“Green” Vet Practices
We are exploring ways to make our hospital more environmentally responsible, from the energy, water and supplies we use, to the products we stock and recommendations we make.
During our remodel (which started August 1, 2019), we are incorporating an all-new energy-efficient HVAC system, smart thermostats and lighting, and possibly solar panels on the roof.
We use electronic medical records and are nearly “paperless.”
We’ve installed digital Xrays, eliminating the use of the chemicals, silver, electricity and water used to develop traditional Xray film (and greatly enhancing our Xray diagnostic capabilities).
We’re working cooperatively with the City of Seattle to decrease our electricity and water use by upgrading our lighting, plumbing, and appliances.
We are avid recyclers and composters.
We purchase “green power” from Seattle City Light.
Join us – and receive a 5% discount!
We offer a 5% discount on outpatient services to clients who use alternative transportation to arrive at our door – those who walk, ride their bikes, coordinate their appointments and carpool together, or ride public transportation to arrive at Atlantic Veterinary Hospital are eligible.
Please advise use when you check-in for your appointment that you are eligible for this discount. We will happily oblige.
Watch for updates here as we continue this greening process.
“I had an emergency with the dogs, bad cut on knee that needed stitches, and everyone went out of their way to work us in and get things taken care of. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my fur-kids. I wish my doc was as helpful and dedicated.”
