Thomas Mackowiak – DVM/Practice Owner
As a charter member of the new breed of veterinarians, Dr. Mackowiak brings something to the table that few vets can match. From his attention to detail to his thoughts behind an individualized approach to pet care, he has started changing the standard of care by opening Heartfelt Veterinary Hospital.
A true man of the world, Dr. Mackowiak is at home in multiple languages, multiple cultures, and multiple disciplines. Having grown up in Germany, Thomas studied law in Chile, switched careers mid-stream, emigrated to Oregon to work on a veterinary research project, completed his studies at Oregon State University.
Thomas’ familiarity with so many varied cultures has given him an uncommon level of “emotional intelligence”, which allows him to see and sense things most other veterinarians miss. Combined with his professional expertise, Dr. Mackowiak combines these intangible skills to bring a multiplier effect to veterinary medicine, leading to a wonderfully constructive relationship between the Heartfelt team, your pet — and you.
A 2010 graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine, Oregon State University, Dr. Mackowiak maintains veterinary licenses in Washington and California as well as Oregon.
