A letter from Dr. Hale:To all of our wonderful clients and their furry family members, Soundview has been my home for many years, and it is hard to say goodbye. My husband and I are moving further north, so I will be starting out the new year at an Animal Emergency Hospital in Redmond. This parting is bittersweet - I will miss the staff and my clients & patients dearly, though I am excited for this next chapter in my career. To all of my clients out there, please don’t worry! I have all the notes and side notes about ongoing health issues with patients and have extensively briefed both Dr. Dowell and Dr. Hardegree to try and make this transition as smooth as possible for you and your pets. Making sure all of “my kiddos” are taken care of in my absence has been my sole focus once this decision was made. I have spoken with some of you personally about recommendations going forward, but for those I have not been able to speak with directly I offer this: Soundview is a wonderful hospital that I love, and I am proud of the medicine we practice. My family lives in Lakewood, and since I’m moving north, I have recommended that they continue care at Soundview with Dr. Hardegree and Dr. Dowell. And if Soundview is booked up (we are feeling the demand and working to try and see as many of you as we can!) please remember that Dr. Martin, Soundview’s founding veterinarian, is just a couple of miles away at Commencement Bay Animal Hospital. I don’t think I can offer you any advice greater than that I offer to my family, and I don’t think I’ll ever break the habit of saying “we” when referring to our wonderful group of doctors. Thank you for your time reading this letter, it is difficult to write as goodbyes often are. I wish you all health and happiness.

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. […]

I just cannot speak highly enough of EVERYONE at Soundview. These last two months have been tough for our pug, but I have 100% confidence in the entire staff. It’s never easy when your pet needs medical attention, but everyone there helps to take SO much stress out of the situation. Even with our pugs last two visits requiring surgery, she still wags her tail and is happy to see everyone there!! Definitely bring your pet here, even if it’s not the closest to you!
I've now brought two kitties to Soundview and I've always been very happy with our experience there. The staff is all super friendly and clearly care about all the animals and their people who come through the doors. Prices are reasonable and I've never felt like they were trying to up sell me. Dr. Hale in particular is wonderful, but all the veterinarians are phenomenal. Highly recommend this clinic to all pet owners in the Tacoma area.
