Dr. Cinda Scott is a native Oregonian who grew up on a 5 acre farm near Mt. Hood. Her veterinary path was set in motion as her childhood chores included caring for a variety of rescued pets, and farm animals. She went on to attend OSU and graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor’s in Biology with a minor in Fisheries. She then enjoyed the next 5 years as a Fisheries Biologist for the Bureau of Land Management, and volunteer firefighter and EMT in Central Oregon. Fortunately, she could not shake her lifelong dream to become a veterinarian and in 1999 her dream was achieved when she graduated from OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
Her areas of interest include reproduction, geriatric medicine, giant breed dogs in general (young and old). She was the show veterinarian for the National Mastiff Specialty in 2002 and has always owned giant breeds. She has volunteered for the Feral Cat Coalition to spay and neuter feral cats since 2000. In 2011, she attended 6 months of intensive training for veterinary acupuncture, and practices veterinary acupuncture for clients in the greater Portland area.
She also offers in-home visits for companion animals and horses, including animals with mobility behavioral issues, such as severe fear or anxiety in the clinic situation.
She spends her free time with her husband and two daughters on their 5 acre farm near Estacada. Their furry family include a Percheron-cross horse (PMU Rescue), 200 lb Wolfhound/Mastiff/Great Dane -mix, a failed Guide Dog Labrador retriever, 4 cats, 2 calves, 3 sheep, 6 chickens, 1 duck, plus a half acre vegetable garden. She admits her husband has the “green thumb” in the family and her job includes caring for the furry ones.
