Welcome New Team Members

We happily announce the addition of two new part-time members to our team: 

Dr. Cydria Schaefer, associate veterinarian
After receiving her degree in veterinary medicine from Washington State University, Dr. Schaefer initially worked with sheep, goats, horses, and small animals. Dr. Schaefer values the integration of allopathic and naturopathic medicine with compassionate, clear communication for diagnostic insights and well-informed, individualized treatment plans. She is certified in veterinary acupuncture and has also studied homeopathy, herbal medicine, osteopathy, and flower essences. 

Dr. Schaefer is a Mind Body Studies practitioner and certified yoga teacher. She enjoys hiking, horseback riding, creative arts, gardening, and sharing company with animal and human friends and wildness in nature.  
 

Emily Turner, veterinary assistant
At the age of two Emily convinced her parents to let her adopt a stray cat, and she has been a dedicated pet guardian ever since!  She earned her BA in psychology, and has devoted that to helping fellow ailurophiles (cat-lovers) understand their cats' behaviors and needs.  After college she worked in a veterinary ER & critical care practice.  The combined philosophies of Eastern and Western medicine have made such a difference in the lives of the animals she has treated and cared for. Getting to know new patients and their guardians is the best part of her day!

Emily and her husband moved here from Philadelphia in 2008 and love living in the Pacific Northwest.  Emily enjoys painting, visiting museums and galleries, walking with her Saint Bernard on Mount Tabor, playing with her cats (she has taught one to play ping-pong!) and watching Grimm.

Medical Cannabis For Pets?

Now that recreational use of cannabis is legal in Oregon many pet guardians wonder about whether using this plant may be beneficial for their pet's ailments and they turn to their veterinarians for advice. However, many Oregon veterinarians will not be able or willing to give any advise on medicinal use of cannabis due to lack of knowledge about herbal medicine or because they are afraid of possible negative legal implications.
