Your Veterinarian in Tacoma WA

What to Expect

In your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. 

When you arrive at Avenue Veterinary Clinic, you will be greeted by our friendly staff excited to see you and your adorable pet. The visit will include a total physical exam, with a thorough evaluation from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. This is a great time to discuss with your vet any questions or concerns you have about your pets health. Upon examination, the veterinarian will then discuss a treatment plan  for any recommended wellness care, preventatives, diagnostics, or treatments. We will provide an estimate up front so you can decide what works best for you and your furry friend. Our team will work together to make the visit for both you and your pet a wonderful experience.
