About Dr. Chris

A life-long dedication to animals

Dr. Chris is an East County native. He went to Franklin High, and then graduated from Reed College before braving the cold for 4 years at the University of Minnesota’s Veterinary School. Gresham Animal Hospital hired him right out of school 20 years ago.

He loved the clients and staff so much that he became the owner of the oldest Animal Hospital in East County. The building was the original from 1944 until a new state of the art hospital was erected on the same ground. His passion is his work, but equally loves his wife Anna and teenage daughter Adelaide. He has 4 cats, 3 dogs and 1 hamster.
