Steve Larson, DVM, first realized that he had a passion for caring for animals when he was in 7th grade. As part of a biology project, he invited a veterinarian to speak to his class and was thoroughly impressed by her knowledge and love of the profession. After that, many people told him how difficult it was to be accepted into veterinary school, but that only fueled his energy and inspired him to work even harder to get into a top program.
Now, as an accomplished veterinarian, Dr. Larson focuses on helping all of his patients have a productive and stress-free visit. His goal every day is to provide the best possible care and make everybody’s—and every pet’s—day better. Dr. Larson has a “platinum rule” that he follows: Treat others the way they wish to be treated.
