    Dr. Paul DeMaris

    DVM, Clinic Owner

    Dr. Paul DeMaris grew up locally in Seattle, WA. Due to Paul’s sincere passion for both animals and science he knew early on that he wanted to pursue a career in veterinary medicine! Therefore, as a teenager Paul worked diligently as both a kennel assistant and veterinary assistant at a local pet hospital. After graduating from high school he was excited and ready to head over to Washington State University to start working towards his ultimate dream in becoming a veterinarian.

     

    After graduating from vet school in 1987 and working for just a few years in the veterinary field, Dr DeMaris knew he wanted to build his own practice, based on his own values.  He wanted to be able to employ caring and compassionate staff that truly loved animals as much as he did! He also wanted to be able to offer high quality veterinary care to all of his patients, at reasonable and affordable costs to his clients. Therefore, in 1990 Dr DeMaris moved to Snohomish and purchased Alpine View Veterinary Hospital. “We give patients the best available care in a family-like environment. My passion is to strengthen the patient and family bond. The greatest part of practice for me is how close my relationships become with my furry patients and their owners.” states Paul.

    When Dr. DeMaris is away from AVVH, he and his wife Barb enjoy spending time with their four children. Eric and Liana are students at Washington State University and are both members of the WSU Crew teams. Maddy and Will are busy high school students at Glacier Peak High School. Their family also has two spoiled and well-loved labs, Roxy and Zeke, who love to play fetch. A couple of funny, crazy kitties, Gus and Lucy, round out the DeMaris household. Dr DeMaris also enjoys playing basketball and hiking. He recently climbed Mount Baker, Mount St. Helens, and Mount Rainier.

    Dr. Blake Murphy

    DVM

    Dr. Blake Murphy was raised in Bothell and moved back after graduating from Washington State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. Blake completed his undergraduate education with a degree in Zoology at the University of Washington. Dr. Murphy has always been interested in the field of veterinary medicine, as family pets were always a staple of his childhood and were considered special members of the family. He knew that a career in this field would be incredibly enjoyable and rewarding.  

    Since joining AVVH, Dr. Murphy has developed a strong interest in internal medicine and orthopedics, but truly values the everyday experiences and relationships he’s developed with his co-workers, clients and their pets. He is married to Jaclyn, a labor and delivery nurse, with whom he raises a son, Nolan, and is expecting a future addition due in December 2012. Dr. Murphy shares his home with 2 dogs, Cosby and Abby, and a cat named Rudihuxtable. When away from AVVH, Blake enjoys working out, following UW athletics, and cheering on his favorite football team the Seattle Seahawks!
