VCA North Portland Veterinary Hospital

Nicole Chamberlin, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Oregon State University


Dr. Chamberlin earned a BA in Biology from Reed College in 1994 and graduated from Oregon State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. Recently she has worked at Cascade Summit Animal Hospital as an associate doctor and for the Emergency Veterinary Clinic of Tualatin as an urgent and emergency care doctor. She has a strong interest in internal medicine, emergency medicine, soft tissue surgery, and dentistry.

Dr. Chamberlin prefers to use a collaborative interaction style when talking to clients. She believes informing and educating is important and helps clients make good decisions about the care their pets will receive. We quickly noticed our clients responding to her very favorably, like she had already been with us for a long, long time.

Dr. Chamberlin volunteers at the Feral Cat Coalition and Portland Animal Welfare Team, two organizations we think very highly of. She also enjoys cooking, hula dancing, and gardening (aka weeding and mowing), in that order.

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.
