VCA Bellevue Veterinary Hospital

David Jones, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, University of Minnesota

Biography

Hometown

Dr. Jones grew up in  Redmond but did some moving around to the midwest (Minnesota and Wisconsin), and then spent time practicing veterinary medicine in the warmer and sunnier climate of Hawaii before eventually making his way back here to Washington to join the VCA Bellevue Team in 2011.

Education

Dr. Jones graduated from Redmond High School before obtaining his B.S. in Bacteriology and Public Health from Washington State University, and then worked at the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine in veterinary microbiology research for seven years. He received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine where he also did a rotating  internship in small animal medicine and surgery. After doing general practice for five years, he then traveled to the University of Wisconsin for a residency in dentistry and oral surgery.

Special Areas of Interest

Dr. Jones is very passionate about canine and feline oral health. He spent additional time doing a residency in this field so he could gain a higher level of skill and knowledge in this area. This allows him to be able to perform many advanced dental procedures and oral surgery beyond what can be performed at most veterinary hospitals.

Dr. Jones is currently undergoing continuing education in the field of ultrasonography for more in depth imaging of the heart and abdominal organs. This will give him an additional non invasive way to gather information and help to diagnose patients.

Hobbies

In his personal time Dr. Jones enjoys hiking, rock climbing, bicycling, attending and participating in dog shows and surfing (in his Hawaii days).

Pets

Dr. Jones adores his 13 year old Australian Cattle dog named Zip. Together they have taken many first place ribbons at dog shows (in Zip's show days).
