What to Expect


When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on care that improves your bond with your pet, as well as exceptional care and excellent service.  We at Kindness Family Pet Clinic in Forest Grove OR have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet.  We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient.  We also have staff that are Fear Free certified to help your pet stay as calm as possible in our clinic. Call 503-359-9548 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.
Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up.  For pets 7 years and older (senior pets) we recommend bi-annual exams (every 6 months).  This will include a full physical exam; fecal screening and we may recommend bloodwork.  We also recommend dental cleanings to keep your pet as healthy as possible.  Whether you see Dr. Kortyka, Dr. Story, or Dr. Thursam, they will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and you will be very happy you came to Kindness Family Pet Clinic for your pets needs. We ask that you have any previous medical history faxed or emailed to our office prior to your appointment.  It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts.  If you have something like this, share it with our team. 

In some circumstances,  we may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
