Veterinary care for all critters... right at your doorstep!
Carousel Mobile Veterinary Services was founded in 2006 because Dr. Heather and a friend wanted to provide a different option for veterinary care in South King and north Pierce counties, Washington. We work out of Black Diamond to serve our non-human friends in approximately a 45 minute radius. Our new mobile clinic is pictured below. We see dogs, cats, horses, goats, alpacas, llamas, sheep, ferrets and a few barnyard birds like chickens and ducks.
Our mission is to give you the best care possible, in the most compassionate and convenient way. We try to look at the whole animal and help general health by using nutrition, herbs, behavior or environmental changes, medications and surgery. We offer comprehensive physical exams, nutritional consultations, on-site and send-out laboratory analysis, ultrasounds, x-rays, vaccinations, professional equine dentistry, field surgeries, and much more. Dr. Heather is now certified in acupuncture and has been studying herbal therapies over the years so there are many options available. All of this is done out of our mobile workstation.
We offer small animal anesthetic procedures on Wednesdays, performing surgeries and dental procedures right at your doorstep now! We have a surgical laser, which has helped with pain control and recovery tremendously. We use it for all of our spays, neuters, tumor removals, amputations, etc. It also allows us to perform soft palate resections for dogs with brachycephalic syndrome. We have 2 assistants on every surgery day to help provide the best care and support for our patients. We have in-house laboratory abilities so that we can do blood work the day of surgery or we can send out to the lab if we need something more in-depth.
Our Mobile Clinic
Look for us in YOUR neighborhood!
In June 2014, we began a new phase in mobile veterinary services by purchasing a state-of-the-art mobile clinic from La Boit Speciality Vehicles. The clinic is a 26-foot 4x4 mobile veterinary hospital with a built-in surgery suite so that we can provide safe anesthesia for dental procedures and surgeries.
Dr. Heather Stewart is the only veterinarian for Carousel Vet. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2003 and has been practicing in Washington state since then. She has a special interest and certifications in acupuncture and other alternative treatments (see bio page).
Bridgette Tamburello is our office manager extraordinaire and the one you will talk to on the phone and via email most of the time.
Holly Moffatt is our veterinary technician out in the field Monday through Thursday.
Jessica Clickner is our Friday veterinary assistant when we park in front of Cobber’s Pet Pantry and helps at other times when needed as well.
Krista Daily is our veterinary assistant on Wednesdays for anesthesia procedures.
We share a love of all creatures, and a desire to help them live happier, healthier lives with their human companions.
Feel free to email us or call with any questions about our services or availability.
Thanks for stopping by, and we look forward to working with you!
