Dr. Ariel Chapman, DVM


Meet Dr. Ariel Chapman. She is a Bonney Lake native, and is excited to provide care in the community that helped raise her. Dr. Chapman went to Washington State University for her Bachelor's in Animal Science and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. GO COUGS! When not in the clinic, you will find her with her family either snuggling her 3 dogs and 2 cats on the couch or doing anything outdoors from hiking, boating to snowmobiling.

Hailing from a beef cattle background, Dr. Chapman quickly learned she much prefers the small animal side of practice and medicine (but still carries a strong love for beef cattle production and management, just ask her about her cow obsession). Her passions surround hospice and end of life care ensuring your furry family members stay happy, healthy and comfortable for as long as possible. She also has a passion for soft tissue surgery.

Dr. Chapman is ecstatic to join the Timer Ridge Animal Hospital team and is ready to continue to provide quality care and compassion for you and your family.

Veterinary Assistants

Veterinary Assistant

I am currently a student at WSU working towards being a veterinarian. I have a cat named cleo and a springer/lab mix named max. I love a good adventure so hiking or exploring new places in my free time Is when I have the most fun! I think you can never have enough plants as I have about 10. Lastly, I have watched the office more than a thousand times and it is my favorite show. So if you ever find yourself in a game of trivia about the office, I’m your girl.
