Your Pet. Our Purpose.

At Companion Animal Wellness Center, we know our relationship with YOU is key to providing exceptional health care for your pet.  Every person, dog or cat that comes through our door is unique and deserves care customized for their unique needs.  It is our pleasure to design veterinary care that helps maximize the number of healthy, happy years you spend with your pets.

Companion Animal Wellness Center has been an AAHA-accredited animal hospital (see below) since 2004.  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 animal clinic in Poulsbo, WA in 2003.  The trend towards large corporate entities and big box stores in veterinary medicine was just beginning. Our vision was different: stay small enough to know each of our clients and patients as individuals. Our beautiful location overlooking Liberty Bay is staffed with caring, professional veterinarians.  We are located mid-way between and convenient to both Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island, Washington.

If you’re a pet parent who understands good health is the key to a happy life, we’re the veterinary team for you.

We’re an AAHA Accredited Animal Hospital

Each pet receives careful examinations by our veterinarians.

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 clinic.

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.
