Our Tacoma Animal Hospital

Parkway is located on Pacific Avenue in Parkland, just at the bottom of the hill where Pacific Avenue becomes Spanaway. We are on the left-hand side, facing the hill. We have a large sign with the temperature and time on it, which makes it easy to spot us.

Parkway was started in 1960 by Drs. Tibbitts and Valentine. The clinic moved into a building that was previously a furniture shop, where today Len�s Mower Service resides. Part of the building was devoted to an apartment and a machine shop, but the machine shop was converted to clinic space as the practice grew. Being one of the earlier practices in Tacoma, Drs. Tibbitts and Valentine had a lively practice that treated farm animals, dogs and cats, and the occasional elephant or gorilla from the B&I store. In 1996, a new hospital was built across from the old site, which gave us some much needed room.

Today, we are part of VCA (Veterinary Centers of America). Parkway�s staff is proud to offer care for your dogs and cats. We have three full-time veterinarians and one part-time veterinarian who does specialized surgeries.
