At Seaside Pet Clinic we strive for a warm and friendly relationship with you and your pet. This page highlights the staff- our training, experience, and dedication to veterinary medicine.
Dr. Jason Gladney
Dr. Gladney graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. He is a Portland native and was serving in the United States Army, living in the heartland state of Nebraska, before coming back to his home in the Pacific Northwest in 2016.
Dr. Gladney is owned by a "happy" bull terrier named very accurately, Happy. He also has two rambunctious felines, Jem & Tuesday.
The thing he loves most about working at Seaside Pet Clinic is not only being able to fulfill his passion of helping animals, but the client interaction. Dr. Gladney loves building relationships with his clients and getting to know all the wonderful people along the Oregon Coast.
When he isn't at the clinic, Dr. G enjoys rooting for the Green Bay Packers, fishing, and Endurocross dirt bike racing. He's also a big fan of Star Wars and enjoys the occasional root beer float.
You would be surprised to know that Dr. Gladney is an excellent knitter!
