A little about our history...
In 1980, Dr. John Johnson broke ground on Great Northwest Animal Hospital. At this time, Culebra was little more than a farm road and the land surrounding the build site was mostly pasture.
The small 2000 square foot building was expanded to 7300 square feet in 1985. The building had room for three additional tenants.
The practice was sold to husband and wife veterinarians, Drs. Travis and Michele Wright.
The tenant spaces in the Great Northwest Animal Hospital building were demolished to build a brand new hospital capable of holding more doctors and exam rooms.
Continued growth of the practice demands the need for a 4th full time doctor to be brought on staff.
In 1981, the doors opened for the first time. Great Northwest Animal Hospital was in a much smaller building than it resides in today.
Dr. Johnson, seen working to the right, grew the practice to the point that a second associate doctor was added.
Drs. Travis and Michele Wright purchased the neighboring practice, Heritage Veterinary Medical Center.
The new Great Northwest Animal Hospital opened in March of 2018. We also welcomed in Dr. Loretta Ehrlund and Heritage Veterinary Medical Center as the practices were merged together.
