Your Pet’s Complete Wellness
Is Our Priority

flea tick prevention

The Animal Hospital by the Sea puts our emphasis on the whole health of your pet. For decades, veterinary medicine, as with human medicine, had been centered on the treatment of disease only after it appeared. Today, we are able to benefit from so many veterinary advances that have discovered new or better ways to not only treat health issues, but prevent them as well. Gone are the days when an owner could feel that they had done right by their pets in bragging that their animal “had never visited the vet.” Good stewardship of your pet’s well-being involves so much more than waiting to treat problems only after the fact, and we encourage our clients to be proactive with their preventive pet care. Sometimes even a simple adjustment as your pet’s diet or exercise regime can provide significant long-term health advantages. At the Animal Hospital by the Sea, we are mindful of the tremendous amount of information and, sadly, misinformation is available on the Internet. As savvy pet owners, you need an educated and experienced team working on your side to determine what will actually benefit your pet’s best interest. We accomplish our goal by the following:

Listening
We want to learn as much as we can about you and your pet. We appreciate that each individual has specific needs and circumstances that can significantly impact the type of care he or she needs or can be provided.
Learning
All of us at the Animal Hospital by the Sea know that in this day of rapid technological advances, when we stop learning, we can very quickly become obsolete. We constantly strive to better ourselves through continuing education opportunities with experts in the field. We also emphasize learning and listening to our clients, as they know their pets best.
Flexibility
We do not believe in cookie-cutter medicine. We want to do the best for your pet, period. This means that every pet will receive customized care recommendations. We are proud to offer you a wide range of services and treatment options combining up-to-date modern advanced medicine blended with a practical “island sensibility.”
Exceptional care for your pet
Our top priority is always the health and well-being of your pet. At the Animal Hospital by the Sea, we are sure that this goal takes precedence in all that we do.

Animal Hospital by the Sea rocks! Jean is a fabulous veterinarian, the environment is warm and relaxing and there is great communication between Jean and her staff. We are all so very happy to have found them!

Dr. Dieden’s surgical technique allowed our dog a quick and trouble free spay recovery without the stress and discomfort of an Elizabethan collar (head cone).  We are very grateful to Dr. Dieden and staff who assisted with Rena’s surgery.

Meshuggeneh was the most relaxed cat during her visit to Dr.Jean that I think she would have stayed longer. Thank you both Holly and Dr. Jean for your time and help. Best find in Langley... a great vet!

Thank you Dr Jean Dieden for taking such good care of my labrador, Kinsey. Kinsey had a raging hot spot. Thanks to Dr Dieden’s caring and effective treatment, Kinsey is much more comfortable and on the mend.

It doesn’t get any better than this animal hospital for care for your pet.  Jean Dieden and her team of Holly and Stacy are top notch and they are genuinely caring.  I also like the fact that this is a animal hospital and part of that terminology means they do their own blood work.

Dr. Jean held my hand throughout it all and, had it not been for her professional intuition about a prescription Lena was given during emergency treatment, my little girl would not be the happy, healthy kitty she is today. As for how my other cat Dexter feels about Dr. Jean, you can see for yourself around this website.
