Dr. Douglas Fraser, Practice Owner
Dr. Fraser opened Petcare Hospital in 1995. He has built this practice based on a sincere desire for animal wellness, quality medical diagnostics, and building partnerships with pet owners to determine and implement appropriate treatments and general health care.
Dr. Fraser knew he wanted to become a veterinarian since the age of seven. He watched every National Geographic show and read any book he could relating to animals, their behavior and health issues. At the age of 16, this desire influenced him to look for work in veterinary hospitals. He applied for work and was hired by a reputable hospital that was owned and operated by four exceptional veterinarians who had received their doctorate degrees from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania. The University of Pennsylvania is the only school within the United States which awards the degree of Veterinary Medical Doctor (VMD): a degree held in high esteem among the veterinary medical community.
Dr. Fraser's exposure and experience in veterinary medicine was extensive during his time at this veterinary hospital, which he worked at throughout high school and his undergraduate study. Due to his experience, extensive background knowledge and excelling during his undergraduate years, Dr. Fraser followed in his mentors footsteps and was accepted to the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Program.
Dr. Fraser plays a supportive role in donating time and medical care to a variety of groups including Puget Sound Greyhound Rescue and feral and stray cat adoptions. He is also one of the veterinarians for the Seattle Police Department Canine Unit. During the first year of business, Petcare Hospital received a top national award for quality diagnostics. Dr. Fraser has also performed roles pertaining to medical ethics mediation in Snohomish County and has a desire to see that the industry maintains high ethical standards in dealing with pet's care and treatment.
