When we made the difficult and painful decision to declaw our 3.5 year old cat after exhausting all our other options, we were referred to West Shore Animal Clinic by another vet. From the moment we arrived for our initial appointment and consultation, the staff was courteous, professional, and kind. Everyone who works here clearly loves animals! Dr. Proulx was extraordinarily compassionate and respectful and did everything possible to answer our questions, explain the procedure and recovery process, and reassure us before, during, and after the procedure. We had such a positive experience with Dr. Proulx that we decided to switch to West Shore Animal Clinic for future care, even though it means traveling twenty-five minutes out of our way.
