Clocktower Animal Hospital is staffed exclusively by animal lovers who know pets are members of the family and regard with high honor the human-animal bond. Nobody knows your pet better than you do and you will always find a kind and caring ear. Our doctors interpret your observations with their physical findings and respond with clear treatment suggestions. The doctors and staff are here to assist you in making careful and informed decisions that are right for you and your pet.
Complete & Caring Services
Clocktower Animal Hospital cares for dogs and cats as well as rabbits, birds, ferrets and other pocket pets. We are proud to use the most advanced medical equipment and computer technology to aid in providing the best possible care. Our hospital offers a complete range of medical services: preventive vaccines customized to your pet's lifestyle, surgery, digital x-rays, ultrasound, and extensive trauma and intensive care units. Our in-house laboratory obtains prompt test results that allow the doctors to diagnose and begin treatment immediately. We believe in educating clients about the importance of good dental health for dogs and cats. The hospital equipment includes dental tables and the same high speed drills used by your dentist.
Because your pet ages six to ten years for every human year, annual examinations are the most important thing you can do to help your pet live a happier, healthier life. In addition, before flying domestically with your pet or traveling internationally, we are happy to provide the documentation required by the state department of health, Usda, and/or airlines.
Clocktower Animal Hospital is very proud to have earned the Top Rating for Quality from Washington Consumers' Checkbook.
