Dr. Liane Sperlich


Since I first worked in a veterinary clinic in high school, I have been passionate about animal medicine. I received my undergraduate and veterinary degree from Washington State University (Go Cougars!), and worked in private practice since 1988.

My desire for continuing education is still going strong, and I’ve sought additional training in veterinary acupuncture, chiropractics, and utilizing herbal medicines to treat as wide a range of conditions as possible.

Currently I live with my husband Thomas in Tacoma with our herd of cats. When I am not hard at work, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and learning languages. Fun fact: I hold a Shodan in Aikido and study at Tacoma Aikikai!

The best vet I’ve seen. Dr. Sperlich is AMAZING! She provides traditional and alternative medicine for pets. She educates the pet parents and offers options. She is reasonably priced and spends more time with your pet than most vets! I’d recommend her to anyone with pets!

Dr. Sperlich is a rare breed. She is completely devoted to the well-being of the animals, and exhibits genuine compassion and care for the guardian as well. Her devotion to our cat, raised the quality of his life for many years, and as a result, raised the quality of our lives as well. Our experience with Dr. Sperlich has been exemplary, we would not take our animals to anyone else for their care. It was traumatic to have to put our cat down, and her compassion made it bearable. We are so thankful for Dr. Sperlich.

Colleen is the reassuring voice on the phone and a welcoming presence at Browns Point Veterinary Clinic. She is an avid consumer of the performing arts and women’s sports, and can be counted on for a good restaurant review.


Supporting the Community Through Noah’s Pet Project

In 1998, Dr. Sperlich saw a need in the community, and Noah’s Pet Project was born in an effort to help low-income families take care of their pets. Once-a-month, the clinic would provide vaccinations, parasite treatment, medical care, and pet supplies (including food!) at a lower cost to those who needed it.

Until January 2019, Noah’s Pet Project operated out of any venue it could- even a parking lot for a year! However, the time had come to find a permanent place, and, after some setbacks, this once-a-month vaccine clinic now resides in the Puget Sound Pet Food Bank.
