COVID-19 Policies

We want to assure our clients that we are taking precautions to prevent the spread of illness at Highline Veterinary Hospital. Here are the actions we’re taking:

1) Exam Appointments with a Veterinarian: Please stay in your car and call us to check-in. After you have been checked in, a staff member will escort you and your pet into an exam room. We only allow ONE CLIENT PER PET in the building. Face masks are required to be worn at ALL TIMES.

2) All other appointments and medication pick-ups are performed curbside. Please stay in your car and call us to check-in! (Examples: technician appointments for blood draws, vaccine boosters, surgery admit, discharges, and medication pick up)

We are proud to uphold the high standard of care and reliability that Highline Veterinary Hospital has maintained throughout the years.

Dr. Shawna Wedde

Dr. Shawna Wedde is the proud owner of Highline Veterinary Hospital. She graduated from Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and has practiced in both Seattle and Tacoma. She is the loving momma of three fur-babies: two playful cats (MacDuff and Maurice) and one energetic labrador (Meda). You may find her at the beach or hiking the trails with Meda in the spring and summer. In the fall, she is likely in Pullman cheering on the Washington State University Cougars (Go Cougs!). In the winter, she is either snowboarding, touring local breweries or wineries, or hanging out indoors with MacDuff and Maurice.

I can’t remember when I first decided to be a veterinarian, but I think it was before I could walk. Pets have always been an integral part of my family, and I strive to treat each patient with the same love and care with which I want my pets to be treated. I genuinely enjoy getting to know my clients and working with them to provide tailored care for their pets. As a practice owner, I can lead a team that feels the way I do about our patients and our clients. I feel so thankful to be the new owner of Highline Veterinary Hospital and to be a part of this community. I am excited to meet you!

Allana has achieved a second-degree black belt in Taekwondo and was also an instructor for a year.
