If you're like us, your pets have become family members. When a medical issue arises, you want them to have the very best care. Once they are able to be at home with you again, that best does not have to stop just because the veterinary professionals have cleared your pet for home care. Because personal veterinary home care is exactly what we do at Pets At Home. Because we love pets!

Meet our Owners!
Pets At Home was started by Melissa Hoemann and Ashley Gallarza, a pair of long-time friends who had spent many years working within the veterinary field, both in regular daytime and in emergency and critical care medicine. They saw the need in the community for some type of home pet nursing care as many pet owners were lacking in the knowledge, training, time, ability, or inclination to follow through on home care instructions after pets were discharged from the hospital. Visualizing a way in which to better serve their patients and pets throughout the Puget Sound area, Pets At Home was born. Learn more about Melissa and Ashley below:
