Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do You Offer Health Certificates?

Prior to traveling anywhere with your pet, it is advised to look up the travel requirements for your destination months in advance to traveling. This gives you plenty of time to prepare and schedule health certificates for your pet(s) accordingly. Veterinary hospitals have no control over regulations or deadlines that must be met for travel. It is ultimately the responsibility of the pet owner to have all appropriate paperwork and documents prepared in order to complete a health certificate.

Please review travel requirements for both Interstate and International Travel at the APHIS Pet Travel website for most up-to-date information.

We are able to provide health certificates for Interstate Travel with limited availability. Please call ahead to check for availability and schedule an appointment.

We are unable to provide health certificates for International Travel. Please refer to WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital to schedule an International Health Certificate Appointment.

Do You Offer Mobile/At-Home Services?

We currently have limited availability for mobile services such as end-of-life care at home. Please call or chat for more information and appointment availability.

Do Your Veterinarians See Exotics?

Some of our veterinarians will see some exotics/pockets pets including:


Guinea Pigs




Please call ahead for availability or referral to an exotic specialty clinic.

What Should I Do If My Pet Ingests Something Toxic?

In the event your pet accidentally consumes something they shouldn't, such as medications, food items, or other household supplies, it is best to contact us immediately.

In addition, you can call Pet Poison Helpline, the Animal Control Poison Center who have experts available 24/7 to assist you. In the event veterinary care is warranted, the case number they give you will allow our veterinarians to speak to them about your pet's case for additional expert opinions and resources.
