Meet Dr. Sandra Coon

Born in Swedish Hospital Dr. Coon grew up in rural Bothell which grew to be suburban Bothell.  She haunted the neighboring dog breeder, sheep rancher, and dairy farm and fell in love with animals and the people who cared for and valued them. She focused her educational efforts toward learning about animals as soon as she was able to read.  One day the dog breeder took her to attend a C-Section to help revive placenta covered puppies new from the womb, from that day to this she never questioned what she wanted to do with her life.  Dr. Coon is committed to the human animal bond and enhancing both the lives of people and animals. She is committed to continuing education averaging over 100 hours of intensive veterinary medical course work every year.  Dr. Coon full filled a long time dream of completing the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society Certification Course, selling her urban practice and changing her focus of practice to Holistic Medicine.  

Dr. Coon loves being a Veterinarian! For the past 25 years Dr. Coon has focused general practice in Veterinary Medicine.  Her favorite area was preventative health care.  She always works hard for her clients to find the very best answers to prevent disease, suggest the best preventative diets, dental care, exercise plan, weight loss schedule, and supplements.  The greatest success is long lived happy, healthy well behaved pets with happy owners.   Dr. Coon’s next part of medicine is helping really sick animals and helping their owners go the extra mile to really open to doors to healing if it will occur.  What we can do is correct everything we know about, look as far as we can, balance the energy, use drugs when needed, and let the body heal if it will. 

She lives in North Seattle near her sister’s family with her husband, son, two dogs, two cats, and guppies.  She thrives in the outdoors practicing permaculture, suburban farming, exploring nature, building in the sandbox, with Knex and Lego with her son.  Dr. Coon volunteers for City Fruit as a Master Fruit Tree Steward teaching people to grow and care for their own fruit trees cityfruit.org, and at Cascade K-8 Community School, in the Shoreline School District.
