Urban Animal veterinary care: Welcome, new West Seattle Blog sponsor!

Today we’re welcoming a new WSB sponsor, Urban Animal, a pet-care clinic now open at 17th/Roxbury in White Center. Here’s what they would like you to know

We strongly believe in “people and pets over profits” and that all pet owners should have access to affordable, high quality, option-based pet care. To that end, we employ some of the most highly trained general-practice veterinary professionals in the area who are committed to providing “gold standard” veterinary care to every patient that visits Urban Animal. Most of our doctors have advanced training beyond veterinary school, and many of our staff have worked in referral and specialty medicine practices. Our unique walk-in model allows us to help people and pets when they need it most. Whether it’s a routine exam, vaccine, or an urgent-care situation, they don’t have to wait to get an appointment to have their pet’s needs taken care of.

(Cherri Trusheim, DWM, Urban Animal owner)

Our clients often say they feel the difference with Urban Animal immediately when they walk thru the door. Our staff is not only focused on the patients (pets) but also on our clients’ individual needs and situations. We often hear that people appreciate our candor and “zero up-sell” approach, which is part of our option-based, affordable-care philosophy. We firmly believe that the cost of owning a happy, healthy pet shouldn’t be overwhelming.

(Kevin Reed, DVM, White Center Urban Animal doctor)

We are committed to giving back to the communities we serve and support a number of non-profit organizations throughout Seattle including Mary’s Place and Pet Project. This allows us to provide pet care for those who often need it most but can’t afford it. The pets in these people lives often make a world of difference to them.

    So happy about this! We love Urban Animal. The folks at the Capitol Hill location saved us thousands of dollars when our cat needed major abdominal surgery a couple years ago. We were so happy with their care that we’ve continued commuting to their Cap Hill location for all of our veterinary needs for both our cat and our dog since moving to West Seattle.We will be super happy to be able to visit them at their new White Center location without having to fight traffic on 5 or 99 to do so!

    Needed help with our dog on Sunday, and Urban Animal was recommended.  Had never heard of it before.  So glad we went there.  Very professional, very warm and caring.  So glad they were able to help our dog out of an uncomfortable situation.  We are definitely lucky to have access to this great new option.

    This sounds great! I love the vet we have used for years, but the cost of a recent fairly routine procedure was astronomical. Perhaps even more than it would have been for human care. I’ve been meaning to find a new,  basic veterinarian and this sounds like it.

    We have been with Urban Animal and Dr Cherri for many years and love the approach and all aspects of the care. We are soooo happy to have them closer now and highly recommend them! Hands down the most sensible, affordable and loving vet care we’ve ever experienced. Welcome Urban Animal!

    This is an encouraging option for seniors who rely so much on a companion animal, yet struggle to pay their own medical expenses –  much less those of a beloved pet.  It’s also close to Arbor Heights, which is great.

Sorry, comment time is over.
