Dr. Bruce King

Dr. Bruce King is the owner of and primary veterinarian serving the patients and their owners at Lakewood Animal Hospital.

Bruce was born in Coeur d’ Alene and grew up in nearby Sandpoint, Idaho. He graduated from Sandpoint High School in 1989. He and his family enjoyed much of their time raising livestock and participating in 4-H activities. Even though his family had a small “farm” of 5 acres there was just about every type of pet from chickens to horses and llamas. He competed in horse shows with his Arabian horse and managed a small flock of Suffolk sheep throughout his youth. 

Bruce attended the University of Idaho and graduated summa cum laude in 1991. He was the youngest candidate to be accepted into the veterinary medical program at Washington State University and graduated first in his class in May 1995. He was chosen by the veterinary faculty at WSU to receive The UpJohn Clinical Proficiency Award for recognition as being the top overall student clinician for both the large and small animal components of the veterinary program.
