Dr. Rebecca (Turk) Cochran
Dr. Rebecca Cochran (formerly Turk), graduated from UC Santa Cruz in 2011 with a BS in Neuroscience and Behavior. Upon graduating and following her interests of medicine and animals, she took a position at a veterinary clinic in Southern California where she realized not just her life’s purpose; but affirmed that all puppies are the best puppies, (and kittens and rabbits etc.). She graduated from Oregon State College of Veterinary medicine, in 2017. During her time at OSU she volunteered for a program in Nicaragua where she met Dr Warbington and was offered a position to move to Central Oregon, work at TAH, and enjoy Bend's outdoor activities. She became certified in medical veterinary acupuncture from Curacore institute in 2017 for both large and small animals. Outside of the clinic she loves rock climbing, snowboarding, and painting puppy portraits. She lives with her husband Casey and their 3 legged pup Tulum.
Dr. Megan Kinnear
Dr. Megan Kinnear received her DVM from Washington State University in 2011. She began cultivating her dream life when she joined the Tumalo Animal Hospital team in 2013. Dr. Kinnear grew up in Issaquah, WA on a small family farm. At an early age, she began practicing animal care on her horses, geese, chickens, cats, dogs, and even on all of the injured robins. She attended undergraduate school at Santa Clara University, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Sociology and Anthropology. Traveling to Kenya, Australia, New Zealand, and Costa Rica, her fervor for creatures continued to grow.
Dr. Kinnear has a passion for the art of veterinary medicine and is dedicated to nurturing the human animal bond. She attended the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and became certified in small animal veterinary acupuncture. She enjoys incorporating Eastern Medicine into her daily Western practice. Her special interests include internal medicine, disease control, soft tissue surgery, and dentistry.
When Dr. Megan is not in the clinic, you can find her in the woods on her mountain bike, on her mountain bike, or on her mountain bike! When the trails are snow covered, you would likely still find her in the woods, but on her skis. Her life is made better by her rescued furbaby, June Bug and her four chickens Momma, Henrietta, Lil'Kim, and Rosa. She enjoys a good story, bourbon with a ginger cube, and planning her next adventure.
