    Veterinarian

    Dr. Vickers is a 2003 graduate of the School of Veterinary Medicine at Oklahoma State University and has practiced extensively in and around the Tulsa area.  He and his wife Ruth became fond of our state's beauty and culture as they passed through when they vacationed on the Gulf Coast with their two sons.  As the youngest son is about to complete his high school education, Dr. Vickers and Ruth decided to relocate to our area.  We are fortunate that Dr. Vickers has decided to continue his practice at Westwood Pet Care.


    Experienced, professional, competent, Dr. Vickers is just what every veterinary clinic needs, but his compassion and easygoing, agreeable good nature make him a perfect fit for Westwood with our emphasis on client service.
