Stop by our state of the art hospital.
WellHaven Pet Health in Downtown Vancouver was built with every single detail meant to provide a calm and caring experience for your family. Our team is here to make every single visit a positive one.
Dr. Dauphin, Principal Doctor
Dr. Dauphin was raised in northern California, and graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Business Economics and Accounting, with a minor in Computer Science. She worked for 17 years in the Bay Area high-tech industry before returning to school for a second career in vet med. She graduated from UC Davis with a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine, and has worked in private practice and shelters in Las Vegas, southern California, and the Portland/Vancouver metro area. Her shelter clinic was an official externship site for Oregon State vet students, and she has been a Board member of the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon. She has performed over 16,000 spay/neuter surgeries. Dr. Dauphin loves dentistry, especially mandibular canine extractions (!), and really enjoys client interactions, helping pets feel better, and being part of a cohesive happy hospital team. In her spare time, she likes to bake and cook, and try out new recipes on her unsuspecting coworkers. She is proud to be a Bridge Life Master.

Cynthia, Practice Manager
Hi, I’m Cynthia and I am the Practice Manager at the Downtown Vancouver WellHaven. Coming to the doctor can be stressful to our pets and our families. My goal at WellHaven is to build a trusting relationship with each of our pet families. I hope to alleviate that stress by welcoming you into our Fear Free hospital with warmth and understanding. I first stepped into the field of vet care by answering a job ad in 1996. It read, “Do you love pets?” I said “Yes!” and the rest is history.
On my off time, I enjoy writing, listening to music and running. My Redbone -Treeing Walker Coonhound adopted me many years ago. He’s now 11 years old and is my bestest friend in the world. Thank you for getting to know me! Feel free to stop by our WellHaven to say hi. I look forward to getting to know all about your best friend!
Kiara, Veterinary Assistant
Hi my name is Kiara! I was born and raised in the PNW. Helping animals has always been a passion of mine. Since I can remember I have been trying to find and aid sick baby birds, mice, and any animal I could get my hands on. This passion led me to the vet field where I have been helping pets get better for 4.5 years now. In my free time I like to take my own dog out on walks, explore restaurants, and read! I am looking forward to meeting and getting to treat each and every one of your pets!
Lilly, Veterinary Assistant
Hi! I’m Lillian, Lilly for short, and I am a Veterinary Assistant at the Downtown Vancouver WellHaven. I have been in the field for about 3 years and I am currently on track to becoming a Certified Veterinary Assistant. I got into the veterinary field because I love being able to advocate for animals that are unable to do that for themselves! In my time off you’ll usually catch me hiking with my own fur baby, hanging out with friends, as well as constantly dying my hair (so you will never see me with the same color). Definitely stop by so I can have the opportunity to treat and love on your fur babies!
