Dr. Levi Klau
Dr. Levi Klau grew up in upstate New York, and graduated from veterinary school at 'The' Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. After hearing about Portland’s reputation, he decided to come try his luck in the Pacific NW. He started with a one-year internship at Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital in NW Portland, but after completing the internship decided that emergency-only practice was not for him, as he wasn’t able to form relationships with clients and their pets. Dr. Klau is now looking forward to meeting new clients and pets at Pet Samaritan, and learning more about rabbits, rats, and guinea pigs from Dr. Ewing and Dr. Erickson. In his spare time, he enjoys riding one of his three bikes around town, bonsai, astronomy, driving to the beach, and checking out art galleries. Levi is currently between dogs, but is either going to adopt a middle-aged Labrador, or get a cavalier King Charles spaniel puppy...or maybe both!
