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.

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....

Our Clients Love Us!
this review for SSAH is long overdue! Dr. Koenig and the amazing team at SSAH has taken care of Ruby since we moved to Everett in 2014. they have been AMAZING caregivers and always on top of things as a medical office. We moved down to Olympia ~2015 but kept coming up for visits, despite a 3 hour drive sometimes. During covid, I thought we really need to get a vet in the south sound here as SSAH was encouraging me to do all along! There are really great vets down here - and we tried, but realized we only trust Dr. Koenig and SSAH! They are all so thorough and professional. Dr. K is amazing, kind, down to earth and super smart. I adore the whole SSAH team and Ruby is really comfortable here too. we get their care plan with dental - what a great deal. I basically do what they recommend. I rescued Ruby when she was 4 from the largest no-kill shelter in the US (north shore animal league in NY). She was in that shelter over a year having been returned by several families. Before that she was in a kill-shelter in KS after she was found running around in a tornado. She's a 25 lb feist terrier mix and the best friend. Now at 13, Ruby is a good girl and aging well - thanks to SSAH's great care. HIGHLY RECOMMEND TEAM SSAH!
Wonderful vets and front desk staff !!! I would and have highly recommended them to friends and family
