Westside Veterinary Clinic is Closing

After 43 years of serving the pet community of DeRidder, we have made the decision to close Westside Veterinary Clinic permanently. Friday, December 16, 2022 will be the last day that we will be open for business. It has been a pleasure to be a part of so many pet families' lives, yet we look forward to spending our retirement enjoying our family.

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.
