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, you are responsible for disposing of your own medical waste.  Please visit the King County Health Department for information on acceptable methods for disposing of sharps.
