About Whole Pet Veterinary Center
OUR COMPANYWhole Pet Veterinary Center is a well equipped, privately owned small animal (dog/cat) clinic. Our focus is on compassionate pet and owner care with an emphasis on Fear Free pet handling, individualized medical plans, and partnership with pet owners.Whole Pet Vet Center has been part of the Westford community for many years. Previously known as Westford Animal Hospital, Dr. Vickrey purchased the practice in 2011 with the focus on transforming the way pets, and their owners, experience the vet relationship. We are blessed to be located in a desirable suburb of Boston, surrounded by specialty referral practices with access to every specialist you may need including Angell Memorial and Tufts.Whole Pet Vet is small—on purpose—so that we can maintain a closeness with our clients that benefits all. We believe that providing longer appointments and more time with the doctor allows us to listen to the owner’s needs so that we can take the time to explain and address the needs of the pet.Check us out at www.Wholevets.com
