Hay as an undergraduate in 1966. Drs. Hay and Hughes formed a partnership in 1974 and practiced together until 2001.

He received his BS in Biology from Portland State University in 1969, his MS in Biology in 1971 and graduated from Washington State University with his doctorate of veterinary medicine degree in 1974.

Dr. Kimberly Boothe with her dogs Zibbit and Mokus

Dr. Kimberly Boothe

Dr. Kimberly Boothe grew up primarily in Oklahoma. She graduated with a B.S. in Agricultural Economics in 1991 and received her DVM from Oklahoma State University in 1994. She has practiced as an associate veterinarian in small animal practices in St. Paul, Minnesota and Reno, Nevada before moving to Oregon in 2002. She has been at Canyon Pet Hospital since 2005. She has a special interest in dog behavior with an emphasis on preventive behavior modification, and strengthening the human-animal bond. When she is away from work, she enjoys playing dog agility with her dachshund, Zibbit (the zooming wonder wienie), becoming a complete “agility addict” after their first competition in October 2005. She is now bringing up her next generation agility partner with her “double dose of terror” mostly Jack Russell and Boston terrier mixed breed puppy, Mokus, who is sure to be a clever crowd pleaser.
