Dr. Jill DeSau
Dr. Jill DeSau is a native Oregonian and completed her undergraduate degree at Portland State University. She went on to complete her doctor of veterinary medicine and masters in public health degrees at Oregon State University. In her downtime she enjoys hiking and camping with her husband, stepdaughter and stepson. Her furry family includes two crazy tabby cats and her greatest joy in veterinary medicine is being a voice for animals.
“I believe that humans are stewards of the animals with which we share this world and it is our duty to care for them in a way that promotes a quality of life free from pain and suffering. I believe in the human-animal bond and I have seen first-hand the benefits that this bond brings to both humans and animals. As a veterinarian, I guide and support owners as they care for their furry family members and I am there, standing by their side, as they send them over the rainbow bridge.”
Dr. Bridget Hendricks
Dr. Hendricks grew up in Topeka, Kansas and completed her undergraduate and veterinary degrees at Colorado State University. She has lived in the Portland area since 2011 and shares her home with her husband and 2 cats, Cleo and Macavity. Outside of veterinary medicine, her favorite activities include dancing, reading, and travel.
“I enjoy working together with people and pets, helping educate clients, and staying challenged mentally and learning every day. I enjoy working closely with colleagues that share philosophies on pet care and medicine.”
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. Chicory Eddy
Dr. Eddy is originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada and graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada, in 1998. Her first job out of school landed her in beautiful Juneau, Alaska, where she stayed for 8 years. The rain and isolation finally got to her in 2006 and she moved to Oregon.
Dr. Eddy enjoys counseling clients about preserving the human-animal bond through preventive medicine, particularly nutrition, behavior, and geriatrics.
Outside of work she enjoys gardening, running, and competing in dog sports with her dogs. She is very active in the dog world of the Pacific Northwest, competing in Agility, Obedience, Rally, Nosework, and Barn Hunt.
