The Clinic

Located in the heart of Whidbey Island in Coupeville, Central Whidbey Veterinary Services offers a full range of mixed animal veterinary care. From yearly wellness exams and preventative care to emergency services, we have you covered.

Our small animal clinic includes a surgery suite, where we perform routine procedures, such as spay/neuter, dental cleanings, and biopsies, as well as abdominal and fracture repairs. We offer diagnostics including x-rays, ultrasounds, and blood tests. Because we truly care about your pet, we thoroughly evaluate each animal under our care and can refer you to a board.  We also specialize in large animal veterinary care including horses, sheep, goats and cattle!

We welcome you to visit our clinic and see our exceptional care in action. Our open hours are from 8am – 5pm Monday through Friday. Or, you can schedule your first appointment by calling (360)-678-1881.

Dr. Robert Moody

Dr. Robert Moody has had a lifelong passion for animals. In 1989, he made Whidbey Island his permanent residence after he retired from the U.S. Navy. His love for the island and its inhabitants (both two- and four-legged) inspired him to start a new career helping people and their pets.

In 2002 he graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Veterinary Medicine. Shortly after, he bought his first medical kit and began building a house. Since then he has expanded his practice to include a small animal and surgical veterinary clinic, as well as a mobile clinic for large animal and in-home care. He works alongside his wife Lola, his daughter Jennifer, and his granddaughter Cassidy. His typical patients include horses, goats, donkeys, mules, llamas, alpacas, cattle, pigs, dogs, and cats.

Dr. Moody truly cares about the animals he treats, and takes special care to discuss all treatment options based on their cost-effectiveness and the needs of the animal. He provides emergency services to ensure his patients always have access to the care they need. Dr. Moody takes a humble approach to his practice and keeps up-to-date with the latest research, treatments, and medicine. There is nothing he enjoys more than helping people and their pets stay together.

When he is not on-call, Dr. Moody enjoys diving and learning about the islands’s marine life. Dr. Moody is also a new private pilot and is looking forward to all the new adventures this brings and flying the beautiful skies around Whidbey Island.

Dr. Ana Kidder

Ana Kidder
Dr. Ana Kidder grew up in Oak Harbor and Anacortes and is thrilled to be back on Whidbey Island. A 2019 graduate of Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, she has a special interest in equine dentistry and loves ruminants of all sizes. She is especially looking forward to supporting the agricultural heritage of Whidbey Island.

Dr. Ana lives on North Whidbey with her husband, Clint. They share the farm with their spoiled golden retriever ‘Greta’, a very sweet miniature donkey ‘Rikki’, her gracefully aging trail horse ‘Rue’, and a menagerie of chickens. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Ana can usually be found outside playing in her garden (always a work in progress!) or enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest on foot or from the back of her trusty steed.

  • These guys are straight-up fantastic. They care about what they do and how they treat you and your furry loved ones. I’ve been here for the funnest times (HUGE thank you for the grand opening party; pony rides, face painting, and lunch, at no cost to your guests!!??! WOW), and for the saddest times, when our family pup breathed his last, and weird times, when kitty had allergies (thanks for the follow-up calls!). They’re a dedicated bunch, and sure appreciated!

  • We’re new to the island (last week) and hadn’t had time to find a new vet for our pup. Of course, a late LATE Sunday night need arose in the middle of a power-outage and 30-year windstorm.  One phone call and we were on our way to see Dr. Moody who was just outstanding. He’s a no-nonsense, very practical, and thorough kind of vet who was fun to be with and as keen to know about our dog’s humans as he was our dog.  I cannot recommend him highly enough. NO further shopping; he’s our vet.
