The Westside Pet Hospital Team

Dr. Scott D. Shaw, DVM, CVA

 

Dr. Shaw has been practicing veterinary medicine for over thirty-two years. He has treated the gamut of animals including racehorses, cattle, sheep, goats, ostriches, dogs, cats, birds, wildlife and pocket pets. His interest in being a veterinarian arose at an early age from caring for his brood of farm animals. Since graduation, he has continued to expand his knowledge by attending numerous continuing education courses. During the first part of his career he attended classes on internal medicine, advanced dentistry and orthopedic surgical techniques. For the past fifteen years he has expanded his education into holistic medicine. He finished the professional veterinary homeopathy course in 2000. He became a certified veterinary acupuncturist in 2004. Since then he has taken many classes on advanced acupuncture techniques, Chinese herbal medicine and food therapy. He feels the blending of western veterinary and eastern veterinary medicine creates a balance for optimum patient care. Dr. Shaw’s family includes his wife Kristin, twin sons Nathan and Douglas, Annie the cat and the newest addition, Biggs, a Welsh Corgi.

Dr. Shaw is very involved with the community. He is president of the Central Oregon Veterinary Medical Association and is on the advisory board for the veterinary technician program at COCC. He is an avid mountain bike rider and is a trail crew leader for the Central Oregon Trail Association. He also enjoys skiing, snow boarding, and coaching Little League baseball.

Kiley Conery, CVT

 

Kiley Conery moved to Bend, Oregon three years ago to enter the 2014-2016 Veterinary Technician Program at Central Oregon Community College. Kiley was from the small town of Fossil, Oregon with the population of only 450. She was excited to move to the big city to start her career.
Kiley has wanted to be a veterinary technician since she could remember. She would wrap her dog in toilet paper, pretending she had broken limbs and then would bring her everything to make sure she was okay. She was always okay and would put up with Kiley anyway.
Now Kiley has two handsome boys, both with four legs: Mickey Mouse, a Boxer, and Sammy, a yellow Labrador. She loves her dogs so much and cannot wait to adopt an animal from a shelter in the future.
Kiley loves that every time she gets up in the morning she gets to help the animals of this wonderful community while working along with an amazing team. Kiley is hoping to further herself in emergency medicine and work at the emergency clinic once she is settled in here at Westside Pet Hospital.

Katie became interested in small animal medicine during her senior year. She began as a kennel assistant and worked her way up to being a veterinary assistant.
Katie has loved animals ever since she could remember. She has two dogs: Mason, a handsome Staffordshire terrier and O’hana, a very adorable French bulldog. Katie and her fiancé Chase really enjoy spending their time outdoors, fishing, hiking, camping, and riding bikes.
