Dr. Bob Hogan with Gabe and wife Patty

Bob Hogan D.V.M.

After graduating in Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University, Dr. Hogan began practicing in 1960, and has never looked back. He took over the Valley Veterinary Hospital in 1961 and in 1975 he built the North Bend Animal Clinic.

Then, in 1999 Dr. Hogan sold both practices to become a relief veterinarian. He enjoyed the experience of working with others in his field and, along the way, gained valuable experience and knowledge from his peers. Then, in 2009, Dr. Hogan started At Home Veterinary Services.

When he isn’t taking care of pets and farm animals, Dr. Hogan is giving back to his community—he served five years on the Snoqualmie Valley School Board. He also enjoys hiking, especially the Rattlesnake Lake trails in the early morning.

Dr. Hogan and his wife, Patty (who helps with organizing, answering phones and bookkeeping) want to keep their business small and personal. Their desire is to give the best possible service and attention to their client’s needs.

Bob Hogan has 50 years of experience

Veterinarian still makes house calls for pets and farm animals

For almost 50 years, Dr. Bob Hogan has cared for animals with unmatched compassion and boundless enthusiasm.

I still have that fire in my belly and get excited about what I do,” Dr. Hogan says. “It can’t get any better than this!”

Today he is unique in his field, the soul veterinarian of At Home Veterinary Services.

Dr. Hogan began practicing veterinary medicine in 1960, and has never looked back. He took over the Valley Veterinary Hospital in 1961 and in 1975 he built the North Bend Animal Clinic.

Dr. Hogan has a long history of caring for animals in the Valley, both large and small. He cared for the beef cattle on the Boeing Farm for many years, as well as the dairy cows at Norman Brook Farms. He had so much energy and loves practicing so much that he started a mobile vet service in the Snoqualmie Valley.

Since the sale of both practices in 1999, Dr. Hogan has also done relief work for other veterinarians from Puyallup to Mt. Vernon. His knowledge and friendly demeanor have made Dr. Hogan a favorite with both his peers and patients.

He is the most wonderful, caring vet we have ever met”, Veronique and Gregory Silverman say of Dr. Hogan.

When their Great Dane, Blue, fell ill last summer, the Silvermans urgently needed to find a vet who made house calls, and they discovered Dr. Hogan.

He came right away and spent a good part of the afternoon with Blue,” recalls Veronique. “He examined Blue thoroughly, asked us a lot of questions and explained to us all our options. His diagnosis was very accurate, but most importantly, it was the first time my husband and I felt we had found a vet who looked at the animal in a holistic manner.”

Rather than ordering endless expensive tests and examining samples under a microscope before offering a diagnosis, Veronique says Dr. Hogan chose to take a deeper look at Blue and “put all the clues together.”

His dedication to his patients is unmistakable; Veronique says Dr. Hogan still calls regularly to see how Blue is doing.


"He really cares,” Veronique says. “Our only regret is that we didn’t find Dr. Hogan 10 years ago when Blue was a puppy. He is truly an amazing vet.” Nancy Atkins shares the Silverman’s opinion of Dr. Hogan.

When her Siberian husky, Dakota, was attacked by a wild animal, he was injured so badly that he required daily care and medical attention. Because it wasn’t feasible to bring Dakota to the animal hospital every day for treatment, their vet recommended a mobile vet---Dr. Hogan---to help change the bandages.

Despite feeling initially overwhelmed Nancy says that on the first day he visited, “We discovered what a godsend Dr. Hogan was.”

That first day I half-expected Dr. Hogan to say he could not come back because Dakota’s wounds were too extensive. But he didn’t,” says Nancy. “Instead, with a reassuring and calm demeanor, he said that while Dakota’s wounds were among the worst he’d seen, it would just take time.”

In addition to making daily visits to check on Dakota, Dr. Hogan recommended an alternative product to help with Dakota’s recovery that no other vet has suggested.

As a vet that worked on large animals such as horses and cows, Dr. Hogan brought a new perspective to healing large wounds in cases where bandages were just not feasible,” Nancy says. “Dakota wouldn’t be alive today had it not been for Dr. Hogan.”

Dr. Hogan’s mobile veterinary service comes to your home to care for cats, dogs, cattle, horses, swine, goats and llamas. His services include examinations, lab work, vaccinations, health certificates, travel, micro-chipping, parasite control, minor surgery, behavioral counseling, and euthanasia.

When he isn’t taking care of pets and farm animals, Dr. Hogan is giving back to his community—he served five years on the Snoqualmie Valley School Board---or hiking early mornings on Rattlesnake Ridge.
