Dr. Richard Veeman

Dr. Richard Veeman enjoys working on all species of animals.  His love of animals began at an early age from growing up on a dairy farm.  His father, Pete, and brother Rod still own the family dairy in St. Paul, Oregon.

Dr. Veeman received two bachelors degrees from Oregon State University.  One in Animal Science and one in Microbiology.  In 1995 he received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from both Oregon State University and Washington State University.  

 

Upon graduating, he went to work for two years at Yelm Veterinary Hospital in Yelm, WA.  He then returned to the Willamette Valley and went to work for Newberg Veterinary Hospital.  Both jobs offered extensive experience working on large and small animals.

In 1999 Dr. Veeman started Veterinary Services of Oregon, a primarily mobile practice based in his hometown of St. Paul, Oregon.  In the last 20+ years it has since grown to a successful four-doctor practice.  With over 26 years of experience, Dr. Veeman is happy to help with any animals that you have.
