    William L. Sofield, DVM

    Dr. William (Bill) Sofield wanted to be a Veterinarian for as long as he can remember. He grew up in New Jersey and after graduating from Lafayette College he received a Masters degree from the University of New Hampshire. He was awarded his Veterinary degree from Kansas State University as well as a Ph.D. in Veterinary Parasitology. He returned to New Hampshire in 1983 and purchased the Bedford Animal Hospital with his partner Carl T. DePrima DVM. In 2006, Dr Sofield assumed sole ownership of the practice.

    In his practice of Veterinary medicine and surgery, Bill feels that it is important to build strong relationships with pets and their owners in order to best provide for the lifetime health and well being of each pet.

    Bill and his wife, Barbara have three daughters, three granddaughters and two Golden Retrievers, Gus & Maisie. In his time away from work, Bill enjoys many outdoor activities with his family such as sailing, boating, skiing, snowshoeing and hiking.
