Philosophy/Mission:  My mission is to ensure that my patients live the longest and happiest lives possible.  I believe in being proactive and I emphasize wellness care in order to prevent health issues.  For example, administration of broad spectrum parasite control can help to prevent harmful and potentially life-threatening parasites for your pet, your family, and your community.  I also believe in working with and providing education for clients to become partners in their pet's health care.  For example, I enjoy working closely with owners to manage weight in order to minimize long term arthritic changes and also to manage oral health in order to prevent periodontal disease.  These are two areas that owners can play an active role in keeping their pet healthy and happy. 

Claim to Fame/Signature Product or Service:  I love dentistry!  My favorite moments are when I can see the health benefits of an owner's oral home care efforts.  My goal is to eliminate periodontal disease in my patients with routine dental procedures and owner education about appropriate chew toys and home care options.

Community Involvement, Special Notes:  I am a board member at Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital and am an active member of PVMA (Portland Veterinary Medical Associate.)  I have also volunteered to spay/neuter cats at Feral Cat Coalition.  You are also likely to see Pearl Animal Hospital out and about at local pet events.
