The Blog

Ever wondered the best way to travel with your dog? Or how to give pills to your cat who just hates taking medication? And just what is that leptospirosis vaccine your vet keeps asking you if you want?

We’ll cover all of these questions, and many others in the coming months. Sometimes we’ll have videos, sometimes just short posts, all explaining the different ways to help your pet stay healthy and happy! We’ll even give you a look beyond the exam room door – what really happens in “the back” and exactly what a dental cleaning for your pet might look like.

Thanks for reading!

The Clinic

North Seattle Veterinary Clinic is an independently owned veterinary clinic near Northgate Mall in Seattle, WA. We are a family/companion pet practice, seeing cats and dogs as well as small animals such as rabbits, rats, and guinea pigs. We even see to the odd hedgehog!

We do everything from annual visits to spays and neuters to dental procedures. Please visit our homepage at  North Seattle Veterinary Clinic for a complete list of our services and to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you!

So come and meet us (and the two live-in clinic cats – Wentworth and Loretta) today and let us know what we can do to make your pet’s healthcare journey the best it can possibly be!



While we want to help every pet, we are limited on our ability to treat walk-in emergencies. We are very fortunate in Seattle to have a number of wonderful specialty and 24-hour emergency hospitals nearby.

If your pet is experiencing a healthcare emergency, please do not wait to see your regular veterinarian. Please take your pet to one of the following emergency clinics:
