A Perfect Autumn Stroll and Bite to Eat

We recently toodled down to Port Gamble. An autumn requirement. It is a beautiful town any day of the year but a day in fall is the best. It is made for this season. We went out to walk the trails and discovered two things I never knew were there. (Some of you will have known of these gems for years but many, I am sure, do not). There is a pond complete with ducks, lily pads (some sort of aquatic vegetation) and great photographic opportunities. And my dog, Shiloh, found all sorts of neat smells.

A Visit to Poulsbo Marina Veterinary Clinic


Usually I post about fun places to go, but this post is about a good place for your dogs and cats when they are in need of medical services.  This vet clinic seems a little like the “old time” vet offices, where help and service were paramount, instead of expensive decor or taking your wallet to the cleaners.


Voted first place in Best of North Kitsap in 2009 and Best veterinarian in 2008, Poulsbo Marina Veterinary Clinic has definitely earned it’s place in the local pet world.  They have a constant busy schedule and treat all types of animals, plus do a lot of humane work.


The office is unpretentious and efficient with a large, friendly considerate staff.  They are consistent with their hours and service.  With a staff of three experienced veterinarians they are able to provide just about any service you need or will refer you forward if necessary.

Give this office a try if you are needing services or looking to change your vets.  Most likely you will not regret the choice.
