Our experienced team has a shared passion for patient care and client service.

We believe this team approach, along with respect, integrity and commitment to self-improvement, result in excellent care and service for pets and their families.

As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited facility, Westgate Pet & Bird Hospital regularly undergoes evaluations to ensure that we meet or exceed AAHA's standards of care.

These standards cover nearly every aspect of our hospital, including surgery, exam facilities, patient care, cleanliness, client service, emergency services, diagnostic imaging, and anesthesiology. Only 15% of animal hospitals in the United States and Canada are accredited by AAHA, which is recognized worldwide as the benchmark for quality care in veterinary medicine.

"Dr. Lusk has been our vet for more than 20 years and 3 dogs. His experience and kindness keep us coming back even though it is 30 min drive from our house. He has performed 2 surgeries to remove cancer from 2 of our dogs, both survived and it is in no small part due to the skill of Dr. Lusk. Everyone at the clinic has always been friendly to us and especially our dogs, they truly understand that our pets are our family."
