Dr. Gordon Pickering
Dr. Gordon is a native of Montana, where he grew up on a ranch that raised cattle, hogs, and hay. He fulfilled his pre-veterinary requirements during his three years at Montana State University in Bozeman. Gordon was then accepted to Colorado State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine, earning his DVM in 1987.
His first veterinary job, alongside his classmate and wife Dr. Julee Pickering, was in John Day, Oregon at a mixed animal practice, where they worked together for two years. He and Julee took over La Pine Animal Hospital in 1992 and have turned it into a successful, thriving practice.
