Your Pet. Our Purpose.

At Companion Animal Wellness Center, we believe our ability to provide excellent veterinary care is grounded in our relationship with you. Each family we serve is unique and deserves to have veterinary care that is customized to meet the needs of both people and their pets. As an AAHA-accredited hospital (see below), we specialize in providing primary preventive care for your dog, cat, and/or pocket pet, as well as education for you.

How Our Veterinary Hospital Came To Be

We opened our veterinary hospital in Poulsbo, WA in 2003 at a time when the trend towards large corporate entities and big box stores in veterinary medicine was just beginning. Our vision was different: to stay small enough to know each of our clients and patients as individuals. We found a beautiful location in Poulsbo overlooking the bay that is mid-way between and convenient to both Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island, Washington, outfitted it with appropriate equipment, and staffed it with a group of talented and compassionate professionals. If you’re a pet parent who wants to be in touch with your pet’s health care, we’re the veterinary team for you.

We’re an AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital

About careful examinations to identify existing problems and prevent future.

Cornerstone of care: regular complete nose to tail examinations of your pet by our doctors.

Our veterinary staff strives to provide exceptional care for cat and dogs tailored to meet the needs of the people who love them. We follow standards established by the American Animal Hospital Association so our care meets the highest standards in veterinary medicine. Learn the benefits to your family of choosing an AAHA-accredited veterinary practice.

We appreciate the care and friendly attitude of the entire staff at Companion Animal Wellness Center. Dr. Lisa Newnham has taken great care of our dog, Forest. She has performed surgeries and routine exams — taking the time to give us the information we need to decide on the best care for our dog. Thank you.
