    Lilyanne Coate

    Lilyanne began her career at VCA in 2015. Her experience with Veterinary Medicine began in 1996 when she became a Registered Veterinary Technician in California. She spent 5 years as an RVT in a large high functioning practice.

    After marriage and the birth of her children, Lilyanne’s focus transitioned to the health and fitness industry where she became certified as an indoor cycling instructor. She found a passion in helping others realize their true potential and reaching their goals.

    Education, Fitness, and Animal Health are Lilyanne’s passions. While her family is exploring the Pacific Northwest together, Lilyanne has decided to re-enter the Animal Health Industry and apply what she has learned in Animal Health and Fitness to help her team members achieve their goals and realize their true potential. As technology evolves, excellent customer service remains the cornerstone of small business and Lilyanne hopes to continually improve the customer experience at VCA.

Emergency Care

In case of emergency, please call us immediately 425-697-6106

VCA Veterinary Specialty Center of Seattle is here for you and your pet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No matter what the time of day or night we have a veterinarian and vet techs here to answer your questions and provide you and your pet with care in an emergency situation. 

Our emergency service is designed to be an extension of the services provided by your primary care veterinarian. When your vet is not available, our doctors and nursing staff are here to provide the emergency care your pet needs. In addition to emergency services, we are able to provide intensive care for critically ill pets that have been referred by primary care veterinarians.

Many patients are treated as outpatients. Should your pet require ongoing care, we may recommend that you return to your primary care veterinarian when the day practice opens. For unstable patients in need of further evaluation, arrangements can be made for continued hospitalization and when needed, evaluation by one of our specialists.
