About Button Veterinary Hospital
Button Veterinary Hospital is a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care. We have treated pets for 4 and 5 generations of families in South Puget Sound. While our overall approach is holistic in nature (treating the entire patient as opposed to just a specific problem), we have a veterinarian trained and certified to provide alternative treatments such as acupuncture and some herbal formulations. These alternative treatments can be used alone or in combination with conventional medications or procedures. We are experienced in the treatment of dogs, cats, rabbits, and small pocket pets including ferrets, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats and mice.We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with local veterinary specialists when advanced diagnostic procedures are required. Our veterinary hospital includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-hospital x-ray capabilities (including dental x-rays), cold laser therapy, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor kennels for larger dogs.
