VESH - About Us

Our Story

Specialized Treatment For Your Furry Family Members

As an emergency and specialty referral hospital, VESH does not offer routine veterinary care like annual wellness checkups, vaccinations, or flea and tick prevention. Our focus is on delivering advanced diagnostics and veterinary medicine for ailing pets in much the same way that medical specialists support seriously ill people.

Our experts collaborate with your primary care veterinarian to evaluate and manage treatment when your pet is suffering from injury, trauma, chronic issues, acute disease, or an unusual disorder that requires the in-depth knowledge of a trained specialist. Throughout your pet’s care at VESH, we keep your vet’s office up to date and supply copies of all medical records so they can be centrally maintained.

Above all, we are committed to treating both you and your pet with patience, respect, and kindness.
