Mark DePaolo, DVM grew up in Sherwood, Oregon and during a Boy Scout summer camp near Mt. Hood, fell in love with horses. His first horse, Shadow, was a rescue from a neglectful neighbor. That inspired Dr. Mark to pursue a career in veterinary medicine to help other horses and educate their owners. He earned his veterinary degrees from Oregon State University and Washington State University in 1994.
After working at Deer Park Veterinary Clinic and South Clackamas Veterinary Service, both mixed practice clinics, Dr. Mark decided to specialize in holistic equine health care. He furthered his education by learning equine chiropractic and acupuncture in order to open his own practice, Pacific Northwest Equine, Inc. He graduated from Colorado State University’s Acupuncture program in 2000.
Experience, innovation, and a holistic approach to equine performance have enabled Pacific Northwest Equine, Inc., to become a leader in preventative and therapeutic veterinary medicine. A commitment to exceptional personalized care partnered with a genuine passion for providing a complete health care program drive the practice. We strive to build long term relationships with clients based on integrity, willingness to help each client understand their horses' specific concerns, and using "common sense" approaches to equine health. Services provided include equine chiropractic, acupuncture, and nutrition evaluation.
Looking to broaden the awareness of holistic equine medicine, Dr. Mark moved to Horse Country U.S.A. in the summer of 2011. Using Pilot Point, Texas as his base of operations he opened a new veterinary practice, All Star Equine. To book an appointment with Dr. DePaolo, please call the scheduling line: 940-268-6460.
