Meet our Vets

Dr. Jeffrey Judkins relocated to the Rogue Valley from Portland, Oregon, in search of sun, a slower pace and  land for his dogs to run on. “Dr. J” got his veterinary degree from Louisiana State University in 1984, and has practiced in Austin, Texas, and Fairbanks, Alaska, before establishing Hawthorne Veterinary Clinic, the first holistic veterinary hospital in Portland, Oregon, in 1995.
