From all of our staff members at West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center, we thank you for trusting us with the care of your pet. As a member of the West Hills family, we promise to provide loving, compassionate care to every pet through our professional care and extraordinary service.
Our staff is comprised of over 70 members who have all come to West Hills because of their love of animals. In addition to our staff of ten, highly skilled veterinarians, we proudly boast of having 17 Licensed Veterinary Technicians (LVT's), more than any other general practice on Long Island. LVT’s are specially trained for 2-4 years in the field of veterinary medicine, and then are required to take a certifying exam from the state of New York prior to receiving their license. Under the guidance of our veterinary staff, these licensed professionals provide a level of care for your loved ones second to none.
However, our team would not be complete without our paraprofessional staff that includes extraordinary technician attendants, veterinary assistants, customer care ambassadors, patient care advocates, and kennel attendants. By working as a team we have been able to provide comprehensive 24 hour care, 365 days a year. Our incredibly dedicated staff has kept our practice open and fully functioning throughout blizzards, hurricanes, super storms, power outages, etc. We can confidently say that there is not an animal hospital anywhere that has made a stronger commitment to the patients whose care is entrusted to them. The culture that has been established at West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center for more than 30 years is something we are all so very proud to be part of.
Clients of West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center never pay any additional after-hours emergency fees!
