  • The best vet to go to! They take incredible care of my bunnies and always go above and beyond to let me know how they are doing. Friendly service, quick wait times and compassionate staff.

  • 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.

  • Great staff, great veterinarians. My grandpa's beloved puppy is treated great and the staff always ask about him. They recommend food and treats, even the types they do not carry. Love bringing Skippy in and feel like they really care.
