Review from Drew, client since 2004: "I come to Northwest Animal Care because of the level of care my pets receive. My dogs are comfortable in the environment and I can bring them here for treatment and they love the boarding facility. They go crazy when they see your employees - they just love playing with the staff. I feel comfortable when I go on vacation because I know they are in great hands."

Products & Services

Laser Surgery

All the doctors at Northwest Animal Care Hospital perform laser surgery for the comfort of your pet. Using the laser for surgery allows your pet to recover more quickly with less bleeding, less pain and less inflammation.

Dental Care

We all know how important dental care is for humans but in many ways proper dental care is even more important to dogs and cats. Regular dental cleanings are a vital part of the overall wellness plan for your pets. When regular dentals are not provided, bacteria from the mouth can actually enter into the bloodstream and damage internal organs.

Rehabilitation Therapy

Northwest Animal Care remains at the forefront of new technologies and advanced treatment planning. We are one of the very few hospitals in Washington State with an underwater treadmill and doctors certified in hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy has become very popular as an effective (and fun) rehabilitative treatment plan for pets recovering from surgery or with chronic inflammatory conditions. We are also among the few practices to offer stem-cell therapy and blood platelet therapy

In House Diagnostics

Northwest Animal Care Hospital is fully equipped to run the necessary tests on site to provide our doctors with the information they need to form a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan FAST. Digital X-Rays, Dental X-Rays, bloodwork, laboratory tests and ultrasounds are all performed on site.

We travel from Lake Steven for our 4 dogs and it's Totally worth the drive. You can tell that everyone that works there loves what they do because they're caring, reliable, and very knowledgeable. They're not afraid to get down on the floor and visit with the pups. We've had some rough patches with closer vets. So it's nice to know that Northwest Animal Care is our place.

I took my cat here for the first time this week, and was very happy with the care she received. We were checked in by a friendly receptionist, and quickly checked into an exam room.

The vet staff were all super friendly, and they were able to quickly get my cat x-rayed and diagnosed. Dr. Johnson patiently explained several treatment options and let me choose the one I was comfortable with without pressuring me in any way. They were also very upfront about the costs, and didn't charge me for the nail trim.

I've been taking my Dachshund her for a few years now, and I've really enjoyed my experiences with them. I took him in when he became lethargic and they kept me updated on every part of the process when we were trying to find out what was wrong. I really appreciate communication, especially when I'm clueless about medical terms and such, so it was nice having them to talk and hear what Howe thoughts were.

Customer Testimonials

The card of sympathy you sent me was so typical of the care you have always shown. Since the first time I walked into your hospital, I felt at home, I felt confident of your expertise, and I particularly felt the gentleness and thoughtfulness you so freely give. It has not mattered whether it was for my animals or for me; you have taken good care of us. I wish I could tell you how truly special you all are and how much your kindness has meant to me. To just come in for my hugs is something I especially treasure. I know I will see you again. When I am able to adopt another dog, I will bring him to you so that this one will know how much you care for both the two-footed and four-footed creatures! Thank you again for your thoughtfulness.

Testimonial from Barb and Lundy

We think the doctors and the staff are just the best at everything they do. The staff has tremendous respect and compassion for all our little four-legged friends. They treat us like family. We've had pets with very serious health issues. Most recently we began hydrotherapy and laser therapy for "Missy" and it changed her life. She had severe arthritis and was in a great deal of pain, but after therapy she was dancing around like a youngster. Everyone here is terrific.

Testimonial from Bobbi

We think the world of Dr. Johnson. Everyone at Northwest Animal Care has been so helpful and made us feel like friends. I really like the fact that the hospital is so open and I can visit my pets any time I want if they need to stay. Other hospitals don't want you in the back. They have a really clean, well-kept facility and we just love coming here.

NW Animal Care has been an awesome vet for more than 5 years. I switched to them when my dog needed knee surgery 5 years ago because they had the underwater treadmill. They've been with me through 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am happy with ALL the vets - which is a rarity. Usually you find one that clicks, but they then move on or aren't available -- that is simply not the case here. Each one is excellent and they coordinate care and the answers make sense if you seen a different provider. I highly recommend their routine, surgical, and rehabilitation care.

I used to take my fur baby to other vets but he got really sick and NW Animal Hospital fit us in after closing. The Vet was very kind and thorough. The Vet techs were also very friendly and nice. He survived and I've been taking my fur baby there ever since, so about 10 years now. Everyone is super accommodating and nice. The receptionist greats us and knows my dog by name. We are buying a new puppy and already made an appointment for him at NW Animal hospital, I would not take my pets anywhere else. Also, I never felt any pressure for recommended vaccines or procedures. Take your pet to this place, it's the best!

I have been going to NWACH for many years and have great confidence in the skill and knowledge of their vets. They keep their word and return calls in a timely manner; go the extra mile to ensure successful care of my dogs; and when the sad time came to help one of my dogs leave us, it was done in a truly kind and painless way. He really did just go to sleep. I also use their day care service and boarding facilities. It is comforting to know a vet hospital is just feet away from the boarding area in case something comes up when we are away, which has happened a couple of times!

We take our dog to doggy boarding on a daily basis and every day he's so excited to go in and have a fun day. That isn't the case for other places. The staff is excellent from the friendly and knowledgeable front desk staff to the staff that actually watch and play with him all day. Our dog is our child and we only want the very best for him. Thank goodness for NW Animal!!!

We were recently referred there to have surgery on my 11-year-old dog. It was the best place I could've never of taking my dog to. The care he received there and the outcome of the surgery was more than I had hoped for. I would recommend everyone to go in there
Thank you!!

Great first experience. We needed a new vet closer to home. Very nice facility. The receptionist, vet tech and vet were all friendly. Great care for our two kitties. They took plenty of time and asked lots of questions and were so gentle with the animals. They did an ear culture on one and bladder culture on the other. And they called a few days later to see how the cats were doing. A little expensive? Probably comparable to many other facilities. Glad I read the reviews and found a new vet. Good hours on weeknights and Saturdays.

My dog has a hot spot on his back that got out of control and I decided this morning, he needed to see a vet. Our previous vet seemed unable and unwilling to schedule an appt in a reasonable amount of time so I went to Yelp to find a new one!

We were seen at noon today and had high quality care from the moment we walked through the door. We are switching to this vet for all future care. On top of the great quality care and the like ability of the staff, the price was very reasonable. I'd highly recommend them to other looking for a local vet.
