Veterinarians & Staff
Dr. Carl Anderson, B.A., B.S., M.A., D.V.M.
- Bachelor of Arts Philosophy: University of Washington
- Master of Arts Philosophy: University of Massachusetts
- Bachelor of Science Veterinary Science: Washington State University
- Doctor of Veterinary Medicine: Washington State University
As a Seattle native, Dr. Anderson attended Roosevelt high school and the University of Washington. Later, while a graduate student in philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Dr. Anderson acquired a German Shepherd puppy that tragically died of complications from canine distemper. This experience, combined with a love of German Shepherd dogs, convinced Dr. Anderson to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Dr. Anderson’s special interests include veterinary dentistry and problems of the German Shepherd Dog.
After practicing for six years in a large two-hospital practice, Dr. Anderson decided to establish his own practice on the east side of Lake Union on Eastlake Ave – within walking distance of his home on Portage Bay. Dr. Anderson felt that a smaller neighborhood setting would facilitate his goal of providing high quality veterinary care in a friendly, relaxed manner.
Over the years, Dr. Anderson has actively pursued his interest in German Shepherd dogs, serving a term as veterinary liaison for the German Shepherd Dog Club of America. His other hobbies include running, sports, motor sports, and tending the family farm on Whidbey Island. Dr. Anderson resides on Portage Bay with his wife Maren and daughters Brynn and Lael. The family companions include Tess (German Shepherd), Chia (Pomeranian), and a cat named Charlotte. At the farm live four happy chickens.
