We also have some features that make us unique:
West End AnimalHospital was established by Dr. Deborah Cottrell in 1986.
We treat a wide variety of animals, including dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, rodents, small marsupials, non-human primates, and a variety of other exotic animals as well.
Our Doctors have over 50 years combined experience.
Our state of the art facility includes two surgery suites, an emergency ward, treatment areas, boarding kennels with separate areas for cats and dogs (indoor or air-conditioned indoor/outdoor), an extensive in-house pharmacy, and a digital x-ray suite (one of few privately owned fully digital systems in central Florida).
Our cutting edge in-house laboratory allows us to obtain fast diagnostic results when your pet needs it the most, rather than the usual 24 to 48 hour wait associated with off-site labs.
We offer our clients cozy exam rooms with in-room checkout, cable TV, and free WiFi internet access.
We see after-hour emergencies, for our established clients,
enabling you to see a doctor that is familiar with your pet.
We ran a program called "Operation PitNip" that provided free spays and neuters for Pit Bulls for seven years. By the time we ended the program in April of 2012, we had spayed and neutered over 1750 pit-bulls for free .
We have raised and donated over $40,000 to animal rescue groups via our Poker For Pets charity program.
We are involved in bat rescue, rehabilitation, and education. Our bat house is home to approximately 1500 Mexican Free-Tail and Evening bats. The public is welcome to come any evening to watch their departure from the house.
