Our clients love us! Check out some of our reviews below:

I haven't had a vet take the time to talk to both me and my husband in extensive detail and truly help us understand our babes needs. I am beyond grateful with how informative they were and patient and compassionate as well. We spent two seperate phones calls with the vet and each call exceeded 20 minutes. He never rushed us, and took the time really explaining things to us. We are just very grateful for our experience, and so happy to have found an affordable vet, with a sincere passion for their patients and patience with their parents. Thank y'all, the entire staff is caring and sweet!

Dr. Ronald LaVigne is the most thorough, pleasant, helpful and compassionate vet I have ever had. My aging kitty is starting to have kidney issues, and Dr. LaVigne has helped me understand what's going on, never makes me feel rushed. He has even called me in the evenings to discuss test results and discuss treatment options. He works so hard and it is obvious he cares a lot. His staff are also great. Highly recommended.

I love this vet. Dr. Lavigne is incredibly compassionate and makes sure you walk away with a clear picture of what your pet is going through or up against. I've never felt rushed or as if my beloved pet was just one of many patients; he treats you like you are his sole primary focus. I couldn't ask for a better vet to help me take care of my dogs.

I love this place. They take excellent care of my dog and cat and their prices are SO reasonable. My dog had an incident and I would have sworn the bill was going to be close to 2k, but it was less than 800! They are great about getting him in, have helped me get his allergies under control, and accommodate the fact that he isn't dog friendly. He actually loves going to the vet and let's them draw blood and give him shots no problem. They really are the best.

Rylie Colvin

Dr. LaVigne and his staff are the best. They have taken great care of all our pets. We rescued them and he worked tirelessly to solve all their problems. His staff are the best!

Rhonda Coyle Laube

Dr LaVigne is the best! We moved from BL 4 years ago to north end Tacoma and had our fur babies’ records transferred over to a vet closer to us. Well...needless to say...we transferred back and will gladly make the trek to BL when it's needed for our babies to continue to go to Timber Ridge. We love you guys!

Olivia Marquiss

Best care for over 20 years. When we moved, we got a great recommendation from him.
Dr. Ron is the absolute best!

Cj Livingston

We first met him some 20 years ago. When it comes to deciding treatment, he always gives a couple of options and then says “If it was my pet…” As we consider our pets “family” keeping them health and active is important. Ron always cares for them.

Grant Sulham

Every one of our pets has been blessed to have this team take care of them. From their first check up to the final days. They are amazing!!

Dr. Ron is amazing! He took the best care of both my French Bulldogs (Panda & Arrow) from beginning to end, and continues to do so with our sweet lab/ border collie cross Charlie. He and the awesome staff are first rate! Linda is the best!

John Lewandowski

Dr LaVigne (aka Dr. McDreamy) is THE ABSOLUTE BEST! He takes all the time needed and answers all bazillion questions you have. His love and concern for your fur-baby is the most genuine I've ever seen from any vet. He is thorough, progressive, compassionate, patient. I can’t say enough about how much I love Timber Ridge Animal Hospital!

Teri Svedahl

We have been seeing Dr. LaVigne with our fur babies since the beginning and he has always taken great care of them. We appreciate his care, concern and compassion. The staff is awesome too. Thank you, Timber Ridge.
