Owner of two aging cats. We have moved around the country and have always had good experiences in the past with AAHA accredited animal hospitals...until we went to VCA West Seattle Veterinary Hospital. I didn't have any single major negative experience, but a build up of many unfortunate interactions with staff left me feeling disgruntled enough to start taking our cats to another vet - despite the fact that this one is 2 blocks from our house. In a nutshell my issues were: 1) inconsiderate, rude, and incompetent office/reception staff. I often stood there for minutes before anyone acknowledged my presence. I once left my cats' medication on the counter and called when I got home to tell them I was coming back to pick it up. The receptionist told me there was no med on the counter. I drove over and there it was sitting right in front of their eyes!! 2) I felt that everyone was so focused on money. When I brought the cats in for their annual, I got a huge lecture about how I needed to start a monthly fund for my cats health expenses because they were going to get "really expensive" as they get older. I know this and did not appreciate the intrusion into my personal financial plan. They also tried charging for a Vet visit for a follow-up vaccination (after cats had tested neg. for FL), even though they had seen the Dr. two weeks prior. That was an EXTRA $152 - an unnecessary expense. I took them to Petco across the street for the vacc. 3) finally, they seemed bad at basic stuff, like drawing blood and physical exams. No cat likes a vet visit, but my cats left their VCA WSAH visits traumatized, with multiple blood draw sites, and tufts of hair missing. Just seemed like they were letting the vet tech student practice on my cats each time I went in.

I've had vets provide medical care for dogs, cats, parrots, ferrets, etc., for over 40 years now and recognize this veterinary hospital as the most efficient and comprehensive operation I've ever seen. I love the separate entrances and waiting areas for cats and dogs. Dr. Plosky has a great bedside manner with pets and people and has been incredibly responsive to all my questions and concerns. The staff perform seamlessly as a well coordinated team and the facility is spotless. My only wish is that they'd expand the practice to include avian care so I could use them for the family parrots too.

This vet used to be good. Then they got huge. They now have staff that is flat out negligent. They failed to diagnose our dog with cancer, which contributed directly to his suffering and early death. Had the vet caught the OBVIOUS issue, we could have treated him before it was a problem. When we took our dog to another vet, they were absolutely shocked that the Dr. at the West Seattle Animal Hospital ignored a lesion in a dog's mouth. They said no doctor should ever do that. I will never take another animal to this clinic. EVER.

I have been taking my dogs, who are just puppies still, to this vet clinic for about six months now. Last month, one of my dogs had a weird spot on his nose. The vet spent nearly an hour with my dog examining the spot and taking samples of it. He also followed up with me promptly as soon as the test results were known. I would recommend this place to all West Seattlites with pets!

I got a coupon in the mail for a free pet exam for your dog or cat for these guys. So we took our cat in. They were very friendly, and throughoughly checked up on our cat. They were also very friendly with her. She is usually a little bad with strangers, but she was really calm with them. They have a spacious waiting room so you can keep your pet away from the unfriendly dog in the waiting room if there is one.

PROS: Friendly, throurough
CONS: Kinda smelly
