Chris Wickliffe, DVM
Dr. Wickliffe first became interested in horses at the age of 13 through the Boy Scouts of America at the Butte Creek Scout Ranch in Silverton, Oregon. This interest soon became a passion leading to his career path as an equine veterinarian.
Dr. Wickliffe earned Bachelor of Science degrees from Oregon State University in Economics (1992) and Colorado State University in Equine Science (1998). During this time, Dr. Wickliffe had the opportunity to become the first student of the Colorado State University Farrier Program and went on to be a teacher’s assistant in that program. This led to the development of a successful farrier business. Dr. Wickliffe completed his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University in 2002.
After earning his DVM, Dr. Wickliffe worked in 3 large surgical equine veterinary hospitals with the ultimate goal of owning an equine focused veterinary practice. In the fall of 2007, Dr. Wickliffe opened Cascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic, an ambulatory equine veterinary clinic based in Corvallis, OR. Cascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic is a 100% mobile practice designed exclusively for horses and focused on advanced equine dentistry, lameness, podiatry and preventative medicine.
