About Us – your Vets at Animal Hospital Southwest

We spend every day celebrating the bond between our “pet parents” and their pets.  After all, the relationship between people and pets is a special one and, as Anatole France once said: “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”    We enjoy seeing how the love between pet and parent enhances the lives of both. And this isn’t just wishful thinking; studies have proven that a relation with a pet has true health benefits.  WebMd says “A pet is certainly a great friend. After a difficult day, pet owners quite literally feel the love. In fact, for nearly 25 years, research has shown that living with pets provides certain health benefits. Pets help lower blood pressure and lessen anxiety. They boost our immunity. They can even help you get dates.” And while we’re not sure about getting dates, we do know that pets do keep us both happy and healthy.

An Animal Hospital Featuring the Latest in Diagnostic Procedures

In order to keep that relationship going, and healthy, it’s important to keep your pet in top form.  Here at Animal Hospital Southwest, we provide a full range of veterinary services using the best education, training, equipment and facilities available. We strive to care for your pet with love and attention to their well-being. We use the latest diagnostic procedures – such as laser surgery, otoscopy and digital radiography – to diagnose and treat your pet.

An Animal Hospital the Most Qualified and Caring Veterinary Professionals

Our doctors attend 50 hours of continuing education each year to ensure that they are informed of the newest and most up to date procedures.  Our doctors also pursue additional continuing education in shelter medicine, as we provide free wellness exams to Humane Society and Fort Worth Animal Control adoptions.  We regularly deal with challenging cases, even dedicating hospital resources to ownerless rehab cases from Fort Worth Animal Care and Control and homeless strays.
