Burlington and Bellingham Veterinarian

Dr. Mowrer

Dr. Kristen Mowrer is a Skagit Valley native and Burlington-Edison High School alum. She grew up on her family farm just north of Burlington, and her childhood was spent playing in the dirt, riding and showing her paint horse, TJ, and caring for any number of pets that at one time or another included cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits, and fish. She knew from a very young age she would become a veterinarian someday. 

Dr. Mowrer attended Washington State University (GO COUGS!) and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in zoology before attending the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine, where she graduated with her doctorate in 2010. Dr. Mowrer married another Skagit Valley native and moved back home to Bow that same year. Dr. Mowrer worked at Chuckanut Valley Veterinary Clinic for several years after completing veterinary school, took some time away after her daughter was born, and is now back at CVVC caring for the small animals of our community.

In 2016 Dr. Mowrer completed additional training in veterinary Chinese medicine and acupuncture at the Chi Institute and loves incorporating this alternative modality into her Western medical training. Dr. Mowrer also loves dentistry and surgery, and preventative care.

Outside of the office, you can find Dr. Mowrer spending time with her husband and young daughter. She enjoys fixing up their 100-year old farmhouse and playing in the garden. You may also see her out on the roads on her bicycle; she’s completed several 100-mile bike rides and hopes someday to find the time to train for another. Her pet menagerie currently includes two horses, Lucy and Tula, a Border Collie mix, Bennett, and a petite female cat with a pointy goatee, Fraidy.
