WESTHILLS_ABOUT

Our Facility

Dr. Sarah Malenchak started Westhills Equine Veterinary Services in 2011 as a mobile service. In the winter of 2016, Westhills built a home base office/hospital facility just west of Stony Plain, AB. Here we are able to offer hospitalization for 24/7 care of patients as well as facilities appropriate for everyday appointments.

We are equipped with several stalls and stocks as well as all of our diagnostic equipment in order to make patients and clients safe and secure in a climate controlled environment. We may ask that you bring your horse in to us at the clinic in cases where on farm facilities are not appropriate (such as in cold weather or facilities are not appropriate for the type of appointment or treatment required), 24/7 care or emergency situations.

We know that finding the right veterinarian for your family is a choice not to be taken lightly. That’s why we offer free consultations to walk you through your horses needs, the goals, and your budget.
