To combine my interest in science, medicine and animals to help animals and people.
By practicing high quality veterinary medicine and client care.
We have a great veterinary practice in which you and your pet will feel cared for.” – Dr. Penny Olson

Dr. Penny Olson grew up in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and wanted to be a vet since she was a little girl. Early animal experiences included the family’s cats and spending time in the local woods and ponds looking for creatures. After two years in a Zoology program at the University of Toronto, Penny gained admission to the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph.

Summer jobs along the way included working with seals and other marine life, cows, fish, and rabbits. Upon graduating from veterinary college, in 1996, Penny began her career as a veterinarian working in a small animal/exotics practice before moving to the general practice of the same large referral center in Ottawa where Dr. Chartrand worked.

Penny relocated to Bellevue in 2006 due to Microsoft acquiring the Ottawa software startup where her husband worked. Cats and a guinea pig also made the journey to Washington State. A baby girl joined the family in 2010.

In 2007, Penny became certified in Veterinary Acupuncture at the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course at Colorado State University. She has continued to pursue her interest in Eastern medicine by undertaking the Veterinary Chinese Herbal Medicine Certification course with the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.

Penny is thrilled to have been asked to join the great staff at Eastside Veterinary Associates. She is happy to be a part of a group who values high medical standards and excellent customer service. Penny is eager to continue focusing on her interests in feline medicine, pain management and complementary and alternative medicine.
