PRACTICE: OCTOBER 2016
Animal Surgical Clinic of Seattle
The Animal Surgical Clinic of Seattle is celebrating its 30th year in practice. Started by Dr. Kenneth Sinibaldi, a Washington State University graduate, the clinic is well respected for orthopedics, soft tissue and other specialty surgeries. Having always been privately owned and operated, we continue to serve the region by providing individualized care and attention to our patients. Our staff has a very low patient to caretaker/surgical team ratio, providing the level of care owners desire for their beloved pets. 2016 marks this big birthday with the addition of Dr. Leslie Eide, Vanessa Ormiston, LVT, CCRP, Liz Brown, LVT, CCRA, Sunny Rubin, PT, CCRT, and Mike Zylstra, VTA, who are revving up an established rehabilitation program that started 8 years ago in our clinic. Together they are putting us on the Pacific Northwest’s radar as a respected team, tackling post-surgical rehabilitation and conditioning of the canine athlete.
We were the first established surgical specialty clinic in the Seattle area and our rehabilitation department fits in nicely with our desired outcomes for our patients: pain relief, increased activity, faster recoveries and prolonged, healthier lives. It is also great to serve the dog-loving clients, who show great commitment to their pets. We see patients from around the Northwest and continue to grow with stem cell research projects, a deeper focus on sports medicine and conditioning, as well as the continued team oversight on surgical patients. We are also pleased with the addition of a force plate treadmill and will continue to expand as space allows.
