Diane Decker, Associate Veterinarian

DVM

Dr. Diane Decker was raised with 4 older brothers by animal-loving parents in rural upstate New York. They had many cats and dogs who were her best friends. She saw from a young age the power of a good veterinarian to help the lives of pets and their families. She was the first person to go to college in her family, graduating Summa Cum Laude from Colby College in Maine with a degree in Geology. She still loves rocks, but decided to pursue her heart's passion of helping animals. She graduated from Cornell University in 2002 where she was the leader of the Cornell Pet Loss Support Team for 3 years. She then completed a small animal internship at the Regional Veterinary Referral Center in Alexandria, Virginia.

Dr. Decker worked as a staff veterinarian at VCA 12 Mile Animal Hospital, then was offered the role of Medical Director. She held this position for 8 years, establishing and modeling standards for the highest level of care for her clients and patients. Dr. Decker is passionate about helping pets live their most comfortable and healthy lives. She believes that the bonds we share with our 4-legged family members are some of the most loving and treasured we have in our lives. She considers clients her partner in their pet's health and works with them to determine the best treatment course for the pet and the family. She believes in gentle veterinary care, and is committed to helping patients feel comfortable at the clinic. She shares a close and respectful relationship with many local specialists and consults with them regularly to provide the best care. Her special interests include preventive medicine, internal medicine, geriatric care, and feline medicine.

Dr. Decker lives in SW Portland with her husband and 5 cats. She enjoys anything sparkly, being warm, reading, hiking, college basketball (go Heels!), and cuddling with cats in the sun. She is excited to work at VCA Raleigh Hills Animal Hospital with staff and doctors dedicated to providing excellent care to patients and the people who love them.
