About Vet

I graduated in 1998 from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine with my DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine) Degree . I have practiced non-stop since then as a Small animal Veterinarian seeing primarily Cats and Dogs. I also have a large amount of experience with Rabbits, Hamsters and Guinea Pigs I have been a Practice Owner for 17 of those years. I am constantly amazed at the benefit we get from our pets and the goodness they add to our lives. I enjoy seeing pets in their home environment and feel that I gain a large amount of information by seeing them at home that I cannot get when they are in my Hospital for care. Virtual visits can be a great complement to traditional Veterinary care. Through a virtual visit, I can see how they are acting at home and accumulate a good database of information to decide if it is appropriate for me to: 1. Prescribe and treat, 2. Watch and see, or, 3. Refer for further diagnostics and care in a brick and mortar facility. I look forward to partnering with you!
