  • Best Vet Office

    -Andrae from Tacoma, WA
    Pet Name: Rosie

    I first started to use the hospital in Tacoma on Pacific Avenue for my cat when there was no other offices open at the time of night that my cat was sick. The office is not the closest one to my house, but I was so pleased with the personal service and special treatment that my pet (and furry friend) that I continued to bring my pets there. Recently I had to put my cat to sleep. It was a very sad experience for me and it was also the first time I had to go through that. Dr. Hageman was very sympathetic to my situation, but what really touched me was when she sent me a sympathy card containing my cat's footprints in it. I never would have thought to get those with how upset I was that day and I couldn't thank her more for having done that! I am more convinced than ever that this is the right vet office for me with such personal touches as this!
