Is your pet on a medication that requires you to use hypodermic needles?  These needles, also called "sharps" are considered hazardous medical waste and can not be thrown into regular trash or recycling containers.  West Seattle Animal Hospital offers medical waste disposal containers for purchase at our front desk.  The disposal fee is included in the cost, so you can just bring the container back to us when it is full.  If you do not wish to purchase a container from us, please follow the link below to educate yourself on the proper disposal of medical waste according to the King County Public Health Department.
