Erik Knipprath

Grey Paw Print
Veterinarian Intern
Grey Paw Print
Please welcome Dr. Erik Knipprath! Dr. Knipprath is Californian, through and through. He grew up in Thousand Oaks and earned an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience/Neurobiology from UC San Diego. Dr. Knipprath joins NWVS after just graduating from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. His interests in veterinary medicine include Diagnostic Imaging and Neurology, and he is considering pursuing specialty training in one of these fields. What Dr. Knipprath loves most about being a veterinarian is getting the opportunity and privilege to meet new cats and dogs every day.

Speaking of cats and dogs, Dr. Knipprath is the proud pet father of a gorgeous Labrador mix, Dakota, and Doug, an avid, bird-watching cat. When not seeing patients in the hospital or at home with his furry children, you can find Dr. Knipprath and his girlfriend exploring the beautiful hiking trails in our area and checking out breweries around town. With so many trails and ales to be found, we're sure that Dr. Knipprath will enjoy what Portland and the Pacific Northwest have to offer!
