Silver Creek Equine  Welcomes You

Silver Creek Equine PC is just the latest evolution of a commitment to serving the equine veterinary needs of the Willamette valley that began with Dr. Mike practicing out of his home in Shaw over 40 years ago.
Dr. Mike’s devotion to quality, practical, and accessible care has not changed.  Silver Creek Equine PC is now separate from the small animal portion of Silver Creek Animal Clinic to allow both operations to better focus on their specific interest areas.  You’ll notice that we now have a new phone number 503 967-4404 for horse related business, and if you visit us in person, our office is now located in the barn haul-in facility which shares the parking lot with Silver Creek Animal Clinic. 
Joining Dr. Mike will be Julie Hannan-Palmer, who began her career as his inside technician in 1995 and will help make this transition as seamless as possible, providing you the same great attention to your scheduling needs, addressing your requests for prescription refills, and acting as a conduit for messages to Dr. Mike.

Julie Hannan-Palmer, Practice Manager
I've been with Silver Creek Animal Clinic since 1996, first serving as a surgery assistant before becoming the primary equine technician, a role that I still have.  I love to travel, spend time with my family, and search for fine dining and great wine wherever I go. This is me with my dog Pyper lee piglet pretty puppy when she came in while still with her mother.  I'm a member of the Silverton Rotary Club, and currently serve as Past-President of the Silverton Chamber of Commerce.
