"Not to hurt our humble brethren [the animals] is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission:
to be of service to them wherever they require it."
Saint Francis of Assisi
We are happy to announce, in December, we are upgrading to DR Digital Radiology.
This new system will be faster, give us more advanced diagnostic capabilites and have vastly improved image quality as well as allow increased soft tissue visualization. There will be decreased radiation exposure for our patients and staff. It will allow for rapid access to Board Certified Radiologists for consultation when needed. Our doctors and staff are doing a happy dance! We would be pleased to tell you more about the benefits for your pets, horses and livestock.
PHONE NUMBER: (509) 925-2833 This number works during business hours and for after hours calls.
EMERGENCIES: The phone number above will reach an after-hours message system. If you choose option 1 you will be connected with the on-call doctor's cell phone to speak directly or leave voicemail. If you choose option 2 you may leave a message but it will not be picked up until the next business day. Payment in full is expected at time of services. We share after hours responsibilities with the veterinarians of Valley Veterinary Hospital and patients may be seen at either hospital.

WILDLIFE INFORMATION: Some of our wildlife services are changing. Due to state administrative decisions leading to the loss of our local rehabilitation support and the loss of a major rehabilitation center in Selah we will no longer be able to handle the volume of wildlife that we have in the past. We will only handle wildlife from Kittitas County. Wildlife coming from other counties should contact their regional wildlife office.
WDFW Yakima (509) 575-2740 WDFW Ephrata (509)754-4624
This means we will no longer be able to handle barn owl babies from the hay companies; they can be taken to the only remaining wildlife rehabilitation center in central Washington at Blue Mountain Wildlife (541) 278-0215 or (509) 366-0888 in Benton City. Please do not bring them to Ellensburg from out of the county as we will not be able to take them. When Ellensburg Animal Hospital is closed or Dr. Fuller is not available please contact the Yakima regional wildlife office listed above or Blue Mountain Wildlife.
If you wish to comment on the lack of support for sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife please contact the regional office of the Department of Fish and Wildlife in Yakima. Our local wildlife agents in Kittitas County have been very supportive, they already carry as much of a work load as they can and are unable to respond to many of these calls.
