Our Practice Philosophy

We believe in practicing high-quality medicine and spending time getting to know our clients and their special four-legged family members.

We believe every pet should have a THOROUGH hands-on physical exam at least once a a year and more often as they reach their “golden” years to detect problems early in order to secure the longest quality of life possible.

We also believe in customizing our vaccination schedules to ensure proper protection from disease without “over-vaccination” based on your pet’s circumstances and risk factors.

We believe it is our professional, moral, and ethical responsibility to offer all clients the best pet health care available and then follow their requests for services based on their wishes and what they can afford.

Our History

Westside Veterinary Clinic was established in 1979 by Drs. Bert and Sally Coco. The clinic building, conveniently located on Hwy 190, was once an old army barracks used by the military at Fort Polk during World War II. After extensive renovations, Westside Veterinary Clinic opened its doors in June of 1979. Since opening, the Drs. Coco have expanded by adding a large indoor kennel facility and worked to build a caring and compassionate staff.
