We are complying with the health department's recommendation of wearing a face covering when coming to your vehicle to receive a patient. Please help us continue to serve our patients by also wearing a face covering when you interact with us. The sooner we can stop the spread of this virus, the sooner we can get back to normalcy. Thank you for your understanding.

To continue being able to care for your pet we will continue curbside service for the foreseeable future. Please call the clinic (360-668-3005 or 425-481-1626) when you arrive. Unfortunately, due to the volume of phone calls we are receiving, we won’t always be able to answer right away. When prompted, please leave a voicemail. If you haven’t been helped within 5 minutes of calling, please come wave at us through the window. Please DO NOT enter the building. We currently do touch free check-out service where we call to receive payment over the phone. We prefer to avoid cash payments but will still take cash if needed.

For appointments a doctor will call you (from a private number) to a number you have provided us while you are here to go over the appointment. After check out we will bring your pet and any medications/food back out to your vehicle. Please, do not leave the parking lot unless otherwise advised.

Drop offs, both regular and surgical, are encouraged to print and fill out the appropriate forms found in the New and Current Patient section as fully and accurately as possible prior to drop-off for efficient hand-off and to minimize exposure in clinic. As always, we are available to answer your questions via telephone.

We are encouraging clients to utilize our email that is available through our website for any questions or medication refills that are needed.

We will continue operating at our normal business hours.

We are trying our best during this unprecedented time to keep up with the demands of our precious patients. That being said, patience is very valuable now more than ever. Please know that we are trying our best to meet the needs of you and your pet to the best of our ability.
