Where your pet's health & comfort comes first!

Foothills Veterinary Hospital is family owned and operated by Dr. Richard & Kathy Vetter in Buckley, Washington and is a full service COMPANION ANIMAL & EQUINE veterinary hospital.  We also provide services for pocket pets and small ruminants.  

Companion animal services include cold laser pain and healing therapy, allergy treatments, surgery, wellness and geriatric care and advanced dentistry.

Equine services include advanced dentistry, lameness and pre purchase evaluations, allergy testing, some surgeries, geriatric care, and health care advice.

Our equine dental service travels to clients around the state of Washington and into Oregon. (see

Foothills Veterinary also offers equine "haul in" facilities that allow for 24 hour on site medical management of colics, chokes and wound care, resulting in much better pain managment and recovery rate for your horse.

We invite pet and horse owners to give us a call with any animal care question that you might have.  We believe strongly in owner education as that is the ultimate "path" to better care for our animals. 

We serve clients throughout South King County and Pierce County communities including: Seattle, Enumclaw, Auburn, Federal Way, Bonney Lake, Tacoma, Lakewood, Renton, Maple Valley, Covington, Summit, Spanaway, Frederickson, Puyallup, Wilkinson, Carbonado, South Prairie, Orting, Sumner, Black Diamond, Lakeland Hills, Lake Tapps, Four Corners, Canyon Road, Roy, Graham, Ravensdale, and more.
