Fair Isle Animal Clinic, a mixed-animal, multi-vet practice, has served the pets and people of Vashon Island since 1982. Vashon Island loves its animals, supports its residents, and treasures having such a high-quality veterinary practice of its own.
At about 11,000 full-time residents, Vashon has a small-town feel with a major city and airport one ferry ride away. The Island is abundant with forest preserves, beaches, waterways, and farm stands.
