Our veterinarians, technicians and other pet-friendly support staff are trained to the highest standards. Their thorough knowledge of the latest procedures and medicines ensures that all our patients get the best in prevention and healing care.
VCA All Critters Animal Hospital has been serving the Issaquah/Redmond/Sammamish communities since 1982. In addition to the traditional services you'd expect from a veterinary hospital, we also offer some alternative treatments, such as acupuncture, for your dog or cat.
Each doctor is available by appointment to discuss your pet's health status, any concerns, and plans for his or her future. We feel this one-on-one relationship will help you best determine what type of preventative care, training, and diet will benefit your companion during the years to come. Regardless of the age of your pet, you will see how quickly you and your companion friends become part of our family, too!
Local Medical Issues
In the Pacific Northwest, there are two major health issues concerning our pets.
The first health issue is internal and external parasites. Many intestinal parasites are spread through fecal/oral contamination, and can cause a variety of health concerns like diarrhea or anemia. Through routine fecal testing we have found that 1 in 5, or 20%, of seemingly healthy pets have intestinal parasites.
The most common parasite we've seen is Giardia, a zoonotic (able to be passed to humans) parasite spread through water sources and oral/fecal contamination. With so many of our family pets spending time at local lakes, this can be a big problem. The only way to know for sure that your pet is parasite free is to bring us a fecal sample to be analyzed at our laboratory.
The second health issue specially affects dogs and humans. Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease found in wildlife and livestock that can cause flu-like symptoms as well as kidney or liver disease. This contagious disease is passed via the infected animals urine into water sources, where it can survive for long periods of time. Thankfully, a vaccine is available that helps to protect dogs from this potentially fatal disease.
Last but most common, many pets can be infested with fleas that can cause them to itch, develop skin infections, or become anemic. We recommend pets be on a parasite and flea preventative to keep pests away from you, your family, and your pet.
Our veterinarians are here to help educate pet owners. We will work with you to develop personalized disease prevention protocol, customized, and catered to each individual pet.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
Caring for pets means meeting a wide range of needs beyond health care. Fortunately, there’s a whole community of organizations and businesses eager to help.
