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 received her Bachelors in Biology at Portland State University, and went on to receive her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She holds certification in the evidence based Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians, providing safe and effective treatments through neuromodulation. A multimodal approach utilizing acupuncture can provide relief for conditions such as osteoarthritis, muscle tension and chronic pain. Dr. Wheeler is also Fear Free certified, working to minimize anxiety and stress for pets during veterinary visits. She finds great pleasure fostering the human-animal bond. Her special interests include geriatric and internal medicine. When not at work she enjoys travel, hiking, gardening, and Sunday brunches at the many great Portland area restaurants. Dr. Wheeler loves spending time with her husband and two whippets (Gracie and Henry) and has a flock of hens
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 medicine. In 2011 Dr. Garden graduated from the University of Melbourne Veterinary School with first class honours. 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 practising 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. Shelby Smyly is a Northwest native from Spokane, WA. She grew up surrounded by animals of all shapes and sizes and knew early 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. As a “Fear-Free Certified” vet, Dr. Shelby Smyly focuses on alleviating or reducing anxiety and fear, associated with veterinary visits. In her free time, you can find her hitting the slopes on her skis, exploring Oregon’s wild coasts and mountains with her husband or playing fetch with her cat Trinity.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR VETERINARIANS & MEDICAL CLINIC
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.
