Mountain Veiw Animal Hospital Story
Welcome to Mountain View Animal Hospital, where we’ve been dedicated to providing compassionate, reliable veterinary care in a small-town setting for over four decades.
Our story begins with Dr. Larry Bliven, a trusted name in Snohomish County for over 40 years. In 1978, Dr. Bliven opened Olympic Animal Hospital in Lynnwood, establishing a legacy of care. In 2000, he relocated to our current location in Clearview, and in 2009, we expanded again, building our Snohomish home.
Though our buildings and names have changed over the years, our commitment to treating your pets with love and care has always remained steadfast. We embrace modern equipment and medical procedures while maintaining a warm, down-to-earth atmosphere. We believe in practical and reasonable treatment, and our genuine mom-and-pop philosophy ensures that your pets receive only the best care.
Our core values are simple but profound: Compassion for all creatures, old-school honesty, and reliable, effective medicine. We stand by these values daily as we continue serving our loyal clients and their cherished pets. Thank you for being a part of the Mountain View Animal Hospital family.
