Veterinarian Tacoma

Pets are members of your family. Whether they currently need routine care or are having a medical emergency, you want them to receive the best care possible. As your premier veterinarian in Tacoma, River Road Animal Hospital offers every service you’ll need to keep your pet healthy and happy. Our five Veterinary Doctors are eager to both care for your friend and educate you about preventative measures and services to keep your pet healthy.

Your comprehensive local vet clinic

Boarding Services – The time leading up to a vacation can be one of the most stressful. It requires careful planning in order to ensure you have everything you need and your property will be cared for. One of the biggest stresses comes from your pets. Who will take care of them? What kind of care will they receive? What if they have special needs?

At our local Animal Hospital in Tacoma, you don’t have to worry about your furry friends. Our vet provides for the care of dogs, ferrets, rabbits, cats, and some exotic creatures as well. Your pet will be checked on several times throughout the day by one our veterinary technicians, and if any problems occur, we always have a doctor on the premises. Medications are also administered as prescribed so you can rest assured that when you leave a loved one with our Tacoma vet, they’ll be in capable, caring hands.

Our veterinarians do more than health checkups

Vaccinations – Our vets advise and administer vaccinations and de-worming for all new puppies and kittens. Our health programs save you both time and money by ensuring your new family member stays healthy in the long-term. Programs for both puppies and kittens include physical examinations, animal-specific vaccinations, and fecal exams for worms and parasites. We also chip your pet so in case they ever stray too far from home to find their way back, if animal control or another veterinarian picks them up, they can be identified and returned to you.

Grooming – Many vets only take care of the health needs of your animal. But part of being healthy is looking and feeling great too! That’s why when your pet is in need of a bath or its time to cut their nails, we take care of it for you. Whether it’s standard, medicated, flea or skunk related, or due to grease, our vet techs will get your animal clean.
