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

I'm a new cat mom so I got super worried when Karl came down with a cold (sneezing, sniffly nose, extra sleepy) shortly after taking him home from the shelter. I had called another animal hospital that was booked out until April for an initial exam. This was the second place I called and they put me on a cancellation list. No more than 30 minutes later I get a call for a same day noon appointment (huzzah!) Curbside service made it so that they picked up Karl from my car (everyone masked), and I waited as the vet gave Karl an exam. Towards the end of the exam, Dr. Wicklund called me on my phone and gave me a run down of Karl's overall health, what could have caused the cold, the meds he was suggesting for Karl, and letting me know that Karl will need a follow up with a Cardiologist because he found a heart murmur. Dr. Wicklund assured me that he would help me and explained the situation without freaking me out. Since this was my first ever experience with something like this, from the assistants on the phone, to the intake forms, to the follow up texts, everything was handled fantastically. Shoutout to all the staff I talked to, Dr. Wicklund for the help. Can't wait to come back!
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.
