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!

        LOVE this vet’s office! Newish to the area and decided to go here after reading reviews and considering the close distance to my home. My dog had his first visit and I could not have been happier with the experience today. I wasn’t able to go in because of COVID, which is perfectly fine, but I felt very comfortable and that my dog was in good hands. I was extremely impressed with ALL of the staff I encountered. Everyone was so professional, friendly and personable. The prices are also very fair. I paid over $100 more for a very similar visit at my previous vet’s office. Highly recommend!!
