Meet the friendly doctors at Deschutes Animal Clinic!
Recently Dr.Fite has joined the staff at Deschutes Animal Clinic. She is one of our three full time vets here! On days where she is not performing surgery she is seeing multiple patients (both feline and canine). We are grateful to have her as one of our doctors.
Kristin Ripka, DVM - Attended Washington State University for both undergraduate work and veterinary medicine. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2009, and started working at Deschutes shortly thereafter. Forming strong, long-term bonds with her clients and their pets as a general practitioner has been her life-long dream.
Justin Ripka joined Deschutes Animal Clinic in the fall of 2017. He attended Washington State University for both his undergraduate studies as well as for his veterinary education. This is where he met and wooed his future wife (the other Dr. Ripka!) and he is very excited to be able to work with her now. In 2009 he received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and began to work in Chehalis shortly afterwards for over 8 years until he started with Deschutes Animal Clinic.
