3 Great Veterinary Clinics in WNY
Western New York is blessed to have many fine veterinary clinics. Many parts of the country do not have the luxury of so many wonderful choices. In this feature I will go over three of them and why they are potentially a great fit for you and your pets.
There are a number of factors when selecting a veterinary clinic, including price. Location could be one – are they close to home? Hours they keep – do they fit into your schedule or have emergency hours? Amenities – are they a one stop shop where you can board your pet or have them groomed? Do they have many social activities or help sponsor a particular rescue group? The staff – are the knowledgable and have a caring personality? Do they actually see your particular pet? Very few will look at more than cats and dogs, so if you have an exotic pet your choices are not as numerous.
Southtowns Animal Hospital | http://www.southtownsanimalhospital.com
154 Orchard Park Rd, West Seneca, NY 14224
Open M-F 7:30 AM-8 PM, Sa 8 AM-1PM, Su Closed
Additional Services: Boarding, Dog Park for Clients Only
The Hubbard family has been coming to Southtowns since we got Snoop in 2003. Yui and Seven followed shortly after. When Scooby joined us, she came to Southtowns as well.
The staff is always friendly and attentive. Scooby loves the dog park and she always has to check in at the lobby and say hi to the staff before playing.
They also have boarding should you need to go out of town.
Seneca Animal Hospital | http://senecaanimalhospitalny.com
7441 Seneca St
East Aurora, NY 14052
Open M-f 8 AM-6PM, Sa 8 AM-12 PM
Additional Services: Will see exotic pets
When I brought Fluffy home, I knew she would need a vet. Southtowns did not see reptiles and recommended Seneca Animal Hospital. I could not have asked for a better exotic veterinarian than Dr. Carl Tomaschke. He is knowledgable and free to share his knowledge. He is always amused by the fact that I transport my beardies in a cushy cat carrier and appreciative that I trim their toe nails. Compassionate, caring, I would see him every 6 months or so with Fluffy’s various issues, right up to the last day of her life. Two weeks later, I brought River to him and luckily, I no longer have to visit him as frequently. He has always been my go-to referral when someone had a herp problem that was beyond a pet store’s resources.

I really love their extended hours and I know that if something happened after my regular vet’s hours, I would call them first! They even have themed boarding rooms!! Marvel? Star Wars? Sabres? Oh heck, yeah!
