To make the experience of bringing your pet to Willapa Veterinary Service (WVS) a pleasant experience for both you and your furry companion.
To make the experience of bringing your pet to Willapa Veterinary Service (WVS) a pleasant experience for both you and your furry companion, we have partnered with the Tokeland Hotel and The Wandering Goose as your full-service lodging and dining option..
The Tokeland Hotel is a short 30-minute (22 miles) drive along the shore of the Willapa Bay, just north of the veterinary hospital. The Tokeland Hotel is the oldest hotel in Washington and retains the peaceful aura of a time before the sound of television and pings on our phones crowded out birdsong or wind blowing across the marshes.
The hotel is well known for its pet-friendly policies and outstanding Southern cuisine. You can view their website, Facebook page, or Instagram account for more information, including the FAQs. All reservations will be handled through the Tokeland Hotel and can be booked online.
There is a 2-night minimum for guests, which aligns well with our surgery schedule. WVS performs surgery on Monday and Wednesday, with an overnight for observation after surgery in most cases.
For Monday surgery, we suggest arriving in the area on Sunday, with a departure on Tuesday.
For Wednesday surgery, we suggest arriving in the area on Tuesday, with a departure on Thursday.
All pets need to be checked into the hospital between 8:30 and 9:00 AM on the day of surgery, with no food being offered after 9 PM the night before surgery.
