Who We Are

A few words about us...

Quality, Compassionate Vet Care in Chesapeake and North Suffolk You Can Trust!

Anyone who has ever loved a pet understands how that love is returned to them one-hundred-fold. How the simple act of opening your home and welcoming a four legged friend is really about opening your heart and baring your soul. Pet parents recognize that the loyalty, affection and dedication our animal family members provide is well worth the sacrifices we make for them.

At Western Branch Veterinary Hospital, the love of pets drives us every day.

Why? Because like you, we are pet owners too. Each one of us knows the joys and sorrows, the ups and downs, and the pure enrichment that sharing your life with a companion animal can bring. That’s why treating your loved one as if he or she were our very own just comes naturally to us.

At Western Branch Veterinary, a Chesapeake and North Suffolk veterinarian, we operate our practice in a way that focuses on so much more than the clinical aspect of care, but also places a strong emphasis on building relationships. We believe that when we put our clients and their pets first, everything else will fall into place. That’s why you can always expect a welcome greeting, warm conversation, and a partnership that you can trust at Western Branch Veterinary.

We offer the highest quality veterinary care in the Chesapeake and North Suffolk communities, with comprehensive services and cutting edge treatment options that are designed to help each and every patient enjoy a long, happy and healthy life. Our team is committed to providing all the education, support and exceptional service you need to extend and improve the quality time you get to share with your four legged friend. We would love to be your “other family doctor.”

Whether you recently relocated to the Chesapeake or North Suffolk, VA area, just welcomed a new furry member to your family or you’re searching for a veterinary provider who will treat you and your companion with the personal care you both deserve, we encourage you to give us a try. Our doors are always open and our family always has room for a few more! We look forward to meeting you both!

        The negative is they still have the “pets only” policy that started with covid. Although the dr does call you on your phone while you’re in your vehicle in the parking lot I feel it’s time to let the pet owners back inside. There is nothing more valuable than seeing them examine and treat your pet face to face. I know they love this policy which minimizes the human interface but if it’s about your pet’s health then owners would definitely feel they have a 100% accurate status of their pets if they could see the vet’s actions and ask questions as they go through their processes. It’s time to open up the doors. Sorry for your inconvenience.

        I just took my 2yr old GS, Denali here and I am overjoyed at the kindness and care that he received. He’s a very anxious dog, and they went above and beyond caring for him. Everyone was very thorough and informative. Everyone was also VERY kind and overall I’d give staff and care 1000/10 ♥️ I am very thankful to have found a wonderful vet hospital to take my baby to.

        Dr Porter and his staff have been taking care of my dogs for 25 years. Your pets are family and you want the best for them.
        And his office staff become family as soon as you step thru the front door. 😍
