We actually followed Kristi Batterman here many years ago! Once again Kristi and the whole team went above and beyond taking care of our cat Gunther a couple of weeks ago! The whole team is so upbeat and professional! And they really treat your pet like it was their own! Thank you once again Kristi and the entire Petcare team for taking great care of our fur babies! I would highly recommend Petcare to anyone looking for a family vet to take care of all your pets needs!
We just want to give a big shout out to the big dog groomer Yvonne! Thanks for making our fur babies Winston and Freyja look so great! We are so happy you joined the Petcare family!
Are you taking boards? Need to board Brody Wood Nov 4, pick up Nov 7.
I just wanted to give a shoutout!! We have been bringing out fur babies to you for years. We adopted two male kitties a few months ago and it was time for their neuter. I called the office to pleasantly find out, there was a free neuter clinic last weekend. My boys received excellent care and are doing great. What an amazing gift from your clinic. Not to mention my car battery died when I came to pick them up because I left my lights on while waiting 😜. Lisa, the vet tech graciously helped and jumped my car when the clinic looked to be very busy. She was so helpful and friendly! Saved me waiting for AAA. We have had 4 cats, three dogs under your care since 2003. We have since moved out of the area but still come to Mill Creek for vet care. We trust you completely and are very thankful. We have sadly lost a few of them and you were all so compassionate during those times. You are so appreciated so just wanted send my sincerest gratitude. We know our babies are in the best hands there.
Floyd turned 10 today!! We moved over the summer to Oregon and miss bringing him to see you guys! Just wanted to thank all of you for helping us keep him healthy over the years!!
Cooper says thank you for his allergy meds. Much happier! 🐾
My daughter and I are new puppy owners. Petcare Hospital was highly recommended by our next door neighbors. So far we’ve been impressed with their front office staff. Very helpful as we’ve had tons of new owner questions. Today’s 1st visit went wonderful! They got both puppies at the same time. Dr. Howell was extremely thorough and very helpful. This is our forever dog caring home.
This is the shared easement trail near the Petcare Hospital here in Bothell. Thank you for caring for our pet and the beautiful walking trail.
Are you open for grooming? Dog needs 1 shot, got your notice, but would like grooming at same time
Oscar had a lovely time with Dr Batterman today. This is his favorite shelf. See you next week!
Hi! Just wondering what the holiday hours are if I need to bring one of my kitties in Monday or Tuesday. Are you going to be open?
Thank you for taking such good care our babies.
