Dr. Steve Blauvelt has practiced small animal veterinary medicine for over 25 years, since graduating from Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1987. His undergraduate studies were completed at Humboldt State University, earning a B.A. degree in Zoology in 1981. Originally a native of Southern California, he has called Oregon home for over 30 years.
Focusing on the health care of dogs and cats, Dr. Blauvelt's main focus in practice is to integrate the ancient wisdom of eastern medicine with the strengths of modern western medicine, providing a more balanced and unique veterinary option for Central Oregon pet owners and their companions.
In 2002-2003, Dr. Blauvelt completed a continuing education course in veterinary acupuncture through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. A working knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine using acupuncture and Chinese herbals has significantly enhanced his practice of veterinary medicine.
'Dr. Steve' enjoys the Bend, Oregon area lifestyle with his wife, two children, two dogs( Maya and Clover), one cat (Elvira), and two backyard chickens (Pearl and Grayson). In his leisure time, he enjoys fly fishing, long walks with his dogs, x-c skiing and family holiday gatherings.
