Ongoing preventative care through wellness checks, blood work and vaccinations is the best way to protect your pet’s health, and allow them to live a long and happy life. We also offer spay and neuter services, parasite control, and dental care for pets.

Microchipping is the modern way for pet owners to rest easy, knowing if their pet ever gets lost, they will find their way back home. An embedded microchip contains your up-to-date contact information and can be scanned at any vet clinic or shelter where your pet turns up!

Acupuncture has been safely used and developed over thousands of years to help animals overcome pain, joint disorders, anxiety and other ailments. Large and small animals can benefit from acupuncture treatments and find relief from allergies, reproductive and neurological issues, and more.

Our team of veterinary and technical professionals can provide pet surgery in one of our state-of-the-art surgical suites. Abdominal surgeries, bone setting, wound stitching and removing foreign objects are among the surgical services we can provide.

Pre-Surgical Instructions

Laser therapy is a safe and non-invasive form of pain relief we provide for pets. Whether your companion animal suffers from chronic pain or is recovering from a recent surgery or injury, laser therapy can help. Through a process called photobiomodulation, laser therapy accelerates healing and provides almost immediate pain relief without the use of pharmaceuticals.

Through the use of advanced imaging tools and lab work, our team can reach a conclusive diagnosis when something is wrong with your pet. We share your sense of urgency when your pet is sick, and our in-house lab system allows us to give you the results of your pet’s blood test during your appointment. We can use this lab work in conjunction with digital imaging to diagnose a multitude of conditions, ailments, and injuries. A rapid diagnosis helps us to develop a treatment plan best suited to your pet and family’s needs. This way your pet is well on the way to recovery in as short an amount of time as possible.

Saying goodbye to a pet is never easy. We provide compassionate euthanasia services for pets at our hospital.

Please do not hesitate to call our office with any questions you may have or to schedule your appointment today! We look forward to meeting you and your pet.

CWE Vet is the best vet I’ve ever been to, and Dr. Walker is the best doctor I’ve ever worked with. A lot of vets have made me feel dramatic for being so proactive and obsessive with my cats’ health, but Dr. Walker is very understanding and makes me feel like I’m doing them a favor by being so zealous. It allows me to make sure they are on optimal health and I truly have the utmost trust in Dr. Walker and the CWE Vet team. The kitties like your team, too!

So appreciative of the service I received from the CWE Vet Hospital team. I wasn’t able to be in the room when my puppy got her first shots, but I knew that she was in great hands. Great place and staff!
