain and simple. Helping your loved one live a long, happy life is something we all take seriously at Western Branch.

Our client-patient focus is made especially evident in the way we operate our clinic on a day to day basis. Whenever possible we try to keep the owner and the pet together. In fact, we encourage you to stay with your pet while care is being delivered. We feel that this helps to alleviate much of the stress that is inherent in any trip to the veterinary office. We’ve also worked hard to make our clinic comfortable, kid-friendly and welcoming. Our ultimate goal is to make trips to the vet something that you and your pet actually look forward to.

Remaining with your pet also provides a better opportunity for us to get to know you, and allows the chance for you to ask questions and bring up any concerns that you have about your loved one. We view you as an important partner of your pet’s health care team, which is why we’ll always take the time to educate you, explain your options, answer your questions and help you make the best possible decisions for your family.

In addition to our passion for animal health care, we also feel strongly about giving back to the community in which we live and work. Western Branch Veterinary Hospital sponsors several teams each year in a charity golf tournament to benefit Children’s Hospital of the Kings Daughters. We have also sponsored youth soccer teams, riders in the M.S.150 Rides, Relay for Life in Suffolk and Chesapeake, local high school sports teams and bands, as well as hosted field trips for local summer camps.

Whether you’re a recent addition to the Chesapeake area, or you’ve been here for your whole life, if you haven’t given Western Branch Veterinary Hospital a try, the time is now. We treat all of our clients and patients as if they were part of our family, and in our family we’ve always got room for a few more. Give us a call today or stop by and visit any time. We’d love the opportunity to provide you and your cherished companion with the personalized care and exceptional service you both deserve.
