puppy1When you are looking for a veterinary clinic, you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Gladstone Veterinary Clinic in Milwaukie OR have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient. Call (503) 653-6621 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

At least once a year, you should bring your pet to a veterinarian for a check-up. Senior pets and pets with health conditions should be examined at least every 6 months, since their health status can change more quickly. This visit will include a trained technician asking detailed questions about your pet to help us determine if there are any health or behavior concerns, a full physical exam, where Dr. Tanya ten Broeke, Dr. Christy Lee, or Dr. Kristi Winkler will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and a discussion of recommended preventive care based on your pet’s health risks. We’ll also discuss any behavior or health concerns you have, and discuss any recent weight changes, the healthy weight range for your pet, and nutrition recommendations. At Gladstone Veterinary Clinic, our goal is to help our patients live longer, healthier lives. We believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and strive for early detection of any potential problems. You will be very happy you came to Gladstone Veterinary Clinic for service.

Because we like to be prepared for your visit and provide thorough health care, please let us know about your pet’s previous medical history when you schedule your appointment. We will obtain your pet’s previous medical records and review them prior to your appointment, so that we can focus on you and your pet during your visit. It’s best to keep a journal of your pet’s health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.

In some circumstances, Dr. ten Broeke, Dr. Lee, or Dr. Winkler will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery, in order to provide the best care for your pet.
