R.W. (Randy) Ford, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Ontario Veterinary College


After graduating with a degree in biology from Cal. State Univ. at Fullerton, Dr. Ford moved to Guelph, Ont. Canada and obtained a DVM degree from Ontario Veterinary College. After a year in a mixed animal practice, he moved to British Columbia to become a partner in a 5 doctor veterinary hospital where small animal medicine and surgery became his area of interest. After 5 years he moved to Northern California where he met his wife Cheryl and spent another 5 years before moving to the Portland area and settling in Gresham Oregon.

Dr. Ford has spent most of his life on the West Coast and has worked in Gresham area for approximately 15 years. Dr. Ford has found it to be very gratifying to be involved with a practice like VCA 12 Mile Animal Hospital where he feels excellent patient care is the primary focus.
