Meet Dr. Bill
Larson received a Bachelor of Science degree from Ohio State University in
1986, and graduated from Ohio State’s College of Veterinary Medicine in
1993. He moved to Washington State, and began his career working as the
staff veterinarian for several animal shelters in the Seattle area. While
there, he developed an appreciation of the depth of the human animal bond.
After 5 years practicing in animal shelters, Dr. Larson changed direction,
and began working as an associate veterinarian in private practice in
Edmonds, WA. After 4 years, he moved to a small animal practice in
Silverdale. While in private practice, he continued to work with animal
shelters teaching animal
handling skills to volunteers, performing spay and neuter surgeries for the
Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project, and traveling to Louisiana in 2005 following
Hurricane Katrina to work with displaced pets.
While in Louisiana, Dr Larson began to think about and plan for opening the
mobile clinic. A van would have been a tremendous help in a disaster, but
more than that, it would be a great help to people who have trouble
transporting their pets for any reason. On his return, he began to plan the
acquisition of the clinic vehicle. Laboit
Columbus, Ohio built the clinic, and as of September 5, 2006 Peninsula
Mobile Veterinary Clinic, PS began seeing patients. Dr. Larson has
thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of mobile practice, and is looking forward
to many years of providing veterinary care for pets in the West Puget Sound
