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.
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.
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.
