COVID-19 Status Updates

Beginning Monday, August 30th, we will be performing curbside service only for all appointments and food/medication pick-ups.



We know this may be frustrating for some, but we believe it is in everyone’s best interest with breakthrough COVID infections on the rise. Our primary goal is to continue to provide you with excellent care while mitigating risk of COVID related closures or under-staffing. 



Many local Emergency vets are completely overwhelmed, understaffed, and are being forced to have periodic closures, long wait times, and may turn people away. Keeping our staff healthy and working is essential not only for the care of your pets but our veterinary colleagues as well.



Thank you for helping us help your pets. Your understanding is appreciated.


Please text our main number at 206-523-7187 upon arrival. 

A nurse will call for a brief history over the phone and will meet you at your car to escort you directly into the exam room. 


We are not allowing clients to wait in our lobby at this time.



  • Please have your pet safely restrained with a leash or carrier and ready outside of the car when the technician arrives.
  • We will ask for a credit or debit card at check in for curbside appointment, or payments can be made over the phone with our client care team or in the exam room at the end of your in-clinic visit. Your pet and any medications will be brought out to you at the completion of the visit if applicable. Please be sure we have your current email address on file for your receipt.
  • If you are feeling ill (cough, sore throat, fever, changes in breathing) please cancel your appointment, and call back to reschedule when you have been well for at least 3 days. Or have a healthy friend or family member bring your pet in for you. If someone else brings your pet in, please be available by phone to discuss your concerns or allow your friend or family member to make medical decisions in your absence.
  • Due to the continued increase in demand of sick pets and the more time-intensive curbside protocols, we are still limiting the number of Annual Exams and new clients in order to accommodate our existing clients. Please be patient with our team as we may need to book these well-pet appointments out several weeks into the future.
  • Due to this increased demand of appointments for pets in need, and an increase in New Client no-shows, we are kindly asking for a small deposit for all New Clients to secure your appointment slot. This deposit will be applied to the visit and is fully refundable if canceled with 24 hours’ notice.
  • We also have telemedicine consult appointments available for some health conditions that do not require a full physical exam. Video or phone chat is also available at the time of your pet’s curbside appointment. Please call our office to discuss and set up an appointment.
  • If you need to pick up medications or food, please call ahead to pay for the items over the phone. When you arrive, please call or text and let us know you are here and we will bring the items out to you. Also know we have a wonderful online pharmacy where you can purchase medications and foods delivered to your home. Click here to shop. *Please note we are unable to mail prescriptions from our office to your home at this time.*
  • We are happy to say that we have not had any confirmed cases of Covid-19 in our hospital staff. Thank you again for helping us keep it that way! 😊

There is no evidence at this time that your pets can carry or transmit the virus. Experts do recommend, as a precaution,  to quarantine and limit your contact with both pets and people if you are showing symptoms of the virus and allowing a healthy family member to care for pets if possible. If you must care for your pets while ill, they recommend washing hands before and after care and avoiding touching, petting, snuggling and kissing your pets until you are well again.

Thank you for your support for our team. Stay safe!

Due to high demand, we are only able to accept new clients on a limited basis.

Pet Wellness Care

To ensure that your pet is in the best health possible, we break down our pet wellness plans and services into life stage categories, making sure that your best friend receives the care they need for their age and condition.

Pet Wellness Care at North Seattle Veterinary Clinic

Every pet needs to enjoy lifelong health depends on their own unique condition, lifestyle, and temperament. Starting with your pet’s very first visit and pet wellness exam, we’ll create a detailed medical history that acts as a roadmap for future care. While every pet is different, there are several essentials for a healthy life:

  • Yearly physical exams
  • A balanced diet (we carry a variety of prescription diet foods for pets)
    Daily exercise
  • Grooming 
  • Routine lab work that includes blood, urine, and fecal testing to screen for parasites and other problems
  • Routine vaccinations to protect your pet from harmful viruses like rabies and parvovirus
  • Monthly doses of parasite preventive
Puppy and Kitten Care
When your new puppy or kitten is first welcomed into your home, we like to see them right away so that they receive any necessary treatments. We perform nose-to-tail wellness exams and any diagnostics that are recommended as a means of checking for underlying health conditions. We will discuss your pet’s health needs, from proper nutrition to parasite prevention. We will get your pet started on a series of core vaccines that are recommended for all pets.
Adult Dogs and Cats

When your dog or cat reaches adulthood, our veterinary team can tailor your pet’s care to their individual needs as each adult pet is unique. During this stage of your pet’s life, we recommend annual wellness exams to help us keep track of the progression of your pet’s health and needs. We conduct nose-to-tail wellness exams, perform diagnostics to check for heartworm, and administer vaccinations that have been deemed necessary for your pet’s needs. We will determine your pet’s vaccination needs through a discussion about your pet’s lifestyle.

Senior Dogs and Cats

During this stage of your pet’s life, we recommend a wellness exam every 6 months. Senior pets are the most diverse life stage, with each one being unique, having their own set of needs and health concerns. The recommendations we may make for your pet’s treatments will be based on assessments of their physical condition, as well as discussions with you about their lifestyle. After all, you know your pet best, and we depend on your partnership to give your companion the best life.

 

Our goal is to provide the best possible care and education so that your furry loved ones may enjoy a long happy life with you.

We consider you and your pets family and look forward to meeting you.
