The expert veterinarians at Westminster Veterinary Group care for cats, dogs, and exotic pets with diagnostic checkups, surgical procedures, and diet planning designed to keep all animals healthy at all stages of life. The vet's staff includes a half-dozen doctors, many of whom are distinguished for their experience caring for exotic animals, including many species of birds, reptiles, small mammals, and some Ewoks. All in all, the group tends to more than 10,000 animals a year, performing exotic pet surgery with high-tech micro-instruments and treating injured wildlife free of charge in conjunction with the Orange County Wildlife Foundation.
More than just a healthcare facility for pets, Westminster Veterinary Group offers luxury boarding facilities for cats, dogs, snakes, and birds while their owners are away. Dogs scamper around an outdoor play area while cats people-watch through windows into the waiting room.
At Crown Valley Animal Care, the list of pet-saving services rivals that of any human hospital. In their tireless pursuit to keep pets healthy, dedicated veterinarians use modern technology on furry, fluffy, and rocky friends. Their laser surgery eschews traditional scalpels for highly precise cuts, while ultrasounds and digital radiology detect any potential inner problems. Professional groomers also comb through matted coats, restoring pooches to pristine condition. In addition to providing dentistry, wellness services, and an in-house laboratory for tests, the center’s staff furnishes warmer, fuzzier facilities as well.
Pet boarding suites provide ample room for dogs to lounge and play. Tiffany lamps, soft beds, and pedestals accommodate visiting cats—be they aristocats, blue-collar cats, or cats with any other color of collar.
The many branches of Pets R Us Veterinary Hospitals are each filled with seasoned groups of vets and vet technicians. At Chapman Veterinary Hospital, for example, Dr. Samuel Azab puts to use more than ten years of experience and a special interest in surgery, internal medicine, and avian treatment. At any of the locations, pets can be treated for a variety of health concerns ranging from flea infestations to endocrine diseases. The hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art medical devices, and some of them can conduct digital radiography, vaccinations, ultrasounds, and orthopedic surgery. Some facilities also provide boarding and grooming for non-medical concerns.
