VCA North Portland Veterinary Hospital

Jenny Mitchell, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Oregon State University


Dr. Jenny Mitchell attended the University of Wisconsin and earned her BS in Zoology and Biological Aspects of Conservation (double major) in 2001. She then spent time developing her talent for training dogs of all ages and abilities. She particularly enjoyed teaching dog training classes addressing basic obedience, behavior modification, manners, private classes, and socialization using positive reinforcement. Dr. Mitchell is a 2011 graduate of Oregon State University, College of Veterinary Medicine. She is excited to work with us.

Even before Dr. Mitchell applied for our associate doctor position, we were told by some friends and colleagues we should keep an eye out for her. We received glowing reviews from some of her mentors and colleagues at Dove Lewis Emergency Hospital where she just completed her one year internship. During her internship at Dove, she saw sick and injured patients and developed her critical thinking skills and her warm, caring bedside manner. Her medicine is great, she’s cool under pressure, and she absolutely loves practicing veterinary medicine. She enjoys learning new things and talking to clients about their pets.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
