Many of you know that the rate of anxiety, depression and suicide are alarmingly higher for veterinary health care workers than they are for other Americans. Our mission is to foster wellbeing in our community by tending to the human animal bond with compassionate medical care, emotional support and community outreach.
We here at Puget Sound Veterinary Specialists take care for the caregiver very seriously. Caregivers include our patients’ families, as well as the veterinary health care worker who is often overlooked. Veterinary health care workers include veterinarians, veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants and veterinary client care service representatives.
Puget Sound Veterinary Specialists was founded to offer a beacon of hope to all who need to seek the help of a veterinary specialist. We believe in caring for animals and their caregivers. That’s why we provide the highest quality medical care to our patients and why our social worker offers emotional support to pet parents and veterinary health care workers. We also believe in taking care of our community. That’s why we support local charities, local businesses and invest in pet related education programs.

We took our ferret there after he was diagnosed with cancer. They were absolutely wonderful. All the staff were warm, caring, knowledgeable and helpful. They took excellent care of our ferret and our 10 year old daughter who is so saddened by the diagnosis – Stacie Lennette (Google Review)
