Summit News

Summit is expanding!

We are very excited to finally be breaking ground on a significant expansion of our clinical space! By next Spring, we will have additional exam rooms, a state of the art operating room wing, advanced imaging core with updated equipment, and room for expanding our service lines to better serve you. 

As we continue operations alongside the construction project, here is what you can expect:

  • Our lot will be reduced to one driveway
  • Please Allow extra time for parking. On-site parking will be reserved for clients. If you cannot find parking, please let our team members know for assistance.
  • There may be unexpected noise or vibrations. We request that all animals be secured on leashes or in carriers at all time. Safety is our top priority.
  • If you think your pet may benefit from a medication to help with anxiety or noise sensitivity, please ask ahead of your appointment.

We appreciate your patience and appreciate your ongoing feedback as we continue to grow. 

of focused experience and diverse specialties. A group constructed to offer integrated and complete care to the Puget Sound veterinary community. With roots in Critical Care, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Radiology, and Surgery - our careers have followed different paths. But the common thread that wove us together remains the uncompromised passion for helping animals lead happy and productive lives. Our story isn’t told in the surgery room or on the black and whites of an x-ray. It’s told when a game of fetch is played or a warm lap is filled again. The Summit Veterinary Referral Center was created because this singular solution requires answers to many different problems, and we are this collective.

Summit is very excited to welcome Dr. Katie Nadolny as our first full-time Cardiologist. She comes to us after completing her residency at the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Nadolny enjoys all aspects of diagnosing and treating cardiac disease, but particularly enjoys the relationships she forms with her clients and patients. She understands the stress that having a beloved pet with heart disease can place on a family and endeavors to work with clients to determine what options can give their pets the best quality of life for as long as possible
