In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have implemented policies and procedures that align with the Washington State Veterinary Medical Association (WSVMA) as well as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These temporary regulations are fluid and are updated frequently.

We continue to be committed to providing our clients and their furry family members with the best care in the safest manor possible. While our services may be limited, it is important that we follow these procedures and adhere to the guidelines not only to avoid the spread of Covid-19, but also to prevent the strain on emergency veterinary hospitals and 24 hour clinics. For questions or concerns please contact or to get more information of the impact of Covid-19 on veterinary care please visit the Washington State University Veterinary College website.


Sept 30th, 2021

Due to the recent increase in local Covid-19 cases, we have put a pause on our  “Soft-Opening” procedures. What this means is that we are keeping many of our Covid-Protocols and no longer letting our clients back in the building.

What this means for you:

  • Please continue to call our office upon arrival to let our staff know that you have arrived.
  • Please continue to wait in your car or outside of our office until one of our staff members comes out to you.
  • For special circumstances, if you are approved for an in-clinic appointment we do ask that clients continue to wear a mask inside due to the size of our exam rooms not allowing space for social distancing.
  • We ask that if you or a member of your household is experiencing any Cold/Flu/Covid symptoms, please have a friend or other family member bring your pet while you stay available to consult with your doctor over the phone.

We thank you all for your patience during this pandemic

Best Wishes,
Dr. Emery and the Seatown Veterinary Team


November 4th, 2021
Given the new King County Mandate, we will now be requiring proof of vaccination prior to any client entering the building.
There are several ways for you to show proof of vaccination:
1.  Vaccine Card / Photo of Vaccine Card
2. WAverify Personal Digital COVID-19 Verification Record QR codes
(see for more info)
3. Health App on apple phones can link to your doctors office for vaccine status
A valid photo ID is also required to verify vaccination information.

If you are unable to provide proof of vaccination status, you will not be allowed inside.
Thank you so much for your continued patience and understanding.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Emery and the Seatown Veterinary Team
