Dr. Beth Scheenstra
Dr. Beth is a Washington State University graduate and a Skagit Valley local who has been practicing locally for over a decade. Working exclusively with small animal now she enjoys many aspects of veterinary medicine.
Preventive medicine is the cornerstone to her guiding principles in practice. If she can prevent, slow, treat any disease process allowing a pet to live a longer healthier life than she feels she has done her best medicine. Because of this desire Dr. Beth takes special interest in geriatric medicine, long term pain control, oncology and general preventative care.
When Dr. Beth is not practicing you will find her running with her dogs, or her two daughters. Dr. Beth is an active alumnus with her husband who works for WSU-Extension in Mt. Vernon and they visit Pullman often to cheer for their favorite college sports.

Dr. Elena originally thought she wanted to be anequine practitioner, but ultimately she found small animal medicine much more interesting! She particularly enjoys cardiology and nutrition.
