  • "We went to Western Trails in an emergency with my husband's pup!!!!! She was in shock, having seizure like behavior, and had a severe calcium deficiency. They gave her a calcium IV, and she pulled out of it!!!!! The vet came out and talked to us, and told us what we needed to do. AWESOME STAFF, they were very comforting during the situation we were dealing with. They took very good care of Jackie, and she's doing great, and fully recovered!!!!!"

    Jess C.
  • "Such a great veterinary hospital! Friendly staff and so caring. We are traveling on the road (from PA to CA) and our poor pitbull wasn't feeling well so we looked up nearby vets and found Western Trails. We took him in and found out he had a fever and lyme disease. They took him in right away ran some tests and gave him an IV to lower his fever. They thoroughly explained everything to us and kept him over night. Gave us some medicine for him and he is back to normal! Thank you to all the staff. You all are truly amazing!"
