West Boca Veterinary Center is a multi-doctor general practice located in Boca Raton, Florida. We have been providing the high-quality veterinary care since we opened our doors. Our doctors and staff are devoted to the well-being of our patients as well as the education of our clients. Our contemporary veterinary clinic offers in-house lab equipment, digital full body and digital dental x-ray, ultrasound, and a dedicated surgery suite. We believe in the safe and judicious use of vaccinations and our doctors develop a vaccine schedule for each pet based on their individual risk of contracting infectious diseases - not on a traditional yearly schedule.
