They were incredibly compassionate and highly skilled as they sedated our sweet Cooter for his nail trimming and ear cleaning. They worked as a highly efficient team which made the process easy on Cooter - and it took less than an hour! Now Coot feels and looks like a newly coiffed man! I am blown away by the professionalism demonstrated by the entire team at Westfield Veterinary Hospital! Thank you for everything you do!Jonnie W.Jonnie W. ★★★★★ Our daughter recently became a snake owner and we wanted to get a vet established for any future care of the newest member of our family. I searched with google and found Westfield Veterinary Hospital to be one of few to offer an exotic pet vet. We drove 1.5 hours for this particular vet. Well worth the drive! They did not disappoint. I called ahead to set up an appointment. There were openings within a reasonable amount of time which I was extremely happy about. I was concerned that they might be overran and booked weeks out. That was not the case. They had next day and same week openings available. They were happy to take on a new patient. The location of the office was easy to find. The office is clean and has a very roomy open space. Plenty of comfortable seating, 2 public bathrooms easy to access. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They greeted us with a smile. We didn’t wait long in the office before being called back to a room. The assistant was great with communication and asking questions. The vet came in shortly after. She handled our sweet guy with care and confidence. She gave him a thorough examination and discussed options. She offered suggestions to help us being new to owning a snake and gave us printed information to further help us. Upon leaving we were promptly assisted at the counter with paying our bill and handed a printed receipt. I feel they are reasonably priced given the specialty care needed of our exotic pet. We had a wonderful experience for our first visit. We are happy and confident that we found our new forever snake vet. I would recommend Westfield Veterinary Hospital to anyone with exotic pets. I added a photo of my daughter, her snake, and me waiting in our room for the vet. Elvis, our ball python, was pretty comfortable too🙂Dewayne S.Dewayne S. ★★★★★ Westfield Veterinary Hospital staff are so friendly and professional.

Over the last decade they've assisted our dog family - retrieving socks, yarn, and other unmentionables from intestines and bellies; run multiple Xrays and ultrasounds; treated tummy issues and Lyme's Disease; bad Doxie teeth; and have ultimately just loved on and taken care of our dogs like they were their own. They've been there for the highs of the puppy period, to the deep lows of aging and loss. Highly recommend this kind and caring practice.Tiffany S.Tiffany S. ★★★★★ Great staff!Deb P.Deb P. ★★★★★ We have had a very positive experience every time we have taken our dog into Westfield.

They are very friendly with us and loving and caring to our pet. We recommend them very highly!Birdie H.Birdie H. ★★★★★ Brought our puppy here to get established with a vet. I read the reviews before making an appointment and I have to say they really hold up! Every staff member we interacted with was super friendly and answered all of our questions in such a nice, polite manner. We didn’t even have to wait very long to be seen after checking in. So happy we chose to go here!Nicolette B.Nicolette B. ★★★★★ Dr. Dupuy and the staff at Westfield have taken great care of my cats and dogs over the last few years. They are always very nice, respectful, and understanding of any concerns you may have about your pets. Recently we unfortunately had to say goodbye to one of our dogs. The staff at Westfield understands that pets are like family and exceeded our already high expectations for their end of life care. They let us have as much time as we wanted with our dog before and after the euthanasia, sent us a card in the mail signed by all of the staff which included nose and paw prints, as well as a clay paw print mold when we went to pick up her ashes. Losing a pet is hard but Westfield shows that they love each and every pet that comes through their doors as their own and I couldn't ask for better care!Alexis M.Alexis M. ★★★★★ This is not our normal vet, but I had to bring my dog in to get an ultrasound done on her. The ladies up front were so nice and sweet and answered all my questions. It was nice to see a vet office actually be available, answering phone calls, and get you in and out. I'll recommend this vet to anyone.amanda S.amanda S. ★★★★★ I won't take my pets anywhere else !!!!emily F.emily F. ★★★★★ Dr. Safris and staff are very knowledgeable and have the utmost compassion for their furry patients. My Rudy isn't the easiest to deal with due to his anxiety, so I really appreciate that they work with him as well as they do when we visit. I was referred to Westfield about seven years ago by several friends and I am glad I made that call.brenda sbrenda s ★★★★★ Love Westfield! They've always taken great care of our furbabies and I couldn't imagine ourselves taking them anywhere else!Andrea K.Andrea K. ★★★★★ My first appointment was filled with so much information. I got what I needed and probably stayed too long due to all my questions but they were willing to answer every one. I’m very happy to have brought my new puppy here and will continue to use them.Update over 2 years later: I still 100% recommend them. I still to this day feel like this is the safest and best care for my dog. The receptionists are friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. The nurses/assistants are loving of your animals and make both your animal and you feel safe. And the vets are all of the above. Will go here forever with all of my animal needs.Jacob A.Jacob A. ★★★★★ Very curious people and they know what their doing.Kim K.Kim K. ★★★★★ Very friendly and helpful yet very knowledgeable staff!David Armstrong (.David Armstrong (. ★★★★★ We are blessed to have such amazing care for our 2 pups. As new pet parent's, we had a lot of questions and the entire staff put us at ease! We appreciate the organization of the website, the appointment and vaccination reminders and the "optional" vs "recommended" treatment plan that helped us to better afford having 2 pups neutered at the same time. We couldn't imagine navigating the future without the incredible team at Westfield Veterinary Hospital.Brandi P.Brandi P. ★★★★★ Best first experience.Amanda B.Amanda B. ★★★★★ Friendly staff, very welcoming, informative veterinarians!Olivia D.Olivia D. ★★★★★ They attended to my dogs problem immediately and kept us informed of all they did and what they would like to do.

One of our dogs has had a chronic ear infection that we cannot get to the bottom of and they had some suggestions that Iowa State had not even brought up to us! Will be going back for sure!Matt L.Matt L. ★★★★★ Westfield Veterinarians and employees have been compassionate and caring for our pets and now our adult children's pets as well.Cheryl TCheryl T ★★★★★ Such an incredible group of people that really seem to care. They take time to talk through treatment and present options. We have been taking our dog here for years and it’s the staff and Drs that make it great.Ali S.Ali S. ★★★★★ I brought my dog here kind of on an emergency basis. Our normal vet is closed one day a week and of course, something was wrong with my dog on that day. I called for an appointment and they offered a drop-off at any time or a scheduled appointment time where I could go in with him. I chose the time where I could go in since it was a new place. They got us in right at our time, got my dog back ASAP and came back within a few minutes with a diagnosis. We were able to take care of it that day. My dog is usually not great with strangers, but I think he knew they were helping him. We will definitely be back!Lauren P.Lauren P. ★★★★★ Great doctors, great staff, conveniently located.Todd F.Todd F. ★★★★★ Raven received excellent care and looks forward to future trips to Westfield. She and we all look forward to her future health care at Westfield. We put our trust with you! Thanks, Jamie & Betty SimpsonJamie S.Jamie S. ★★★★★ Each experience I’ve had at Westfield has been excellent! The staff has been there each time my family has brought an animal home, when an animal has passed and every moment in between. Each vet, tech and receptionist care for the animals like they are their own. I couldn’t recommend this vet enough!Brittany C.Brittany C. ★★★★★ Cannot say enough good things about the care my dog received at Westfield. She had recently been spayed at another veterinary hospital, and our dog unfortunately had a wound complication. Dr. Paulin spent tons of time communicating to us about next steps, things to look out for, etc. She was very kind and compassionate towards our dog, and even more importantly, she was very thorough. I left knowing that my dog had been well taken care of, and we are so grateful for the care our dog received. This was the experience I had been hoping for from the original vet! I would highly recommend anyone with a pet to take them to Westfield and to work with Dr. Paulin in particular! Thank you Westfield!!Patrick A.Patrick A. ★★★★★ This veterinary clinic is top notch. I have a 6 year old Frenchie and a 21 year old cat, and when I first moved to DSM I was nervous. The number of vets locally that were unfamiliar with French bulldogs as a breed was really frightening, when I came across Westfeild I read the reviews and booked an appointment. This team has gone above and beyond in helping care for all of my animals, but especially for my geriatric cat, whom requires a lot of visits for various reasons. Hades is 21. Which in itself is amazing! He has been struggling with hyperthyroidism for years, and recently was diagnosed with cancer around the liver. This team has shown so much compassion as we have had to make some difficult decisions for his care, and that has meant the world to us. Hades is still hanging in there, and the staff at Westfeild have made this all so much easier for us. I will be eternally grateful for them, and I can not recommend them enough for all of those who have fur babies they love as much as we love ours.Tausha C.Tausha C. ★★★★★ They are very nice vet and the people that works with them are very nice. They are good at answer all our questions. We will Always come back.Ron ARon A ★★★★★ This place is great. Very friendly. Very professional. Great health care for your 4-legged friends.Dan D.Dan D. ★★★★★ I would recommend Westfield Vet for all of your pet's needs. My interactions with Dr. Safris and Dr. Paulin have been great - they are honest and provide you with the best information/guidance a pet owner could ask for. Don't compromise cost over trust - they have earned my trust and recommend them with 100% confidence.Travis K.Travis K. ★★★★★ I cannot say enough good things about Westfield Veterinary Hospital. I have been going there since 2016 and every experience has been positive. The entire staff is knowledgeable, professional, personable and friendly! They have always been able to get my babies in when needed for appointments or last minute issues. Definitely the best care for my dogs and cats that I could ever ask for. Even with this crazy year+ of Covid they have gone out of their way to make sure our babies are taken care of. Lots of love for Westfield Veterinary Hospital!Amanda W.Amanda W. ★★★★★ Amazing team! We’ve taken our pup there for 2 years and never disappointed!Kait M.Kait M. ★★★★★ My dog had hurt her leg pretty bad. Our regular vet couldn't get her in for 2 weeks. We came here and they were so wonderful. Chloe is much better now!!!Laura B.Laura B. ★★★★☆ Expensive but great treatment.Matt L.Matt L. ★★★★☆ Always respond to my questions with respect and never make me feel dumb for asking them even when they can kinda be dumb questions to ask. They care for my animals in a way I know they are safe when they do behind the door to get treated. My cat who won't let just anyone carry him, let's them. They treated him quickly and made it easy to understand what to expect with his care.Q HQ H ★★★★☆ Dr. Safris is the best - knowledgeable, personable, and competent!Mich N.Mich N.js_loader
