Jim Perry

Dr. Perry received his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Washington, then went on to complete his DVM, PhD and medical oncology residency at Colorado State University. He practiced medical oncology and completed a surgical residency at Aspen Meadow Veterinary Specialists in Colorado, before moving to the Northwest to practice surgery and oncology at Seattle Veterinary Specialists. He spent four years practicing in Seattle, followed most recently by two years working as an Assistant Professor of surgical oncology at the University of Pennsylvania and exploring the East Coast. The latter was particularly exciting to build research collaborations and to teach future veterinarians, interns and residents.

We are excited to welcome Dr Perry as returns to the Northwest to join our team at VCSS. While his focus of practice will be in all aspects of orthopedic, soft tissue and oncologic surgery, he brings extensive experience and expertise as a board-certified specialist in both medical oncology and small animal surgery.

Professionally, Dr. Perry finds all aspects of surgery and oncology rewarding, particularly the strong bond that he is able to form between patients and their owners alike. In his spare time, he loves being outdoors with his family, whether it is the coast, the Cascades, or just enjoying his friendly hometown.
