Dear Willow Creek Family,
Thank you for your patronage over the years! As of February 16, 2024, Willow Creek Veterinary Service has closed due to the lack of staff and no one willing/able to take over the large animal services. Instead, we will continue to serve our small and exotic patients at our Westside Family Pet Clinic in Norfolk.
We hope to see your small and exotic animals at our Westside location in Norfolk. Please click HERE to learn more.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding,
Dr. Pedersen and the Willow Creek Team
History of Willow Creek Veterinary Service
Willow Creek Veterinary Service, P. C. was a clinic in a long succession of clinics in Pierce. The clinic was constructed and finished in December 2002. The clinic was designed with both our large and small animal patients in mind. Over half of the 4000 square feet inside our building was dedicated to our small animal patients.
At this location, we offered 2 exam rooms and separate boarding/hospitalization facilities for our canine and feline patients. Our grooming facilities are adjacent to our boarding kennels and our surgery suite is adjacent to our large treatment area. We offered digital x-ray, PennHip certification, ultrasonography, laser therapy, a complete in-house laboratory for head-to-tail diagnostics, and gas anesthesia for our small animal patients.
In addition, Dr. Pedersen is trained in external fixators, so we offered orthopedic surgery for repairing knees and various fractures. For our large animal patients, we had our safe Haul-In Facility that was large enough to handle a pot load of cattle, inside facilities for large animal surgery, horse stocks, Swiss Float for horse teeth, ultrasound, facilities for calf IV setup, and a heavy-duty portable hydraulic cattle chute with scale.
At Willow Creek, our focus evolved from mainly large animals to the point where we worked hard to serve our companion animal patients as well as our agriculture patients equally. In addition to being a full-service clinic during business hours, we also offered emergency services.
In February of 2024, we made the very difficult decision to close our doors due to the lack of staff and no one willing/able to take over the large animal services. However, we will continue to serve our small and exotic patients at our Westside Family Pet Clinic in Norfolk and hope to see you there!
