Thank you for your interest in Tumwater Veterinary Hospital and welcome to our home. 

After much consideration, we have decided to close our facility on Saturdays, starting March 28.  This will continue for the next couple of weekends. We know how impactful this is to our patients and clients and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are taking measures to ensure the safety of our staff, clients and patients and this is just one of them. We are continually re-evaluating the situation on a day to day basis. 

If you need medication refills or dietary items before the weekend, please call early so we can prepare them for pickup prior to closing time on Fridays. 
We will reopen again on Monday at 7:30 a.m. to answer your calls.

COVID-19 Operational Changes

 Tumwater Veterinary Hospital was established in Tumwater in 1989 by Dr. Gregg Bennett, DVM. Started as a sole practitioner clinic, Tumwater Veterinary has grown with the support of the local community.  Over the years, we have gradually expanded and have added along the way Dr. Lina Wachsmuth, Dr. Maggie Spath, Dr. Carolyn Painter, Dr.Stephanie Swearngin, and Dr. Dave Cordray to our ever-expanding practice.

  • We provide our patients with state of the art equipment, a clean, comfortable hospital, and a compassionate staff who are just a little bit crazy about animals.
  • We value education and encourage our clients to ask questions and become involved with their pet’s care.
  • Our new state-of-the-art hospital provides clients with an expanded pharmacy and lab, cat and dog kennel areas, multiple treatment rooms, digital x-ray, ultrasound, an advanced surgical suite, easier access and parking, and a larger, more comfortable pet friendly waiting room.

If you want to make an appointment or need more information
