VCA Snohomish Animal Hospital

Our Hospital

At VCA Snohomish Animal Hospital, we look forward to welcoming you and your four-legged family. We believe that strong relationships allow for the best possible health care for your pets. Our doctor team regularly pursues training and education in their areas of interest like dentistry, nutrition and animal behavior to ensure that they have the most current information to share with you.

Because your time and concerns are important, our promise to you is complete, thorough exams and enough time to answer any questions you may have about your pets care and health. We are committed to making sure that you and your pets have the best possible experience with timely client service and excellent care from our experienced medical staff.

We offer the convenience of boarding for your pets year-round in our temperature-controlled facility. Our excellent kennel staff looks forward to making your pets feel at home during their stay with us.

Dr. Martinson is also pleased to offer her services in Integrative Medicine, which includes both Chinese herbal treatments and acupuncture.

Local Medical Issues

When temperatures drop, some of our senior pets will show more signs of discomfort from joint pain or arthritis.  There are many things we can do to help them be more comfortable, so please be sure mention any mobility or energy concerns to our staff so we can make sure your senior pets are happy and healthy!

Fleas are a year-round problem in our area and cooler temperatures force those parasites into our homes more than in the summer.  We do recommend year round parasite and flea control programs for every pet.  We offer a variety of flea and parasite control products to suit your needs and your pet's lifestyle.

Don't forget that boarding can fill up fast and we do need your pet to be up to date on vaccinations and fecal testing at least two weeks prior to their arrival to stay with us.  We want to make sure that your travels are smooth and without worry so make sure you schedule your pets for their annual physical exam and vaccination updates soon. 


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
