We like all the vets at Fair Isle and especially appreciate Dr. Nell's kindness and care for pets and ability to hear our concerns and observations.They've treated our dogs and cats and took great care of one cat who was injured in a dog attack. They extend themselves to provide services for Pet Protectors and respond to emergencies. There seems to be a slight bias, common among medical practitioners -- towards intervening, medicating, etc - doing SOMETHING. Its good to have a clear sense of what you are willing to do and pay for -- how far you want to go in medical intervention on an animal. State your concerns and limits clearly and they'll do all they can to help.

Leptospirosis is a complex disease. No vaccine is 100% accurate, lepto is found commonly on Vashon from standing water. Once your pet has this disease, the vets(from any clinic) will try to treat this diesease, no treatment for ANYTHING is 100%. Their is only one Lepto vaccination to TRY to prevent lepto, the best ways to avoid lepto in your pets are getting the vaccine and preventing your dog from drinking out of standing water.
Fair Isle Animal Clinic runs a state of the art animal clinic. Every single vet @ the clinic, Wolczko, Coffman, Givotosky, and Ness, are highly trained. The clinic, offers house and farm calls, dentistry, medicine, and prescription food. Just to brag, the Vashon health clinic still has to develop their xrays, whereaes FIAC's are digital.
Fair Isle Animal Clinic also supports Vashon Island Pet Protectors, a rescue organization that is 100% volunteer.
The best way to provide quality health care to your animals are.... Seeing the vet at least once a year, all of the vaccines reccomended, and telling your Veterinarian everything that has happened to your pet that may have caused your pet to be sick.

Nell (& others) have always done a great job taking care of my animals through the years. I feel safe going there. If it weren't for Nell, my dachshund would not be walking (since she ruined a disk at age 5 & is now age 13 and bouncing around!). I was living in Seattle & took her to a vet there. The anti-inflam's didn't do a thing & they said $3,000 surgery paid upfront & 50/50 chance she'd ever walk again. Nell did acupuncture & she started moving after the 1st visit. I haven't lived on Vashon for many years but still bring my pets there even when I lived in Boston. Nell does a great job investigating. I wish I would have followed through with her instead of the 'specialist' (Dr. Duclos) that a friend referred me to who ultimately killed my other dog experimenting with a new drug (without telling me & wouldn't answer my calls) for vasculitis. I felt like I outlived my son when he died. It was an aweful slow body shutting down death. He would be alive if I had followed through with Nell. BTW-They listened to me & agreed that a particular ingredient in the annual vaccine would have an allergic reaction in Dachshunds & took it out!

My dog was vaccinated for leptospirosis at Fair Isle. I was led to believe it would prevent him from getting the disease. When my dog got sick, a friend said the symptoms sounded like leptospirosis. I took him to another vet who said it was lepto. I told him that he had to be wrong, the dog was vaccinated against it. He told me that there is no vaccination for the leptospirosis types on Vashon Island. The fact that the vaccination wouldn't protect dogs against the lepto was confirmed by another vet. They, apparently, give these vaccines to make money. Both vets said that Fair Isle should have known this and been up front about the lack of protection. It's all about the money. My dog, sadly, died.

Two of my pets died as a direct result of the "services" rendered by these "veterinarians". One was misdiagnosed with a knee injury - it was a spinal injury diagnosed by another veterinary clinic. The other was injected with heart medication for a non-existant heart condition. I urge you to go to any other veterinary clinic.

The vets are caring and compassionate. I once saw a cat by the side of the road. The cat had been hit by a car. It was 10 pm. I called the vet on call at Fair Isle who agreed to see the cat. By the time I got the cat into the clinic (30 minutes later), it was dead. the vet was very nice and did not even charge me.

I have owned a lot of animals in my life, and Fair Isle is the second best clinic I've ever been to. All of the vet clinics I've been to made significant mistakes. Maybe it is not possible to be more accurate in veterinary medicine.

I have been taking dogs and cats to Fair Isle for 20 years. I had one dog die due to drug overdose because the vet did not take into account the fact that the dog was not eating. I took in another dog who had muscle wasting in the face. The first vet I saw told me not to worry about it. I researched it on the internet and found that dog had an autoimmune disease that needed to be treated immediately to prevent loss of ability to eat. I went back and saw another vet who correctly diagnosed the problem and successfully treated the dog. the second vet knew how to prevent toxic side effect of the strong drugs used. Another dog almost died because both of the radiologists they use went away at the same time and the xray did not get read. When finally read, the x-ray showed an intestinal blockage. The dog had surgery and survived, but suffered 2 extra days because they did not have someone else to read their x-rays. Another dog had acute renal failure and the first two vets failed to prescribe fluid therapy. One died who might have been saved had the proper therapy been prescribed immediately instead of 5 days later when I saw the third vet.

We had to have a dear family pet put to sleep here. The staff and vet were extremely kind and considerate. They also participate with Vashon Island Pet Protectors for reduced rate services.
