I graduated from Washington State University with a doctorate in Veterinary medicine in 1978. I have been practicing since 1978 in Snohomish and King County. I received American Board of Veterinary Practitioners certification with Avian species in December 2004. I volunteered as medical director for Sarvey Wildlife Center in Arlington from 1995 to 2014. I have also been a consultant for Cougar Mountain Zoo in Issaquah. I am a consultant for several pet stores and wholesale pet suppliers. I have had the opportunity to treat the most diverse species. I have been practicing mobile since 2002 in King and Snohomish counties. I treat birds, cats, dogs, ferrets, rabbits, rodents, and reptiles.
I enjoy providing services onsite for clients, reducing stress for both the owner and the animal. It is particularly valuable for people with busy schedules, disabilities, senior citizens who may be unable to drive, or pets which do not travel well.
With my Laboit Mobile Surgical Van, I am able to offer quality veterinary medicine and surgery to clients near there home from Marysville to Kent. Equipped with a 7000-watt generator, to produce power for radiographs, high intensity light, a dental unit and more, it allows me to offer a wide range of medical services. Working on a variety of animals from finches to ostriches, mice to beavers, ferrets to cougars and challenging surgeries from a microscopic to a macro level is something I have always enjoyed.
My hobbies include gardening, fishing, camping, and travel.
