About Forest Valley Veterinary Clinic

Forest Valley Veterinary Clinic has been here for over 30 years.  Dr. Bill Steinkruger helped establish the hospital and worked with the animals of Cottage Grove until he passed away in 2009.  Drs. Bruce Behrends, DuWayne Penfold, Ryan Frome and Paul Schiffgens now own and operate the hospital.  They have worked hard to maintain the atmosphere that ‘Dr Bill’ created and continue to improve our ability to serve the veterinary needs of this community.

We appreciate your support  and promise to remain a locally owned hospital committed to the care of your animals.  The Veneta Veterinary Hospital is also part of our group and allows us to offer access to a broader selection of diagnostic and treatment options.  Our Echo Hollow Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care facility, opened in 2017, has extended the hours we can serve you.  These practices share the same philosophy of high quality care, delivered on a very personal level, and we strive to keep veterinary care affordable when and where it is needed most.
