Welcome to Southwest Veterinary Medical Center!
Located at the southernmost end of Corrales,the staff at Southwest Veterinary Medical Center is committed to your pet's health. Our hospital was founded in 2006 but Dr. Levenson has been in Albuquerque for more than 10 years. We started as and continue to be a family business - a locally owned and private hospital (no out-of-state or corporate owners). Since then our staff has excelled in the science of veterinary medicine with compassionate care for the North Valley, Rio Rancho, West Albuquerque and beyond.
The Southwest Veterinary Medical Center is a full-service small animal hospital whose mission is to provide the highest standard of veterinary care coupled with a gentle touch to all pets. We provide services for dogs and cats as well as most exotic animals such as birds, reptiles, ferrets and other small mammals (rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, sugar gliders, chinchillas, etc…). We also strive to provide owners with friendly, informative, and supportive services while maintaining a superior work environment for our employees.
Our hospital offers Corrales and the surrounding communities with emergency care during normal business hours as well as a full compliment of surgical, internal medical, dental, and radiographic veterinary care. We provide information and counseling on a whole range of topics like nutrition and weight control, pediatrics, geriatrics (including arthritis, nutrition and quality of life issues) and husbandry for all those exotic species.
We want to be your OTHER family doctor!
