Started in 1996 by Dr. Barbara Deeb DVM, we are a small animal veterinary clinic catering to pets and their owners of the Shoreline and greater Seattle area.
As of 2005 Dr. Karen Obegi DVM serves as main veterinarian to our small but growing staff. We offer open yet intimate exam rooms, a cozy living room style lobby, large back treatment room and a separate area for animals that need a quieter environment to recover from procedures.
We also welcomed back Dr. Jana Rickel, after leaving Allpet to complete veterinary school and gather experience in the veterinary field.
Both of our veterinarians share a special interest in many pocket pets as well as knowledge of cats and dogs.
