Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Jennifer Nelson is proud to be leading a top notch pet health care team at Mt Hood Pet Medical. Having joined the practice in 2012, she is passionate about being part of the community she serves, caring for both pets and the families who love them. Companion animal medicine has been her exclusive focus since graduating from Oklahoma State University of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. She brings years of expertise in internal medicine, dentistry, general surgery and preventive care. As the hospital leader she also fosters strong collaborative relationships with a wide array of local specialists covering everything from orthopedic surgery to radiology and oncology. Dr. Nelson is a dyed in the wool mountain lover and spends her free time with her partner, two young daughters and Otto the Wonder Dog happily exploring Mt Hood in all types of weather. She enjoys everything from hiking, camping and mountain biking to snowboarding, cross country and downhill skiing.

Dr. Angela Wheeler was born and raised in rural Wisconsin where she was privileged to share a home with many amazing pets. After moving to Portland several years ago, she attended undergraduate school at Portland State University, and went on to receive her DVM degree from Oregon State University. Dr. Wheeler then practiced medicine in Southern Oregon for a number of years before briefly moving to the East Coast, she has since happily returned to the Portland area to call home. Her special interests include: geriatric medicine, internal medicine, and acupuncture. She finds great pleasure in fostering the human-animal bond. When not at work she likes to kayak, hike and travel. Dr. Wheeler enjoys spending time with her wonderful husband, 3 dogs (Willie the dachshund, Kona the Aussie mix, Gracie the Whippet) and kitty-cat (Charlie the Persian).

Dr. Claire Garden developed her love for animals growing up on a farm on the southern Australian coast. Her family farm housed pigs to goats and even two pet emus. Her veterinary career started early, working at the local veterinary clinic as a kennel-hand at age 15. Dr. Garden began a Bachelor of Science (Zoology) at the University of Melbourne and worked as a veterinary assistant until transferring into a veterinary school. In 2011 Dr. Garden graduated from the University of Melbourne Veterinary School with first class honors. She started work at a mixed practice where she worked with domestic and farm animals including rabbits, chickens, the occasional wombat and kangaroo. Dr. Garden moved from Australia to Oregon with her husband (a native Oregonian) in 2018 and joined Mt. Hood Pet Medical. She particularly enjoys practicing internal medicine, ultrasound and loves everything feline. When not in the clinic Dr. Garden loves to paint, garden, enjoys spending time exploring Oregon’s natural beauty and culinary offerings. Dr. Garden looks forward to meeting you and your pets soon.

Dr. Christina Lackey grew up five minutes down the road from the Oregon Zoo and dreamed of taking care of penguins and elephants. When she studied for her veterinary degree at Oregon State University, she re-focused on dogs and cats. She still visits the zoo regularly, but caring for furry family members and getting to know her clients has become her passion. She is especially interested in soft tissue surgery, dentistry and preventive care and internal medicine. Dr. Lackey has two rescue dogs – Graham and Jones – who love hiking, backpacking, and towing her on their scooter when they’re not being couch potatoes. Her household is run by her grumpy old cat, Petra, who secretly likes the dogs but will never admit it.

Dr. SmylyDr. Shelby Smyly is a Northwest native from Spokane, WA, She grew up surrounded by animals of all shapes and sizes. She knew early on that she was going to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Dr. Shelby Smyly headed south to California for college, receiving her undergraduate degree in Animal Science at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. She went on to receive her veterinary degree in Philadelphia from University of Pennsylvania School Of Veterinary Medicine in 2018. Dr. Shelby Smyly started off her career at a 24-hour emergency practice. When she realized her passion for companion animal preventative medicine and fostering long-term client relationships, she decided to make the switch to general practice. In her free time, you can find Dr. Shelby Smyly hitting the slopes on her skis, exploring Oregon’s wild coasts and mountains with her fiancée, or playing fetch with her cat, Trinity.

I had my first visit to Mt. Hood Pet Medical today and was blown away by excellent customer service and even more so that my dog was actually comfortable.

They treated us like family, helped us figure out how to help our pups and explained in detail how to help our pups stay healthy. I am so happy we found them!

We had to bring in two of our animals for emergency surgery.  Mt. Hood Pet Medical kindly squeezed us in and had both our pets back to us before the day was over.
