Tumwater Veterinary Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital providing care for dogs and cats. We offer a full range of medical, surgical, imaging and dental services ranging from routine exams and vaccinations, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, to root canals and ultrasonography.

If you live in Tumwater or the surrounding Thurston County area, we would love to be your veterinarian. Our goal is always to provide the best possible care to our patients and to their people. Your pet’s health and well-being is of great importance to us and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care. You will find our staff to be friendly, knowledgeable and communicative.


 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. Cathy Olson , Dr.Stephanie Swearngin, Dr. Dave Cordray and Dr. Katie Rawlings 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.
