Meet Our Doctors


Dr. Severin Knudsen


Clinic owner Dr. Severin Knudsen graduated with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. He and his wife moved to Wallowa County in 2018 and purchased the clinic in 2019. Dr. Severin dreamed of running a rural mixed animal clinic that offers a standard of care comparable to what can be found in the largest urban areas. His passions include ultrasound, complex small animal internal medicine and cattle herd health. To this end Dr. Severin has received advanced training in both abdominal and cardiac ultrasound in order to offer services for our clients that previously required a 3-4 hours drive to a specialist. When not working, Dr. Severin enjoys taking advantage of all the wonderful outdoor activities the county has to offer. Hiking, hunting and fishing are a big part of the reason he moved to this beautiful area. Dr. Severin lives in Enterprise with his wife, Dr. Emily Knudsen, MD, and his two young sons along with a plethora of animals.
