Dr. Taylor Miller at Tigard Animal Hospital

Dr. Taylor Miller

Dr. Miller grew up in Lostine, Oregon. She spent both her undergraduate and vet school years at Oregon State University where she spent her time involved with animals, theatre, and ballroom dancing. Her animal family has at various times included beef and dairy cows, horses, chickens, two dogs, four cats, and a hedgehog named Nickel.

“I find joy in veterinary medicine when I am able to feel a connection with my dog or cat patient as well as their human. My goal is to demystify medicine such that an owner feels like a fully informed partner in their pet’s care. I believe strongly that this partnership along with a preventive medicine approach is the best way to facilitate a long, comfortable life for every pet.”

Dr. Eddy is originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada and graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada, in 1998.
