We Hear You!

Here at West Russell Animal Hospital, we honor and value what our clients have to say and truly take it to heart. We want you to know that we’ve heard you and that we are making some changes to show you how important your voice is to us.

We know you’ve been patient with us during these difficult times and we want to extend our gratitude to you by doing everything we can to reduce your wait time.

Our staff understands that life happens and sometimes it’s difficult to book an appointment ahead of time and we are here to help! However, in order for us to help your pets as quickly as possible along with clients who have existing appointments, we will be changing our Walk In policy to be much more time effective.

Starting Monday 5/17/21, we are asking our clients who are requesting a same day appointment to drop their pet(s) off for the day for evaluation. This allows our doctors to examine your pet in a timely fashion while still being able to see those clients on the schedule as efficiently as possible (while also allowing us to get some extra snuggles in!). In allowing us to take care of your pet for the day, it will not only give the doctor an appropriate amount of time to assess your pet’s condition, it will also mean that you no longer have to wait in an exam room for a lengthy amount of time due to other appointments being ahead of you.

Lastly, we have done our best to serve our community with all of our time, services and passion for animals and while we wish we could do that without some changes to our prices, that is not always the case. In our efforts to continue providing low cost services such as vaccines and spays/neuters, we will be raising the Walk In fee to $90.00. We hope that you know that we don’t do this lightly and thank you for your understanding in the reasoning for this increase.

We want to thank you for the continued trust that you’ve put into West Russell Animal Hospital and know that this is the best step that we can take in addressing the feedback we’ve received regarding the extended wait times due to the COVID pandemic.

We appreciate you and hope that you are as excited as we are to take these next steps together!

“I basically have a petting zoo at home. I have followed Dr. Benson for the past 10 years to take care of my kids (3 Great Danes). She is the absolute best! Compassionate and 100% thorough. We have cats too and the wife will only take them to her. GREAT hospital and Staff. All Doctors here are top-notch! I drive a good distance from Henderson, and I never regret it.”

“This animal hospital, in my opinion, is the best in all of Vegas Valley! If you are lucky enough to meet Dr. Benson you will find a vet whom you will most likely continue taking your baby too for the rest of their life. She is hard-working, dedicated, loyal, and way smart!!”

Debra O.

“Everyone here is friendly and accommodating. The prices are very reasonable, too. If you come in for shots they don’t charge for the office visit, just for the shots. I trust them completely with my pup!”

James M.

“We love this vet office! I have large dogs… (210 pound English mastiff) I moved out here from Colorado and was so afraid to find a vet that understood large animals and they were fantastic. My partners have senior dogs & they went to west Russell for a second opinion and now this is their vet for life as well. If you are looking for a staff from the front of the office to care for your fuzzy animals this is the place to go. We have been so impressed with them. They give great solutions and are not pushy on their services. We also recently had a tour for their office and their kennels are very large and warm for the pets. They are always looking out for the best interest for their pet.”

Aimee G.

“I have been bringing my pets to West Russell Animal Hospital for over 6 years. Everyone is so kind and helpful. Their prices are very reasonable and I’ve never had extra services or tests shoved down my throat. I highly recommend if you’re looking for honest and kind people to care for your animals!”
