I just moved to Seattle in June 2007 and needed a new vet/clinic for my two pugs. I initially chose Queen Anne Animal Clinic due to close location of my home.
Both my pugs had what was diagnosed as “warts” on their legs from my previous vet in Florida. In making my first visit to Queen Anne Animal Clinic, Dr. Spencer noticed the “warts” and advised me that there was no real way to know for sure if the growths were warts or something else. He explained that I could have a simple test performed to confirm what the growths were. NO PRESSURE at all to have the test. He just made me aware of the test, which my previous vet had not done.
I opted for the test and found out that both my pugs had Canine Mast Cell (cancer and if you are not educated about this, plenty is available on the internet). I was nervous and to some degree skeptical I now had two diagnoses (one from my prior vet in Florida and now something different from Dr. Spencer, which was much more serious).
As I did not know anyone else in the Seattle area and this was a serious diagnosis, I decided to get a second opinion from another vet. I went to another vet in the Seattle area and it was confirmed with that second opinion that Mast Cell was the case in both my pugs. I returned to Queen Anne and scheduled the surgeries for both pugs with Dr. Spencer.
Not only Dr. Spencer, but the entire Queen Anne staff as well as the Greenlake Animal Hospital staff (owned by the same team as Queen Anne Animal Clinic and the surgical hospital for Queen Anne patients) have been outstanding and amazing.
The folks at both Queen Anne Animal Clinic and Greenlake Animal Hospital are not only knowledgeable, but also caring, passionate and professional with very fair/reasonable rates. As long as I live in Seattle I will ONLY go to Queen Anne Animal Clinic and would recommend this team to anyone.
