We are saddened to announce that Dr. Barnes has decided to retire at the end of July. Her departure brings an end to her 23 year journey as part of our, and your, extended VCA North Portland Veterinary Hospital family. She has been a cherished member of this family and we will miss her greatly as she begins the next part of her life journey.

To us, her friends, clients, and extended family, one and all, she had this to say:

Over the years, VCA North Portland has been my “home away from home,” my second family. I have loved being a part of it. I hold dear to my heart the special lives that you have shared with me, yours and your pets. Along the way we have changed and grown together. I find myself at one of those life changes now, as I find that my first family needs me now more than ever. Because of this, I will be retiring from veterinary medicine and VCA North Portland at the end of July.

I know that I leave you in the hands of fantastic doctors at VCA North Portland. I wish you all the best, and will miss you in the years to come.

Thank you for being such an important part of my life and allowing me to be part of yours.
