Patient Testimonials:

I took my Dachsy to her due to thirst and over-eating (more than normal). She barked constantly if not eating or drinking. Dr. Gaugh, knowing that Sadie is a baby was so kinda and gentle with both of us and very thorough. We did find out she has Cushings
Disease and got her on proper meds ASAP and I got my baby back to normal...Love this vet!

We recently had an emergency situation with our dog, Cleo and Dr Gaugh and her staff took excellent care of her while she was under their supervision. Dr Gaugh was professional and courtesy to us and we were comforted in knowing Cleo was in excellent hands while there.

I moved back into the city and was looking for a new vet. I chose Westbury and brought Ringo and Roxie in for their annuals. Emily met us and both dogs took a liking to her instantly. I had to bring Roxie back for a hotspot issue and even though she was in pain Emily handled her sensitively and kept Roxie to a minimum of discomfort. Emily does a great job of explaining the issues and options during each visit and always answers my many questions.

Dr. Garb is a gem! She’s been an amazing resource for my 18 year-old kitty, Razzle Dazzle Basil! Without overtreating him, she provided excellent emergency care which saved his life back in June 2012, and recommended simple treatment that has kept this vet-phobic old guy living well 16 months later. She loves cats and it shows. Dr. Garb has provided crucial guidance as I strive to provide comfort care and a good quality of life for my beloved geriatric pet. I don’t know how I would have navigated these tricky waters without her.
