She has a wonderful husband, Sam, and 2 adorable little ones- Clarity 5 yrs old, and Cooper 2.5 yrs old. She also has a sweet Yellow Labrador named Charlee, and a spunky little King Charles Cavalier named Daizee Mae.

Casey Kime, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Casey graduated with his doctorate from Washington State University in 1985. Prior to studying veterinary medicine, he received bachelor’s degrees in Chemical Engineering, Zoology, and Veterinary Science, also at WSU.

His unusual background in chemical engineering has given him a unique perspective on the body’s chemical processes and how they can be manipulated through nutrition. These are concepts that he uses daily in his treatment of the many medical conditions that he sees. Although he is not a “specialist,” Dr. Casey has a special interest in skin problems in pets and welcomes these more challenging cases.

Dr. Casey practiced at Parkway Veterinary Clinic in Parkland, Washington, from 1985-1989. In June 1989, he purchased Linden Drive Veterinary Clinic in Puyallup from Dr. Vitt Ferrucci and renamed it Puyallup Valley Veterinary Clinic. He and Dr. Karen have been practicing together in Puyallup since that time. The building was replaced with the current hospital in 2001.
