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

Will not take my animals anywhere else
Monique from Lynnwood

The staff at VCA Alderwood are very kind, willing to work with you, and are more than happy to tell you the difference between what NEEDS to be done, and what is an optional procedure. I have two dogs that both are clients at VCA Alderwood, and will have a kitten in November who will also be joining VCA as a client. Kari Emery (the primary vet my dogs currently sees) is amazing with animals and kids alike. I have to bring my two year old with me when I bring in my animals and the staff is more than accommodating, to make sure that my daughter is occupied and even allows her to help with the exams (usually just having her help "hold" the dogs for temp check). I will not be taking my pets anywhere else unless I leave the area. VCA Alderwood = AMAZING care for your pets!
