Dr. Darrin Kortyka, Dr. Leah Story and Dr. Kirsten Thursam are licensed Oregon veterinarians, treating dogs and cats. Your pets’ health and wellbeing are very important to us, and we take every possible measure to give your animals the care they deserve. We put their health and their emotional well-being first. We understand that bringing your pet to a veterinary visit can be stressful for both you and your pet.

We believe that our patients should experience a low-stress visit, which is why we have trained our staff on special techniques that they use to make the visit as low-stress as possible. This special certification is called Fear Free. Our mission is to exceed your expectations by providing the highest quality medical care, with genuine compassion in a safe and comfortable environment.

Kindness Family Pet Clinic is a full service animal hospital and welcomes both emergency treatment cases as well as pet patients in need of routine medical, surgical, and dental care. Dr. Darrin Kortyka, Dr. Leah Story and Dr. Kirsten Thursam have years of experience treating serious conditions and offering regular pet wellness care.

The special bonds we have with our own pets are our motivation for continuous improvement and for providing an exceptional educational experience for you at every visit. For this reason we are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Please feel free to browse our site, particularly the informational articles. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention, so becoming knowledgeable about preventative pet care is essential to the ongoing success of your animal’s health. If you have any questions, call 503-359-9548 or email us and we'll promptly get back to you.
