Dr. Kara Gendron graduated from Colorado State University in 2018 with a focus in small animal medicine and surgery. After graduating, she immediately headed west to the beautiful city of Portland with her two kitties, Sunny and Finn. Her goal is to help keep pets happy and healthy by educating clients on appropriate preventive medicine, and catching diseases early when they are easiest to treat. She believes pets are part of the family and enjoys helping people bond with their pets by better understanding their needs and care. In her free time, Dr. Gendron enjoys a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, camping, rock climbing, and kayaking. When not exploring the wonders of nature, Dr. Gendron loves to work on one of her numerous painting or crocheting projects.
