Western University of Health Sciences’ Pet Health Center will hold a grand opening from noon to 2:30 p.m. Friday, January 29, 2016.

The public is invited to join WesternU faculty, staff and students, city officials and community leaders for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, tours and lunch reception in the Pet Health Center at 611 E. Second Street, Pomona, Calif. 91766.

The Pet Health Center, fully operated by WesternU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, is a compassionate and humanistic facility that welcomes dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, birds and reptiles. The center previously operated as a Banfield Pet Hospital as part of a 10-year affiliation agreement with Banfield.

The main focus of the Pet Health Center is preventive care to ensure a long, healthy life for pets. The center now offers acupuncture and anticipates offering laparoscopic procedures, a client lounge and an updated dental suite with digital dental X-rays in the future.

“There is going to be more one-on-one client and doctor time,” said Jennie Jennings, hospital manager for the Pet Health Center. “We are going to be more focused on client relations.”

The Pet Health Center is dedicated to nurturing the human-animal bond for a lifetime. The mission of the center is to provide outstanding customer service, cost-effective solutions and unprecedented medical standards while never losing sight of the patient’s and client’s changing needs. The facility is open to the public and provides general veterinary services in addition to specialty surgeries and services. Faculty from the College of Veterinary Medicine oversees clinic operations and provides a hands-on approach to veterinary students.
