Pendleton Veterinary Clinic was founded in 1947 by a local veterinarian, Dr. Russel Whitford. It was the first veterinary clinic in the area and, at that time, was a mixed animal practice. There were 3 doctors and it wasn’t uncommon for them to fly to do their farm calls as they saw patients from Umatilla to Harney County. The clinic has evolved since that time and is now strictly a small animal. As the years went on our practice outgrew our existing location at 1901 SW Court. Plans were made to expand in a new location and after two years of planning and building, we were able to move into our new clinic at 625 SW Emigrant Ave. Our current facility allows us to better serve our clients and community and offer an expanded range of services.
We offer small animal medicine and surgery, advanced orthopedics, dentistry, digital radiology, boarding, and 24-hour emergency service. We are also the veterinary clinic for Blue Mountain Wildlife and treat different wild birds and raptors in the hope of rehabilitation and release back into the wild.
Our hospital facility includes surgery rooms, digital x-ray facilities, a supervised treatment area, a small animal pharmacy, and boarding facilities. We also provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories.
Our skilled team is capable of providing a full spectrum of comprehensive surgery, medical diagnostics, and treatments to ensure the best possible outcome for your pet. They look forward to providing the best possible care for your pets’ specific needs!
