Welcome to West Lynn Vet Clinic! 

**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT**

 

To our valued clients:

 

We would like to thank our wonderful clients who have helped us grow so much over the years. We are running out of space and are at capacity for our daily hospitalized patients. Because we do not have separate kennel staff, we are no longer able to provide the extra care that boarding pets need and deserve. To ensure the highest standard of care for our patients and to be able to accommodate our sick and hospitalized patients, we will no longer offer boarding/kennel services at our clinic beginning January 1st, 2019.

 

If you already have an existing boarding reservation, we will still be able to accommodate your pet for that visit. There are many great boarding facilities and pet sitting companies in and around Austin that will give your pet the extra attention he/she deserves. We are not affiliated with any of these companies, so we are unable to give personal recommendations. However, we have compiled a list of the kennels that some of our clients already use so that you can research to find the best fit for you and your pet.

 

If you would like to leave your information with us for potential pet sitters, we would be happy to pass it along to experienced pet sitters that are interested in taking on new clients.

Thank you,
