Our HistoryOrchards Veterinary Clinic was established in 1979 by Dr. Weidenaar. At the young age of 14, Eric Atwell began working for Dr. Weidenaar, continuing through high school, summers and college breaks. In 1995, Dr. Eric returned to work as a full-time veterinarian at Orchards. Both Dr. Weidenaar and Dr. Atwell dedicated themselves to providing excellent, common sense veterinary care to all of their clients. In 2012, Dr. Weidenaar retired and Dr. Atwell purchased the practice. Our website is filled with valuable information about treatment options, advice for maintaining your pet's health, and a complete Pet Care Library with detailed resources about animals and their care needs. You also will find specifics about our practice, including office hours, driving directions, new client information and an introduction to our highly-trained staff. Giving your pet the best possible care is our first priority. We hope you will contact us with questions or to schedule an appointment.

    Dr. Audrey Spaeth D.V.M.

    Dr. Audrey has always loved animals and grew up with a string of family dogs in Seattle. She attended Reed College in Portland, OR for an Undergrad Degree in Biology. Later she attended Washington State University (Go Cougs!) for Veterinary School. She loves being back in the Northwest, with all the familiar and calming rain. Her favorite part of being a Veterinarian is all the different amazing clients she gets to meet who all love their animals. Outside of the clinic, one of her big passions is volunteering for the Girl Scouts, which she joined as a nine-year-old and never left. She also likes to knit, read books, and hike with her young-at-heart pitbull named Jack.

    Dr. Eric Atwell D.V.M.
    Dr. Eric realized his passion early in life. As a young teenager he began to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine and started working at Orchards Veterinary Clinic. After graduating from Washington State University with a degree in Animal Science, he attended Veterinary School at Mississippi State University. Dr. Eric's favorite part of being a veterinarian is seeing the bond and love people have with their pets and working with his talented staff. Dr. Eric enjoys meeting and developing friendships with his clients and their pets. As a Northwest Battle Buddies Board member, he supports the organization by taking care of therapy dogs in training that will be matched with war veterans suffering from PTSD.

What our clients say about us...

  • I dropped my dog off this morning for his dental cleaning crying my eyes out, but picked him up this evening grinning from ear to ear. Orchard Vet Clinic came highly recommended, and now I'm a supporter too! Thank you to your friendly and talented staff!

  • Love Dr Eric and staff 💕 I took my seven 8 week old puppies in for their first shots 🐾 The staff helped me carry in my wire crate and when done carry it out for me! My pups got lots of love from staff while getting nails trimmed and Dr Erik didn't make one of my puppies cry during shots! My brave pups had an awesome experience there!

  • We cannot say enough good things about this clinic. It may be busy (because it is so popular) but all you have to do is call ahead and they'll get you an appointment! Their prices are incredibly fair and everyone who works there is beyond lovely. They have absolutely gained us as clients for life!

    - Ashleigh C. -Yelp
  • I just want to thank you so much for the care you showed my cat during my first visit. I decided to use your office based on reviews and a grocery store recommendation and I'm so glad I did. As the reviews said it was busy, but with the care I received it's easy to see why your office is so busy. When I called in to make the appointment it was nice to hear that even when appointments aren't available you always accept walk ins.

  • Great vets and walk-ins accepted. Always busy!

    - Michele S. -Google
  • They where able to see us at short notice and give us the peace of mind that our kitty's foot wasn't broken and the Dr explained everything so we where at ease about the treatment our geriatric kitty needed. The clinic was extremely busy and I am so glad they fit us in.

    - Rhonda H. -Facebook
  • My mom and I have been taking our animals to Orchards for over 20 years. They are super busy, but to me that is a good sign. We moved to Washougal four years ago and still make the trek to bring our animals in to see Dr. Eric.

    - Brandey Y. -Facebook
  • I appreciate this little clinic so much. They have been so good to me and my dog Kirby. Im obviously not the only one who thinks this way as they are very busy but they always get Kirby in when we have emergencies and appointments by the next week. The prices are fair and the staff is great. Kirby has seen a few of the vets here but claim Dr. Judd to be his veterinary doctor of choice :) I highly recommend Orchards Veterinary Clinic.

  • This place is the ONLY place I will take my French Bulldogs to. Dr. Neilan Snowden is a amazing person in my book. My English Bulldog hated all men due to previous abuse. He loved Dr. Neilan. Dr. Neilan would sit on the floor and Jr would just about crawl in his lap he loved him. Love this place.
