Brooklyn Yard Veterinary Hospital is the vision of Dr. Alayson Phelps. For almost 10 years she served as medical director of VCA East Mill Plain Animal Hospital in Vancouver, Washington. While practicing in Vancouver, she garnered a large client following through referrals and the excellent online reputation of the hospital. Dr. Phelps is known for her caring and compassionate demeanor while offering a thorough and practical approach to veterinary care.

Dr. Phelps’s belief that education, collaboration, and communication are vital in the practice of veterinary medicine so clients can understand recommendations and be guided on making the best possible choices. Understanding leads to compliance and confident decision-making, which in turn results in the best possible outcomes for pet health.

We aim to break the mold of “one-size fits all” veterinary medicine and offer tailored veterinary care focusing on what is important to our clients and the health of their pet.

Dr. Phelps has a special interest in behavioral health and is committed to providing stress-free veterinary visits for both pets and their people. She has been Fear Free Certified since 2017. Additionally, Dr. Phelps has had extensive training in many areas of veterinary medicine including emergency medicine and acupuncture.

We are committed to providing a superior client experience and impeccable patient care. Brooklyn Yard Veterinary Hospital is proudly a woman owned business who welcomes and supports all of Portland’s diverse communities. We are excited to bring our vision of modern, comprehensive, and compassionate veterinary care to the Brooklyn neighborhood and surrounding communities!
