Part of Moscow History

Animal Clinic and Hospital was first opened by Dr. Henry “Hank” Zimet in the basement of his home on 6th and Washington in Moscow.  From this humble beginning where the Food Co-op now resides it grew and moved to its current location on the corner of Logan Street and the Troy Highway.  The house/clinic built by Dr. Zimet was constructed where Moscow’s original blacksmith shop once stood.  During excavation for building a horseshoe was found and placed in the entryway of the clinic where it can still be seen today.

As the business grew, Dr. Zimet found it necessary to add indoor runs in 1966 and an associate veterinarian, Dr. Richard Nelson, in 1973. With two doctors and more patients coming in daily, it was soon decided that even more room was needed, so in 1976,they added a larger reception area, office and exam rooms. Soon Dr. Nelson was a partner, and in order to cope with the increased need for ambulatory services a third doctor was added to the staff. Dr. Val Harris, who is now in Smoot, Wyoming, practiced two years before a new 1980 graduate, Dr. William Cash, joined the growing business. As Dr. Nelson moved on to Seattle to work in research, Dr. Donley Kubasch joined the clinic. Dr. Zimet retired in 1990 and is currently living in Blaine, Washington. In the same year, Dr. Steve Gardai became an associate veterinarian with the clinic, and in 1995, Dr. Kubasch moved on to open his own clinic. After retiring in 1990, he moved to Blaine WA and passed away in 2016. In 1990 Dr. Steve Gardai took over the practice until 2016. Long time associate Dr. Susila Bales is the new owner of the Animal Clinic and Hospital.
