Canyon Road Veterinary Hospital P.S.

15114 Canyon Road East
Puyallup, WA 98375



Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets (one human year equals 5-7 pet years), our doctors stress the importance of annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help prevent and successfully treat serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services:  Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.  
Surgical Services:  Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.
Anesthesia:  We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
Internal medicine consults: We offer in-hospital referrals to an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
Radiology Services:  Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.
Electrocardiography Services:  We provide ECG services on-site as well as consultations with cardiology specialists.
