Dr. Kraabel wanted to be a veterinarian before he could spell veterinarian. He graduated from Washington State University in 1989 and moved to Rochester, NY for a one-year internship at the Animal Hospital of Pittsford. Upstate New York was fun but there was too much snow, not enough rain or decent baseball, and Dr. Fritzler was a junior in vet school at WSU. Dr. Kraabel moved back to Washington and joined Lien Animal Clinic in September of 1990. He and Dr. Fritzler were married soon after. In 2011, Dr. Kraabel became a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. He is the only veterinarian in the Seattle area certified in Canine & Feline Practice. Dr. Kraabel enjoys his home, the outdoors, activities with his kids, woodworking, and his work.
