J. Scott Callahan, DVM
Dr. Callahan has been drawn to animals and their care from a very young age. At age eleven he began to pursue a career in veterinary medicine by volunteering at a neighborhood veterinary clinic after hockey practice. After high school graduation, he attended Michigan State University where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry and was on the MSU Rowing Team. He was then accepted into Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine – considered one of the premier veterinary institutions in the country – and received his doctorate degree in 1988.
Dr. Callahan began his career in Detroit, Michigan in 1988. After moving to Eugene in 1992 with his wife, Dr. Suzanne Leduc, who is also a veterinarian at Edgewood, he built his career in the Eugene/Springfield area at South Hills Veterinary Clinic for 13 years, then Cascade Animal Clinic for the next 14 years. He joined Edgewood Animal Clinic in 2019. Dr. Callahan sees dogs, cats, rabbits, pocket pets, and reptiles. He practices traditional veterinary medicine, is a skilled surgeon, and performs Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation.
Living on a mini farm, Dr. Callahan and his wife Sue share their home with three retrievers, eight cats, tropical fish, chickens, and bees. Dr. Callahan’s non-animal interests include sailing, triathlons, skiing, cycling, hiking, and camping, and sharing these experiences with their son as often as possible.
While his focus is on your pet, he is “dedicated to excellence, honestly answering your questions and helping you to understand how to honor your pets as special members of your family through excellent home care”.
