What Our Seattle Clients Say

Dr. Rickel and Karley are AMAZING. They go above and beyond every single time. I can't adequately express my gratitude for their good care and kindness.

Dr. Rickel & Karley the Vet tech arrived within the time window and were super professional and friendly to their patients. I am really happy I found this type of service for a Vet where all hospitals don't accept any new pets !!!

Dr. Rickel and Nurse Karley have been nothing short of amazing. They care about you and your pets at a deep level and will make sure that your furry friends get good care. BetterVet as a service is great but it’s the human connection that will make me and my wife keep choosing them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need a pet license in Seattle?
Seattle Municipal Code Section 9.25.050 requires that all cats, dogs, miniature goats, and pot-bellied pigs be licensed. Failure to get a license for fees could result in a $125 citation. The one-year license fee for an altered dog is $37 and $105 for an unaltered dog. A one-year license fee for an altered cat is $26, while it costs $79 for an unaltered cat for a one-year license.
How many pets can you have in Seattle?

You may only have three small animals, such as dogs or cats, at your home if your property is less than 20,000 square feet. If you're interested in more unusual pets, you may keep miniature goats and small potbelly pigs.

What animals can you own in Seattle?
Seattle’s ordinance limitations allow no more than three small animals such as dogs and cats (unless your property is over 20,000 square feet). You can also own up to eight domestic fowl (more for lots over 10,000 square feet), but no roosters. Swine are not allowed except for potbelly and only one potbelly pig is allowed per property. Farm animals such as goats, cows, horses, sheep, etc. are allowed only on lots over 20,000 square feet.
Does Washington require a pet license?

Washington does not have a statewide rule about pet licensing, but each county or city has its own requirements. For example, King County pet licenses are required for all dogs and cats eight weeks of age or older living in the Regional Animal Services coverage area. A pet license identifies and protects your dog or cat in case they get lost.

Does Seattle have a leash law?

Yes. The City of Seattle requires all animals (except cats and pigeons) to be on leash except for designated off-leash areas.
