  • We have been taking our pets here for more than 20 years. The doctors are amazing and the entire staff is very caring and loving. It is nice seeing some of the same staff members who have cared for our pets for years.

  • I used to live fairly close to this veterinary hospital, but now that I've moved over an hour away in normal Seattle traffic I still take my cats here. They are awesome. They are affordable. And they are compassionate. This is by far the best veterinarian I have ever encountered.
