Our Core Values


Our Culture Standard

Our Culture Standard

Our Culture Westway Animal Clinic is a safe space for all: a pet, pet owner, or team member. This means that compassion and respect are present every day. Every team member commits to this and expects the same in return. We commit to mentorship and empowerment and highly appreciate and value our team. We are not afraid of a challenge and thrive on providing exemplary primary (personalized care) veterinary and integrative medicine so that our patients receive the highest standard of care. We are the voice and an advocate for every pet because they are a part of the family.

Who We Are

Who We Are

Our team first and foremost considers the needs of your pet – to prevent illness and relieve disease, suffering, or disability while minimizing pain and fear. We practice veterinary medicine to the highest standards set forth by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO), Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA), and American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

The choice of treatments or animal care we provide at Westway Animal Clinic are not influenced by any considerations other than the needs of the patient, the welfare of the client, and the safety of the public. Ultimately, our goal is to empower our clients with knowledge and the ability to best take care of their pets. We commit to being sensitive and supportive of our clients’ decisions.

All our veterinarians follow CVO regulations, while our Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs) follow regulations as outlined by the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians (OAVT).


In an emergency, our veterinarians have an ethical responsibility to provide essential services for animals when necessary to save their life, subsequent to client agreement. Such emergency care may be limited to euthanasia to relieve suffering, or stabilization of the patient for transport to another facility.

If a veterinarian is not available to provide service, we will have information available for the client to assist them in obtaining emergency services in a timely and geographically appropriate manner. If a certain emergency requires expertise or equipment unavailable at Westway Animal Clinic, the client and patient will be advised immediately, and every effort will be made to refer them to a location where the required services/equipment are available.

Cosmetic Interventions

Westway Animal Clinic will not perform any surgical or other procedure for the purpose of altering an animal’s natural appearance for non-therapeutic reasons. This includes but is not limited to: ear cropping, tail docking, and declaws in cats. We consider these procedures to be unethical.

Genetic Defects

Westway Animal Clinic will not perform any surgical or other procedure for the purpose of concealing genetic defects in animals to be shown, raced, bred, or sold as breeding animals. We consider this unethical. Should the health or welfare of the individual patient require correction of such genetic defects, it will be recommended that the patient be rendered incapable of reproduction.
