- Dental CareDespite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria leads to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened gums, and other common signs of dental disease.
- Wellness ExamsYour pet can benefit greatly from regular wellness examinations or checkups. Whether your pet is a youngster, a “senior citizen,” or any age in between, wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information will help us identify medical problems
- SurgeryIn our continuing efforts to offer the highest quality veterinary medicine, Commencement Bay Animal Hospital is pleased to provide a wide range of surgical services for our patients in Tacoma, WA, and surrounding areas. From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we look forward to the opportunity to care

Highly recommend this dogtor, I mean veterinary. They are very thorough, patient, kind, and compassionate. I brought my 3 year old German shepherd here a few times, and each visit has gone very well. I always ask a million questions after each visit to ensure I'm knowledgeable on how to continue to care for my pup. They always take the time to calm my nerves, and thoroughly go over what they've done for him, and what after care he'll need at home. They always let me know how he did, and give him praise for his behavior. I do typically have to wait 10-15 minutes for them to pick up my pup from the parking lot, but that personally does not bother me. I'm sure like most places they are understaffed, and overworked. All I care about is the attention they give to my pup. Also, you can text your dogtor, I mean vet! They will text me to check in on my pup, and also allow me to text them with questions or concerns. They can usually always get me an appointment within two weeks, which is pretty great considering every other vet I've called was a month out on appointments. Highly recommend for all your pup needs. This place truly cares.Julia M.
We recently started taking our pets to commencement bay animal hospital after moving into the area and we are absolutely in love with the entire staff at commencement bay. They have not only taken excellent care of our pets but they are super easy to work with. We recently had a dental/surgical procedure done on one of our dogs and they were absolutely amazing. Their communication and pricing are top notch. Dr. Martin has excellent bedside manner and is a joy to work with. We’re very lucky to have found such an amazing vet to take our pets to.Emily Culpepper
