Commencement Bay Animal Hospital
October – Animal Safety & Protection This month (and every month) is a time to recognize safety measures you should take to protect your pet and ensure they are healthy. Check out the below safety tips:
- Be proactive. Keep all your pets up to date on immunizations.
- Pet-proof your home. Remove or secure choking hazards and toxic chemicals. Make your home pet-friendly and safe.
- Identify your animals. Place tags securely on collars and even label collars with your contact information. If you have more uncommon pets, take pictures in the event they get loose.
- In a disaster, have a plan. Who will be responsible for locating each animal in the house? How will you transport them? If it is a fire, human life takes priority. However, place decals on windows and doors with the number of humans and each kind and number of pets residing in the home. Keep them up to date.
- Learn basic first aid. Caring for your animal at home will prevent a minor injury from becoming severe. Always call your veterinarian if you are unsure.
- Know your animal. If your animal’s behavior changes, watch for signs of illness. Is he injured or spent too much time in the heat? Contact your veterinarian before giving human over-the-counter medications.

I was very pleased and impressed with the organization and precautions taken by Commencement Bay Animal Hospital. They did "curbside" service. We spoke over the phone and texted, someone came to the car to get Betty Jane, who was terrified, but the staff member was very kind and gentle with her. The Veterinarian came out to speak with me after her exam and give recommendations. I was able to take care of the bill over the phone, and Betty Jane was brought back to me safe and sound.
Dr. Rizzo zeroed in on the diagnostic issues quickly and was able to present treatment options that would help my dog if she had bladder cancer or pollups in the bladder. Surgery was arranged by her to be done at my local veterinarian office by a traveling surgeon . She is extremely responsive and did not hesitate in contacting other professionals rapidly to expedite treatment. I recommend her without reservation! She is compassionate and knowledgeable.
