PRACTICE: OCTOBER 2016
Animal Surgical Clinic of Seattle
The Animal Surgical Clinic of Seattle offers the largest comprehensive rehabilitation department in the state of Washington. We are proud to provide a service that epitomizes the practice standards set by the AARV: that of collaboration and communication between our surgeons, therapists, technicians, clients and referring veterinarians.
We have four board-certified surgeons who recognize the importance of rehabilitation for their patients and are always willing to discuss cases with the rehab team and referring veterinarians. Our two rehabilitation veterinarians, Leslie Eide, DVM, CCRT, ACVSMR Resident (PE Pathway), and Kristin Kirkby Shaw, DVM, PhD, CCRT, DACVS, DACVSMR, are accompanied by physical therapist Sunny Rubin, PT, CCRT; two LVTs, Vanessa Ormiston, LVT, CCRP and Liz Brown, LVT, CCRA; and a full-time rehab assistant, Mike Zylstra, VTA.
Our veterinarians directly oversee our technicians with all patient care. We see a variety of cases, including post-surgical, neurologic, and chronic pain management. While Dr. Shaw's primary focus (when she isn't being a full-time surgeon) is management of arthritis and orthopedic injuries, Dr. Eide is a true expert in the field of canine agility and sports medicine. She is highly competitive in canine agility with her own dogs, and after joining ASCS less than one year ago, Dr. Eide is quickly building a heavy case load in canine sports medicine, including providing fitness and conditioning programs to help dogs avoid injury.
