Welcome to Westbrook Veterinary Hospital!

At the beginning of 2023 we changed our name from Lichtenberg Veterinary Hospital to Westbrook Veterinary Hospital. While our name may have changed, we are still the same hospital you know and love! Dr. Russo is still the owner of the hospital as well as our primary veterinarian, and our staff remains the same.

You may ask, If everything’s the same, then why change the name?

In 2018 Dr. Lichtenberg decided it was time to retire and asked Dr. Russo, who was already working here if she’d like to purchase the practice and she happily agreed! Dr. Russo has always tried to keep the continuity of care, and thus kept Dr. Lichtenberg’s name on the practice. While she has made changes over the years, she decided that it was finally time for her to put her name on the hospital as well! Westbrook is Dr. Russo’s middle name, dating back to her ancestors on her mother’s side. Interestingly, our practice sits just west of a small stream that runs along a neighboring street, so it seems a serendipitous name for us.

What They're Saying

I love Dr. Russo. She is so understanding & easy to talk to, which is especially helpful when you have sick pets. Have been going here for years & trust them with my furbaby care.


We brought our cats here when they were just 3 weeks old and have not looked back. Their love for animals was apparent from the start. The vet/staff is friendly, caring and knowledgeable. Even though we are moving further away, we would not think of bringing them anywhere else.


I have been taking my pets to Lichtenberg Vet for over 20 years and have always found the staff to be friendly and attentive and the veterinarians to be skilled, thorough, and very kind. The fees are reasonable. I wouldn't go anywhere else!


I love this vet Hospital, I not only bring my own 4 dog's but i work heavily in rescue and foster and ALL my many Foster's have been seen here and they have bern wonderful!! Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable, and treat my pet's and foster's as if they were thier own
