At a Glance

My Pets:

Seth - Beagle/Toy Poodle mix
Finnigan- Lhasa Apso
Persephone- Cat

Dr. Kiersten Forsyth joined VCA Northwest Veterinary Specialists in September 2020. Dr. Forsyth received her undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences with minors in Zoology and Chemistry from Oregon State University HBS; she also received her doctorate in veterinary medicine from Oregon State University. Following veterinary school, Dr. Forsyth completed a Small Animal Rotating Internship in Medicine and Surgery at Seattle Veterinary Specialists and a Cardiology Specialty Internship at Southwest Florida Veterinary Specialists.  

While Dr. Forsyth's interests in veterinary medicine are many and varied, her most "heartfelt" passion is for Cardiology. Her special interests in congestive heart failure and arrhythmias serve her patients very well who come into the emergency room at VCA Northwest! 

When relaxing off the job, Dr. Forsyth enjoys swimming, hiking, reading and painting in her native Pacific Northwest. She shares her home with several four-footed family members, including Seth, a Beagle-Toy Poodle mix, Finnigan, a Lhasa Apso, and Persephone, a feline with a fancy name and attitude to match.
