From my very first visit, Westport Animal Hospital has given attentive care to my 6 week old kitten, Joshua; Dr. Sam Selva and technical staff provided personal, immediate service and gentle care. Dr. Selva is very knowledgable and doesn’t rush his patients. I was worried about Joshua’s digestive issues as he had been recently weaned from a bottle (he was an orphaned kitten, found in someone’s backyard with only his brother). My concerns were answered with a comprehensive veterinary exam and advice for home care. I was given personal contact numbers and was called regularly to check on my kitten’s progress. Since then we have returned for nail cutting and a Rabies shot; he was weighed each time to check on his development and also checked for ear mites (he had been scratching his ears.) We will be returning for his distemper shot and neutering; the office will call when they’re due.
Very happy with Dr. Selva and his staff!
I had stumbled onto this place with a certificate I had from friends of animals to get my puppy Charlie neutered. I had called and set up an appointment, the woman on the phone was so nice. She explained everything to me more than once since I was so nervous for my puppy thinking he would be in pain. I walked in about a week later to have both the secretary and the doctor (who is just the sweetest man ever) meet me at the door ready. I fell in love with this place, I got such a great vibe from everyone working there that I knew I could count on them taking care of my little boy. I picked him up hours later he was all drugged up and slept the entire night through. They next day he was up and jumping around ready to play. These people treat you like family your animals are there animals. The vet gave me his personal cell number, they called and were constantly checking up on him. What an extraordinary service for both me and my pup. I immediately changed vets after this experience.
Two months later my pup got into one of those poison any traps, I called and was freaking out thinking something bad was about to happen. The doctor was just about to into surgery with another animal when he picked up the phone just to give me advice. Turns out it was nothing serious. The next day the doctor called again to just make sure Charlie was okay. This place is amazing! I feel so comfortable and safe that I have stumbled upon an establishment that is professional, caring and extraordinarily attentive to their patience.
I have been taking my cats to Dr Frank since I moved to CT 16 years ago. When my new kittens got sick, he opened the office on Sunday to treat them. He and his assistants are thorough and caring. The pets are his concern, even making calls to re home a problem cat! This is a small practice, gives discounts for multiple pets and really cares about their patients. Do not expect fancy digs, the skill is the thing, and this vet has what is important.
I can't sing enough praise about this practice! After 20 years of being exposed to the "commercial" aspect of vet care, and the almighty dollar being the higher value over ones pet, I elected to begin my search for a new vet! Low and behold, Dr. Frank and crew.....My daughter found this practice after my fiance adopted Bandit from Petco's puppy event - not only did they treat the him with utmost love and excellent medical practice, but when Bandit passed along a terrible case of kennel cough and worms to our other rescue Stella, they went above and beyond to care for her. How often do you walk in somewhere and it is like a rehash of "Cheers", where everyone knows your name?!!! When the Dr. gave me his cell phone number and asked me to keep him posted on Stella's condition over the weekend, it took me five minutes to pick my chin up off the floor - I hate to say it, but name a vet that does that in this day and age - YOU CAN"T!!!! This is a practice that puts your pets FIRST! If you are looking for a practice that cares about your pet, not your pocketbook - you must try them! The quality of care, love, devotion, dedication, care to detail, and genuine kindness will leave you asking why didn't I come here earlier!
What can we say...we are blessed to know Dr. Frank...he has taken care of KELLY, our sheltie who he operated on today...and at 14 it was a risk...but he just called nd said she made it....and he has taken care of Lily and Hannah who are other dogs in our family...The love and kindness and great expertise shown by Dr. Frank and his staff is remarkable.....He is a wonderful surgeon...Always know your animals are in wonderful hands when you go to Westport Animal Hospital !!!!.....Marg M
We have been going to Dr. Frank for over one year and he is the Doctor Marcus Welby of vets. His operation is small and cozy and offers great one on one service. He is not like other vets with that HMO mentality as he remembers your pets and goes by instinct as well as charts. His staff is courteous and his assistant is extremely knowlegable.

This is a great, very small operation veterinarian. Everyone is friendly, they can do house calls if it's an emergency and their prices are VERY reasonable, which is a HUGE PLUS in Fairfield county: the land of zillion-dollar veterinarians.
We love this vet! We have been going here for years.
So long story short... my mom got me a dog for my 13th birthday, which we later find out was abused. Another vet was doing the first visit evalution and bc my dog would not back down from this agression test she told us she would not be worth it to keep (meaning save yourself the trouble and put her down now). Well that was unacceptable, esp to a 13 yr old, and so we found another place.... Westport Animal Hospital. And 11 years later our dog it perfectly fine and she loves Dr Frank!! When she was younger she blew out her knee and he fixed that and we have not had any problems since. Just recently she had a tumor and he did a great job removing it and caring for her while she was there. Both of our dogs go there and we love the work they do there. The staff is fantastic and really kind. Dr Frank runs a great practice, your pets will be in great hands.
