Westside Veterinary Clinic was opened in 1985 by Mark and Dr.Lynn Shively.  Over the years we have increased our capability in serving the local area's veterinary needs with the addition of Dr.Linda Patton in 1991, Dr.Jill Brady in 2009, and Dr. Steve Jacobek in 2012. Dr. Lynn Shively retired in May, 2013.

The clinic's mission is to enrich the lives of pets and their people by providing quality, compassionate veterinary care throughout all of the pet's life stages. Good pet health requires the partnership of the pet owner and the veterinary professional.  We feel that caring for and educating the pet owner is essential in improving and maintaining petbigstock_Parrot_4223.jpg health. 

We provide full service veterinary care for dogs, cats, birds, and a variety of pocket pets.  Our services include soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, dentistry, high-quality medicine, and emergency care.  Our facility is well equipped with in-house CBC/Chemistry analyzer, radiology (including dental radiology), and ultrasound capability.  We also offer day and extended boarding; your dogs can be comfortable in our heated/air conditioned indoor-outdoor runs. 

We appreciate the opportunity to serve our clients and strive to be honest, courteous, and respectful in all interactions.  Furthermore, we aim to perform appointments and services in a timely manner, without compromising the level of care needed by the pets entrusted to us.  We offer this website to our clients and potential clients as a tool for understanding our clinic's services.

We are very proud of Dr. Brady's husband, Rik Combs running for Cole County Clerk!  Not only is he a veteran, but a great Daddy and terrific husband. We are glad we can call him part of the Westside family.
His experience running a military base and fresh ideas will serve the citizens of Cole County well.  Check out the link to his website to find out why we think he is the best candidate for the job and vote for Rik on August 5th!   -
