“Under Dr. Keith’s care, Sweetie’s heart murmur has gone from audible to not, bloodwork issues have been resolved, she now has the silkiest coat, and you can tell she is a happier dog…”

“When first considering going to Dr. Keith, I remember reading a review from someone who said they cried when they learned Dr. Keith was moving out of state. At the time, I thought it was sweet but a bit silly. Fast-forward through years of my four-legged angel, Sweetie, visiting Dr. Keith, and I can attest to the fact that I would do just the same and have cried purely out of gratitude for his presence in our lives. There is no one who has been more influential in my education of how to care for Sweetie and who has helped her live her best life more than Dr. Keith. Under his care, Sweetie’s heart murmur has gone from audible to not, tricky bloodwork issues have been resolved, she now has the silkiest coat, and honestly, you can just tell she is a happier dog.

The man is an immense source of Western and Eastern knowledge on truly every topic, which has been a game-changer for us in terms of supplementing the care your dog/cat would receive at the traditional vet’s office with expert but gentle guidance on nutrition, Chinese herbs, acupuncture, energy work, and how to walk through the inevitable aging process that challenges our animals and our own hearts. I feel so lucky that Dr. Keith is not only in my dog Sweetie’s life but mine too – he is my first email whenever any health blip happens, and he is the first to be able to help me see the bigger picture and calm my worries about my girl. Honestly, he provides care for us both. Connecting with Dr. Keith is one of the best things I have ever done for Sweetie and me, and we genuinely could not recommend him more.”

“Dr. Keith is one of the smartest and most compassionate vets I’ve ever worked with. Dr. Keith has a huge toolbox including Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbs, acupuncture, Western herbs, all to compliment his many years of experience as a “regular” western medicine veterinarian. I have found Dr. Keith to be always thinking outside the box to diagnose and treat my dogs successfully. My dogs have been his patients since he moved to our area about 10 years ago.”

His comprehensive approach to addressing cancer, facilitating internal healing, coupled with his genuine love for his patients and the warmth radiating from his soul, resonated with all of us…

After enduring years of conventional care that failed to resolve chronic issues in our three huskies, we were confronted with a devastating cancer diagnosis. Instinctively, I knew there had to be a deeper solution beyond the proposed amputation for our 7-year-old husky. This is when we met Dr. Keith. Our first consultation with Dr. Keith was nothing short of mind-blowing. His comprehensive approach to addressing cancer, facilitating internal healing, coupled with his genuine love for his patients and the warmth radiating from his soul, resonated with all of us. Our dogs, once terrified of vet visits, adore him. Dr. Keith’s indescribable and multifaceted healing approach, coupled with his profound understanding of each patient as an individual, has transformed our approach to wellness since our first consultation in 2018. Our pack is now gracefully aging, and our cancer survivor, at 13 years, is not just surviving but thriving—thanks to Dr. Keith’s care, wisdom, and compassion. I genuinely don’t think she would have made this amazing, natural recovery, or that she would still be here with us without Dr. Keith’s care. We believe every pet and their parent should have access to Dr. Keith’s expertise, and we are immensely grateful for having found him.

“We found Dr. Weingardt to be knowledgeable, thoughtful, professional, and personable. Oh, and the modern-day advancement of telehealth was greatly appreciated by said cats! They love being on camera.”

“It was with a sigh of relief that we found out Dr. Weingardt was available for telehealth appointments! As one of the few holistic veterinarians in the Portland area, he is obviously in demand, and his new-patient in-clinic appointments waitlisted. We’d heard about him by reputation, and had read the great articles he’s written for ThorneVet, an animal-specific supplement company. (But a good one!) But we were one of the many still on that waitlist. And we were in great need of a veterinarian who was willing and able to treat the patient as a whole, after some unexpected turn of events. My wife and I both see naturopathic doctors in addition to MDs, as well as other holistic practitioners so we know from experience what an invaluable contribution to the big picture an open-minded and well-rounded doctor can make. And he did not disappoint. He’s seen two of our cats so far, and has already been able to help us make some needed changes to their care. There is a LOT to know when caring for a companion animal—cats, especially. And when you don’t receive regular check-ins and guidance from someone looking at that full picture, you can sometimes end up with fundamental pieces missing. Such as, less-than-the-best cat food being served to them in high-quality, non-leaching, ergonomic-heighted/slanted bowls, let’s just say, for instance. (It wasn’t terrible. Just not up to speed with newer/better options that had come on the market since that decision had been made.) So, good guidance and timely recommendations from the holistic perspective have been very much appreciated. Not anything our allopathic veterinarian has ever even brought up with us, by the way.

Both appointments were very helpful, and we found Dr. Weingardt to be knowledgeable, thoughtful, professional, and personable. Oh, and the modern-day advancement of telehealth was greatly appreciated by said cats! They love being on camera. Don’t love being in the car. They got to go back to their respective sunbeams in record time. As for anyone concerned about the thoroughness of such an appointment, I can tell you that we answered an incredibly comprehensive patient intake, sent over more than a decade of medical records, and were even asked to fill out a follow-up questionnaire for specific supplement recommendations. And Dr. Weingardt had clearly prepped thoroughly for the appointments, as well. His guidance was spot-on, and we learned a lot. We now have an up-to-date list of personalized recommendations to work with moving forward. We have a go-to doctor to continue that work with. And we feel far more empowered to do an even better job of taking care of our cats, who mean the world to us. So glad this telehealth option was available, when we needed it most.”

“All the dogs and humans in my family love Dr. Keith! And I can’t imagine not having him on our “team”. Dr. K has been a guiding force in navigating care for all of my dogs, old and young. His thoughtfulness, knowledge and compassion are like no other vet I have known. A visit to see Dr. Keith is a calm and reassuring experience for all of us. Even dogs who normally tremble with anxiety when entering a vet office, walk in with tails wagging. And Dr. Keith will always take the time to talk, think, research and recommend a treatment plan. Thank you for being on our team and helping my dogs live long, healthy and happy lives!”

Jessica H. and Murphy

“I am incredibly thankful that Dr. Keith has been working with Murphy for nearly a decade now – he really knows her and her issues so well, and knows when something is a bit off…”

Continue Reading

“We have been bringing our dog, Murphy, a 12-year-old Newfoundland, to Dr. Keith for about 10 years now. One of the things I appreciate most about Dr. Keith is his calm, positive energy. Murphy just LOVES him. She is generally very reserved, but gets super excited to see him and just beams when she is in his office.

At each appointment, Dr. Keith takes the time to hear my observations and questions, then really listens to Murphy and spends time with her to see what she’s trying to tell him.

While Dr Keith definitely has his own unique approach, I very much appreciate that he wants to know what Murphy’s other care team members are doing – and his work compliments theirs. He also is a good sounding board when I am contemplating how to approach treatment for a particular issue – I never feel judgment from him, and he encourages me to make my own decisions about Murphy’s care, while also providing more info and context, and gently guiding me when necessary.

I love that he looks at the entire picture of Murphy, and works to support her entire body over the long term. Most other vets we work with only look at the symptom in front of them, and then offer a solution to suppress that symptom . . . usually a medication, which can often cause a cascade of other issues.

I am incredibly thankful that Dr. Keith has been working with Murphy for nearly a decade now – he really knows her and her issues so well, and knows when something is a bit off. He is a wealth of information, and I truly feel that he has her best interests at heart.

In the 10-ish years that we’ve been seeing him, we got another puppy – thankfully Finn has been very healthy so far, so we’re just doing the annual check-ins for now to make sure everything’s on track, but we look forward to consulting with Dr. Keith for his care as he ages.”

“Dr. Keith has been a Godsend in helping both of my cats in addressing their health issues. His approach is empathic and caring, based in extraordinary listening. Dr. Keith reads between the lines, goes beyond the feline symptoms to explore the environmental and human dynamics that may be contributing to each pet’s health. His holistic view creates more accurate diagnoses and treatments that have brought immediate relief and lasting improvement. His knowledge and experience are invaluable, as is his gift as a cat whisperer. He is the real deal!”

“While living in the PNW, Luna and I were fortunate to have found Dr. Keith. His care helped Luna and her digestive issues. I learned to make Luna’s food from scratch! Recently we moved to Reno, NV. Unfortunately I have not found a holistic vet here. There are locations that offer holistic care by vets trained to do things like laser, acupuncture, etc. But no holistic vets. I am more than thrilled to have access to his TeleHealth portal to continue receiving Dr. Keith’s care for my, now, senior canine.”

“His open-hearted presence weaves an ever-evolving tapestry of love, trust, and genuine care that Pikol and I both can lean into to feel deeply supported every step of the way…”

“I am extremely grateful that we found Dr. Keith during Pikol’s 13th year— the care that he has provided for both of us as we navigate the challenges of senior living has been the very best. Dr. Keith is a highly skilled and incredibly perceptive human who practices holistic medicine with integrity, sincerity, and passion. Drawing from his extensive background in critical care, Dr. Keith seamlessly integrates Western diagnostics with Eastern wisdom to tailor unique, individualized treatments that are best suited to Pikol’s current needs. His dedication to connecting with Pikol as a sacred being guides every interaction, while his open-hearted presence weaves an ever-evolving tapestry of love, trust, and genuine care that Pikol and I both can lean into to feel deeply supported every step of the way. Knowing that Dr. Keith is on our team puts our hearts at ease.”

“The way he looks at the complete animal, their environment, diet, upbringing etc to work through disease and other issues ensures that every animal receives the very best…”

“I first started seeing Dr. Keith when my dog, Bear, was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma after his spleen ruptured. The outlook for Bear’s lifespan was very poor- only 3-9 months. At our first appointment with Keith, he told me “I see miracles happen every day, why not Bear?” and for the next 42 months of Bear’s life, miracles happened, thanks to Keith. His holistic approach included changes in diet, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, Western medicine, and constant reassurance and compassionate understanding for Bear and me. Bear had always feared going to the vet, but after meeting Keith I would say “let’s go see Dr. Keith!” and he would jump in the car, impatiently run into the practice, and stare at Dr. Keith’s office door until it was time for him to go in. Keith now treats Bear’s little brother Gus, who loves him just as much, and our nervous orange cat, Bill Walton. The way he looks at the complete animal, their environment, diet, upbringing etc to work through disease and other issues ensures that every animal receives the very best, thoughtful, and complete care. I don’t know where we would be without Dr. Keith.”

“I have been a client of Dr. Keith’s for 7 years, and am so grateful to have found him! Dr. Keith’s skillset captures both holistic veterinary medicine & western veterinary medicine providing a level of care that is truly unique and extremely effective. I will be forever thankful for the excellent care and compassion Dr. Keith and his staff have shown to my dogs. Compassion has also been graciously shared with me as we managed complex medical conditions for my seniors Murray and Wren. Dr. Keith’s experience and consultation was crucial, helping me interpret Murray and Wren’s specialist results and make care decisions for oral melanoma and liver failure. Above and beyond medical care, Dr. Keith and his staff provide a welcoming, friendly environment that my dogs and I enjoy being a part of. The entire team is kind, professional, knowledgeable and… just… Absolutely Wonderful! Cannot thank you enough for all you do!”

“Dr Keith is hands down the best pet doctor we’ve ever had. He deeply cares about animals well being and their parents!
