About Us


Formerly Peninsula Pet Hospital, we have been dedicated to providing excellent and compassionate pet care to our clients in the Gig Harbor community since the 1980's. We have relocated to a new location and renamed our practice to Uptown Animal Hospital. Our new veterinary hospital is not only a general day practice, but also equipped to provide continuous, 24-hour care to pets requiring support on the road to recovery. Our healthcare team has been selected for their commitment to pet health, their experience and expertise, and their compassionate delivery of service. We partner with our community veterinary hospitals to provide overnight care or emergency services to their pet patients after they have closed.

Dr. Asta Tobiassen, D.V.M., is leading the team as the Medical Director and has been a veterinarian in the Tacoma and Gig Harbor area for over 20 years. Uptown Animal Hospital has a full surgical suite, in-house laboratory and imaging, and can serve all of your pet's medical needs from general day practice to emergency care all in one convenient location. Uptown provides urgent and emergency care services, we're staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we're Fear Free, Feline Friendly, and AAHA accredited.

Our Mission:

Uptown Animal Hospital provides the comprehensive care pet parents want 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We will partner with you to keep your pets healthy and care for them as if they were our own in times of illness. Our team is dedicated to making your bond with your pet stronger through education, prevention, and recommending services tailored to your unique relationship with your pet.
