Kris Hallden, Associate Veterinarian

A UC Davis 1993 DVM graduate, Dr. Kris Hallden joined the Salem practice in 2000, relocating from Klamath Falls, Oregon. In addition to general small animal practice she was active in wildlife rehabilitation, particularly care for injured hawks, owls and eagles. Cornell University graduated her with Honors in Animal Science. She grew up in the Los Angeles suburbs.
Dr. Hallden loves general practice. Supporting the human €“animal bond is ultimately what her career is all about. Dr. Hallden engages in relationship based medicine, involving the family in medical decision making. Integrating western medicine and acupuncture, palliative and preventative care are among her professional interests. She enjoys dentistry and soft tissue surgery. Her family includes husband Marc, daughters Rachel and Megan, Kelev the Golden Retriever, Moe & Joe the remarkably food motivated brotherhood of cats, and Henry the corn snake. Kris appreciates living in an area surrounded by outdoor access, wonderful food, wine and fine microbrews. Outside of VCA you may find her watching Megan's soccer games, enjoying Rachel's latest baking experiment or sipping an IPA with Marc.
