Su-Chin Dean D.V.M.


Su-Chin obtained her undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the University of Washington. She was involved with the study of small mammals and songbirds in their natural environment. This special interest carried over into her veterinary studies as she had great fun from rehabilitating Eagles in Sitka, Alaska to hormone studies of endangered species at the National Zoo. She is a graduate of Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, class of 2001. Immediately post-graduation she did an internship in small and exotic animal practice with Dr. Douglas Mader at Marathon Veterinary Hospital, Marathon, Florida. After that, she spent several years practicing in the beautiful and very cold Fairbanks, Alaska. Family life has brought her and her husband, Bob, closer to home. She is now interested in focusing on small animal medicine and making Pet Care Center the best hospital in West Seattle.

Robert E. Griffith, M.S., D.V.M.


Bob was born and raised in Normandy Park. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Biology from Washington State University (WSU), Masters in Science degree in Biology from Eastern Washington University, and Graduated from the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. Along the way he worked on field studies of small mammal, bird and plant populations in Northeastern Washington and the Charles R. Conner Museum of Zoology at WSU preparing study skins and identifying specimens through dental characteristics. After graduating from veterinary school he moved to Fairbanks, Alaska and spent four wonderful, snowy, cold and busy years of practice in a multi-doctor facility. With the birth of their first child, he and his wife Su-Chin moved back to the Seattle area to be closer to family and friends. Bob’s passions in life include his family, photography, woodworking as well as nature and the outdoors. One of his main focuses now is continuing the quality reputation of Pet Care Center and establishing it as the most reputable veterinary hospital in West Seattle.
