Why Chimacum Valley Veterinary Hospital?

  • Our Location: We are located on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula, situated amidst the ongoing activities of Port Townsend and the nurturing aspects of nature in our temperate climate. This is a unique area with early Native American roots and Victorian architecture along with a long maritime history. Whether you like exploring outdoors with hiking and kayaking, historic landmarks, downtown hangouts, or being surrounded by farms offering organic and local food, Port Townsend has much to offer. With our unique placement we are only two hours from Seattle, an easy ferry ride to the San Juan Islands or Canada, along with accessibility to the Olympic National Park for day and overnight hiking and exploring.
  • Our Care: We are an AAHA-accredited hospital, well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care.

  • Our Mentoring: We offer a comprehensive mentoring program for newly licensed veterinarians to help them be prepared for a variety of situations while giving them the safety to practice their newly learned skills. The program is designed and tailored to the needs of each individual. We have a great team of kind and supportive DVMs and staff who are willing to pass on wisdom to a great new generation!
  • Our Staff: We are fortunate to have a staff committed to our belief of Every Pet. Every Person. Every Time. leading to low turnover and one that continues to grow their skills.

The schedule consists of 30 minute appointment times and a 90 minutes midday break for lunch and to catch up on needed procedures, if needed. We utilize the services of local emergency services for overnight concerns and emergencies to eliminate the need for on-call duties for DVMs. We offer full time (4 days) or part time with or without surgical responsibilities. There are always other DVMs on the floor and available to help and discuss urgent cases and generally collaborate. WE offer vacation time flexibility with many associates enjoying 4 or more weeks a year.

VSOP® is an innovative way to have ownership in your hospital network. It will provide you with the tools to grow both financially and professionally, without upfront monetary investment. As the hospital network grows from your hard work and dedication, so will the value of your VSOP®.


We are part of an innovative network of hospitals that are owned and operated by the veterinarians working in each hospital. Suveto is not corporate ownership, nor private practice, but enjoys the best parts and benefits of both.
