A Treasure Valley veterinary business, WestVet, is expanding, opening a new 24-hour emergency room and animal specialty care center at 50th Street and Chinden Boulevard in Garden City.
With 32,000 square feet, the new building will nearly triple the size of WestVet’s former office on nearby North Sawyer Avenue. The new site will house an intensive-care unit for critically sick animals as well as five surgery suites. It will feature imaging services, including CT and MRI scans, and a suite equipped with electronic hoists for large dogs.
The design for the site, formerly home to Cars USA, includes a visitation area where owners can privately visit critically sick or injured pets.
WestVet will host an open house and ribbon cutting at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21.
