Welcome to Summit
We're a uniquely collaborative multispecialty and ER veterinary hospital. Summit was founded by a small team of dedicated local specialists, and we now offer the most extensive emergency and critical care services, as well as the largest team of board-certified veterinary specialists in the South Sound. But even as we’ve grown from a team of 40 to over 200 strong, we have never strayed from the mission that founded Summit in the first place: an uncompromising passion for helping animals lead happy and productive lives.
Our team of practitioners is one of the most comprehensive under one roof in the Northwest. Interaction between the services keeps us all up to date and fosters innovative solutions to complicated medical problems.
Our multidisciplinary hospital allows each provider to do what they do best, while still providing comprehensive care, when needed, for your pet. We combine our strengths, and learn from each other daily, to best serve our clients and patients.
We see patients primarily on a referral basis. While you may self-refer, we strongly encourage you to include your primary veterinarian in this decision so that all members of your pet’s team are informed and involved as we move forward. Learn more about the referral process for clients here and referring veterinarians here.
Our commitment to care
We understand the immense amount of trust it takes to place your animal in our care. Know that we take our responsibility to honor that trust very seriously.
We know that every patient and family is unique, and that communication and collaboration are essential to ensure the quality of a patient’s care over time. We will do everything within our power to find solutions and communicate with you every step of the way.
