Dr. Wilson Karalus, DVM
Dr. Wilson Karalus graduated in 2013 from Massey University in New Zealand. He was born and raised in Gisborne, New Zealand, and spent his childhood on a small farm, with a variety of animals. This is where his love of the outdoors, and his desire to become a veterinarian began. Dr. Wilson met his wife, Dr. Laura, at Massey University, and after graduating they both moved to Ashburton, New Zealand, to practice as mixed animal veterinarians. After 3 years of chasing dairy cows around the Canterbury plains, home was beginning to call for Dr. Laura, and an adventure sounded perfect to Dr. Wilson. Originally from Maryland, Dr. Laura had previously fallen in love with Portland, Oregon, so they decided to move here. After a brief stint in Oregon City, Dr. Wilson joined the team here at Moreland Veterinary Hospital in May of 2017. He enjoys getting to know clients, and is excited to meet you and your pets! His interests include surgery, imaging, and preventive medicine. Outside of work, Dr. Wilson enjoys snowboarding, running, rock climbing, hiking, and fishing. He is happiest when exploring new places, and he would love to share any tips if you are thinking of traveling to New Zealand!
