About Us

Fairwood Plaza Animal Clinic has provided compassionate, comprehensive care for pets in the Renton area since 1979. From the first check-up through the senior years, we’re here for you and your pet.

Dr. Leroy Davidson started Fairwood Plaza Animal Clinic in 1979. After 38 years of practice, he retired and sold the practice at the end of 2016 to Dr. Sue Moriyasu, who had worked at the clinic as a relief doctor since 2006. Since 2017, Dr. Moriyasu and staff have continued his tradition of compassionate caring for pets.

We are dedicated to not only providing the best preventive and wellness medicine but also partnering with you to see that your pet has as many happy, healthy years as possible by your side. Got a question? Just call. Want to try a new treatment for your pet’s condition? We’ll be happy to advise. Don’t know whether you should see the vet or wait it out? Reach out to us, and we’ll let you know.

Feel free to browse our site and read more about the services we offer. We look forward to caring for your pet!

Veterinarians

Dr. Sue Moriyasu, DVM

Dr. Sue Moriyasu, DVM

(She/Her)

Dr. Moriyasu was born and raised in Washington and graduated in 2002 from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She also has her undergraduate degree from WSU and comes from a long line of Cougars. She has practiced at both clinics and shelters in the Pacific Northwest since graduating from veterinary school. Prior to graduating from veterinary school, she did externships at both the NIH and CDC in parasitic diseases, as well as in immunology and pharmacology labs at WSU, and in comparative medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

Dr. Moriyasu has special interests in preventative medicine, parasitology, shelter medicine, and public health. She believes that the focus of veterinary medicine should be on disease prevention rather than management. Because of this, she is a strong advocate of vaccination, deworming, and spaying and neutering. When Dr. Moriyasu is not practicing medicine, she enjoys movies, reading, traveling, and lives with her husband Dave, dog, Roux, and cat, Oliver!
