History of the Deer Park Veterinary Clinic
The clinic has been in the Deer Park community since the early 1950s. In 1953, Dr. Dean Snook bought the practice from Dr. Jim Lyons. Later that year, Dr. Snook was joined by partner Dr. Ernie Kettel. Dr. Dennis Koesel joined the practice in 1974 followed by his brother Dr. Dean Koesel in 1980. They were later joined by Dr. John Harris (in ’93), Dr. Larry Gay (in ’99) and Dr. Carrie Forster (in '05). Doctors Kettel and Snook have since retired. All of our doctors are graduates of the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine and all five doctors work on both large and small animals. The original clinic was located on east Crawford in the mall across from the Expressway and later moved to its new building on west Crawford near Hwy 395 where it was located for over 30 years. The practice eventually outgrew the building and in April of 1999 construction of the new Deer Park Veterinary Clinic was completed and we moved to our present location at 2915 E Crawford Road, Deer Park, WA 99006. For many years the clinic was primarily a dairy practice. Today, dairy work constitutes less than 10% of our business. Over the years the clinic has evolved into more of a mixed animal practice as the animal population changed. Currently, more than 60% of our patients are dogs and cats. We also work on horses, cows, sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas and most other domestic animals.
