Message about purchasing on-line:
Why should I purchase my medication from Westgate's on-line pharmacy versus a big, national on-line pharmacy?
Many veterinary products are not legally sold to large on-line pharmacies. These pharmacies get the medications through a third party. Drug manufacturers are trying to curb this practice by not guaranteeing medications that are not purchased from a veterinarian. For example, if you purchase heartworm pills from a national on-line pharmacy, and your pet gets heartworm disease, or an intestinal parasite infection, the drug company's guarantee of their product is null and void.
At Westgate Pet Clinic, we thank you for purchasing your pet's medication at our clinic, or through our on-line pharmacy. We try hard to keep our medications competitively priced, and we work with drug manufacturers to offer rebates and special offers for our clients.
Who runs our on-line pharmacy?
Our on-line pharmacy (myvetstoreonline effective July 15th) is run by Midwest Veterinary Supply located in Lakeville, MN. Midwest Veterinary Supply guarantees all of its medications are purchased directly from drug manufacturers. They price their products competitively and keep shipping costs low. You don't need to worry about product source or efficacy when purchasing through Midwest Veterinary Supply. It's the same medications we buy for our clinic.
If the product you purchased is unopened, and we keep it in stock at Westgate Pet Clinic, you can return the product for a full refund at the veterinary clinic.
If the product you purchased is not a product we stock at Westgate Pet Clinic, the product can be returned, but there is a restocking fee of $8.
If the product you purchased is opened or used, typically a refund cannot be applied. ********

Traditional obedience classes for dogs start around 5-6 month of age. Our Puppy Preschool Program welcomes dogs from 8 weeks of age, up to 16 weeks of age. During this time, we are taking advantage of what is called the "No-fear" or "prime socialization window". We can expose puppies to so many different things during this developmental stage, with the end goal being that they accept all different situations, noises, objects, scenarios, etc, as just another day in the life of a dog!
Each class begins with puppy play time (one of the most important aspects of this class) because the puppies have a chance to learn from one another. What is OK? What is not OK? "Is this an appropriate way to invite play?" Or "You bit too hard!" Puppies can teach other puppies things we as humans just simply cannot.
Our program emphasizes encouraging positive behavior and will teach owners the proper way to reward, ignore or re-direct the behaviors. A training book by nationally known trainer Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D. called The Puppy Primer, other reading material, homework assignments and graduation certificate are included.
Class size is limited to 8-10 puppies, this assures that everyone will receive the individual attention they and their pets deserve. The class is held on five consecutive Wednesdays at the Westgate Pet Clinic, from 7 to 8 o'clock p.m. Children ages 4 and older are encouraged to attend. Our clinic is excited to meet you and your new puppy, and be a part of the experience that is puppy-raising!
