My husband and I have been taking our dogs and multiple cats to Dr. King for more than 25 years and he is wonderful. Talented, knowledgeable, VERY caring, and affordable, too. And we really like his staff. We have had cats live to be 25 years old under his care, and that includes home care with sub-cu fluids, thyroid treatment, the works for older cats. We love "Dr. Phil"!! (oh, and the shopping center is no longer "run down". It has a Walmart grocery store and has been fixed up nicely.)

If you have a cat I would strongly suggest you take it to Paws, Whiskers, & Claws because they know EVERYTHING about cats. If you are on a budget, apply for a Care Credit Card & take your kitty to a vet that will accept that & one that cares enough to make other suggestions before euthanasia. Instead of looking further into my cat's illness to better treat her or admitting that he just DIDN'T KNOW, Dr. King suggested that since I was having money issues anyway I should just have her put down because all that could have been done had been done. He was wrong. He never even recommended an at home glucose kit - other "cat" vets recommended that during our first conversation. Instead of learning valuable things from my cat's vet of 12 years, I learned it after it was too late from vets that could only go by her records. But I will never use him ever again. Losing my cat was the worst thing that has happened to me.

My sister is a vet and I go to Dr. King. Does that tell you something? He is soft spoken, which helps with a frightened animal, patient, compassionate and he truly cares. He is indeed a great vet.

Dr. King is an exceptional veterinarian. He and his wonderful staff at Westside Veterinary Hospital, truly care about your pets. If there was ever a person that was in an occupation because of their love of that profession, it's Dr. King.

The shopping center where his clinic is located is a bit run-down, but the families who have used Dr. King to take care of their pets are incredibly loyal, and with good reason. He is acaringvet and a great diagnostician. Cannot recommend him highly enough.
