24 Hour Emergency and Critical Care

Emergency Services are open and fully staffed 24 hours a day, every day of the year.  Please do not hesitate to call us 360-694-3007 or come in if your pet is ill or injured.  Our Emergency and Critical Care team is lead by a Board Certified Emergency and Critical Care Specialist.
