VCA Rock Creek Animal Hospital

Christine Brennan, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Oregon State University


Dr. Christine Brennan is a native Oregonian who grew up on a cattle ranch in North Hillsboro. After attending Idaho State University for her undergraduate degree, she attended Oregon State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. From there, she joined the team at VCA Rock Creek Animal Hospital in 2005, as an associate. After a brief hiatus in 2012, Christine returned to VCA Rock Creek Animal Hospital and is now serving as the Medical Director. Seeing pets and building relationships with their people is still her favorite thing about being a veterinarian, but she truly enjoys her management duties as well. VCA Rock Creek Animal Hospital feels like a second home to her, and she hopes her patients and their families can feel that way too.

Outside of work Christine enjoys spending time with her 2 young sons and her very supportive husband back on the family’s ranch. She still thinks the best sights in the world are happy cows in a green pasture, and family working together.
