My name is Tim John, and I am a practicing veterinarian near Seattle, Washington. I am pleased to be part of a mixed-animal veterinary practice that is the largest in the state of Washington. Our practice includes a thriving equine ambulatory practice as well as board-certified large-animal surgeons and an internal medicine specialist who form the core of our equine referral hospital.
Ecovet is located on the campus of Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital (PVH) in Snohomish, Washington. Ecovet is fortunate to share many of the key individuals from PVH as they bring their unique talents, skills and love for horses to help us serve you.
As a teen growing up in Seattle, Dr. Jim McCutchan looked forward to spending his summers in Central Illinois, working at his uncle’s mixed-animal veterinary practice. His uncle’s mentorship set him on the path to becoming a large animal veterinarian. Having graduated from Washington State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1981, Dr. McCutchan joined Pilchuck’s staff of large animal veterinarians. His special interest is dairy production medicine and, since becoming Pilchuck’s CEO in 1995, veterinary practice management. Dr. McCutchan is passionate about Pilchuck’s ongoing development as a premier veterinary facility and the hospital’s positive contribution to the community. Dr. McCutchan enjoys golfing, skiing with his family, and traveling.
After receiving his veterinary degree from the University of California at Davis, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995, Dr. James Bryant completed an internship at Texas A&M University, followed by a surgical residency at the University of Florida. He was a member of the clinical faculty of both Kansas State University and the University of Florida before returning to the Pacific Northwest, where he grew up. Dr. Bryant has a strong interest in equine sports medicine, particularly lameness diagnosis and treatment of all types of sport horses. He is actively involved in the sport of endurance, both nationally and internationally, and serves on the veterinary committee of the American Endurance Riding Conference. His surgical interests include soft tissue surgery, colic, upper airway, and orthopedic procedures. In his spare time, Dr. Bryant likes to play golf, ride, travel, and attend Mariners games with his family.
