About Crooked Tails Veterinary Clinic:
We are a companion animal veterinary clinic providing a full range of affordable vet services to Prineville, Redmond, Bend and the surrounding areas.
We’re here for the animals AND the owners.
We love animals and we want to see communities full of happy, healthy pets. We believe the best way to do this is to provide a high-quality veterinary service that is affordable to anyone, so no pet needs to go uncared for.
Crooked Tails is a small doctor-owned clinic that provides a full range of services for your pets.
We have partnered with SNIP (Spay Neuter Investment Project) to provide a feral cat spay/neuter and vaccine service available to residents of Crook County. By inhibiting feral animals’ ability to breed, we can reduce unwanted and un-cared for animals in our community dramatically. Feral cats can be dropped off in traps Monday thru Friday mornings between 8:00 and 9:00 am and picked up the same afternoon. They will be spayed or neutered and vaccinated for free. All feral cats will also be ear-tipped so it is possible to tell if they have already been desexed without reanesthetizing them.
Full service means that we can provide all the basic services your pet may need. This includes radiology, vaccinations, microchipping and more.
We believe that everyone should be able to afford care for their animals. We want to keep our community’s pets well-cared for and healthy, which in turn means less abandoned and feral animals.
Small and Personal
We are a small clinic; we currently are just one doctor and one certified tech. This means you get personal, dedicated care and get to know the people caring for your animal.
We see emergencies during business hours, M-F 8:00-5:30pm. Outside of those hours please call the Animal Emergency Center in Bend at (541) 385-9110
Complete care for your pets
At Crooked Tails we offer a full range of veterinary services for your dogs and cats, including spays, neuters, dentals, general surgery, mass removals, vaccination, wellness exams, and more. We also just purchased a brand new digital x-ray machine which should be arriving within the next few weeks!
In addition to our regular veterinary services we offer a free feral cat spay/neuter and vaccination program in conjunction with the Spay Neuter Investment Project (SNIP) of Prineville. If you have trapped a feral cat you can drop it off at the clinic M-F between 8am and 9am, and pick it up that same evening.
Dr. Bethany Holman BVSc
Bethany grew up in Salem, OR before attending Oregon State University for her undergraduate degree. Originally planning to become a human doc she decided at the last minute (after successfully suffering through the MCAT prep & test) that her real passion was in animal health. She then moved to beautiful New Zealand with her husband to attend veterinary school at Massey University in Palmerston North. Since moving back she has worked at a low-cost veterinary clinic in Southern Oregon until recently moving to Prineville to start up the Crooked Tails clinic.
In her spare time Bethany loves to get outside hiking, mountain biking, climbing, or anything else in the mountains. She has one cat and one dog – a 90lb lab mix named Makalu (Makalu is a mountain in Nepal which means ‘Big Black’).
