Full-Service Pet Care for Dogs and Cats

Our Portland veterinary hospital team is led by Dr. Rick White, who has practiced in the Cedar Mill Community since 1979 after graduating from Colorado State University in 1978. He purchased Cedar Mill Animal Clinic in 1986, changed the name and directed its accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association in 1992.  

Dr. White is a Slocum trained TPLO surgeon. He has published and presented his unique patented "Isometric Living Graft" surgery for stabilization of cranial cruciate ligament injuries at the 2006 World Veterinary Orthopedic Congress. Our associate veterinarians include Dr. Alec Bailey, a 2007 Oregon State University graduate and Dr. Christine Stuart, who earned her veterinary degree from Kansas State University in 2006. Together with our hospital team, we are your local neighborhood animal hospital.

cedar mill veterinarianOur Portland animal hospital team believes that pet care is an ongoing process that requires communication with you, the pet owner. We take pride in our individualized approach to medicine and the quality of pet care that we provide to our patients and their owners.   

Preventative medicine: Our goal is to provide life-long preventative care, to ensure long, healthy, happy lives for our patients. When you bring your pet in as a puppy or a kitten, we begin with the basics such as pet vaccinations, nutritional counseling, home dental care, and parasite prevention to include fleas and ticks, heartworms and intestinal parasites. Wellness plans are offered on an individualized basis and only after a physical examination and consultation with you, the pet's ultimate caregiver. "Wellness" begins with the love and nurture that you provide and continues with the medical advice provided by our team.  

Internal medicine and surgery: When you bring us a pet with a problem, we provide empathy, understanding, and the experience and resources necessary to help diagnose and solve your pet's problem. As vets with decades of combined hands-on experience with pets, Drs. White, Bailey and Stuart have an excellent skill and knowledge base from which to draw as they treat your pets. Pet orthopedic surgery is one of our focuses here and we are happy to help so many animals recover from skeletal disorders thanks to our highly experienced team.  

Pain Management: Your pet's quality of life depends upon the ability to live life, run and play, free from pain. We take this to heart and provide a multi-modal approach to pet pain management. Whether it is management of acute pain due to injury or surgery, or chronic pain from arthritis, we have the compassion, knowledge and skill set to help maximize your pet's comfort.  As part of our pain management program we offer cold laser therapy.   

We value our patients and provide a range of services to keep pets healthy and thriving. Thank you for visiting our website. We are glad you're here, and look forward to seeing you at the hospital!
