Caring for pets... and their people, too.

Serving the Lynnwood community since 1983!

Alderwood Companion Animal Hospital was founded in 1983 by James McGill, DVM. It began as a single-doctor family practice, and over the last 31 years has grown into a four-doctor practice, while still maintaining a family atmosphere within the hospital. The practice moved to the current location in 1999, which allowed it to grow into a multi-doctor practice. The new location and additional doctors has allowed us to expand hours as well as services.

Our hospital is open seven days a week and offers a wealth of knowledge with our four doctors. We offer routine care and surgical services every day of the week. Our doctors work together to provide the best care for our patients.

At Alderwood Companion we understand that pets are members of your family and we will work hard to keep them healthy and happy. Our doctors and staff are committed to providing excellent medical care for our patients. We look forward to

Great Attention to Human Companions and Humans
Virginia Alonzo from Mill Creek

We were changing vets as we had moved. We received a recommendation from our pet sitter to try VCA Alderwood Companion Animal Hospital. Both of our cats have renal disease and we were concerned that they receive the same level of care and attention as they had with our previous vet. We are SO PLEASED with this hospital! The level of care and attention to detail from the time we first walked in to the follow ups through phone calls and notes to make sure our kitties were doing well is phenomenal. We are very glad to have them work with Bear and Jake!
