  • Compassionate & Straight Forward Vet

    -Erika from Portland, OR
    Pet Name: Zara

    Our family brought in our 13 1/3 year old dog, Zara for an emergency appointment on Saturday. Her health & well being had been going downhill for the past month and she seemed to have taken a turn for the worse overnight. The veterinarian, David Mallov, was great. He discussed a list of 5 criteria he considers when evaluating a dog of Zara's age. He met us exactly where our family was at with discussion and answered all of our questions so we could make a good choice about our well loved pet. He even told us a few stories about older pets he's had. Thank you Dr. Mallov for your caring, compassion and straight forward approach.

  • Terrific Care and Service

    -Bernadette Huard from Olympia, WA
    Pet Name: Munchie

    We were traveling through Portland with our 5 pound Chihuahua, Munchie. We stopped for a rest break and discovered Munchie was bleeding profusely from his rear paw. Unfamiliar with the area we made a call to Dove Lewis Emergency Clinic. Dove referred us to VCA, only a mile away. From the moment we walked in the doors we were met by Lita, who quickly not only worked us in, she insured we had a clean blanket, helped put Munchie and I at ease. Next came vet tech Leslie, who whose initial exam and explanation, again helped ease our worry and kept Munchie calm. We met with Vet Jenn Yetis, who provided a course of treatment and ensured us Munchie had managed to pull his toe nail out, a cleaning, bit of a shave and beautiful wrap was completed by Leslie and we were on our way. A beautiful facility, pet and client centered care, done in a warm friendly atmosphere. You could here the congeniality between the staff. I highly recommend VCA North Portland. Thank you for your service.
