Our Talented Veterinarians

Managing Veterinarian & Owner

Cynthia Lindsay, DVM

Dr. Cynthia (Mayo) Lindsay attended DePaul University in Chicago for undergraduate studies, then Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts, British West Indies for veterinary school. After completing her fourth clinical year at Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Lindsay moved to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. She began working at Columbia Veterinary Hospital in 2006 and purchased the hospital in 2012. Realizing the practice had outgrown the facility, Dr. Lindsay designed and built a new small animal and equine hospital on the Columbia River in 2019. Dr. Lindsay is passionate about providing excellent veterinary care to all patients and supporting their owners equally through times of wellness and difficulty. Although no longer practicing, Dr. Lindsay has embraced the role of Managing Veterinarian and thoroughly enjoys the daily challenges and joys that are presented.
Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her family and pursuing the many recreational activities the gorge has to offer. She can often be found riding her bike on the riverfront trail in The Dalles.

Kate Moeller, DVM

Dr. Kate Moeller is originally from the Chicago suburbs. She attended veterinary school at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and finished her clinical rotations at Oregon State University. Dr. Kate recently moved to the Columbia River Gorge to join the team at Columbia Veterinary Hospital to follow her passion for mixed animal medicine. She especially enjoys reproductive medicine and working with small ruminants and camelids.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Kate enjoys weightlifting, crafting, and spending time with her dog, Dexter, and cat, Seven.


Zoё Shelton, DVM

Dr. Zoё Shelton grew up in the Willamette Valley, amongst many animals. She graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelor of Science and attended veterinary school at Oregon State University. Dr. Zoё recently moved to the Columbia River Gorge to join the Columbia Veterinary Hospital and pursue her love of mixed animal rural practice. She especially enjoys both large and small animal medicine and working with small ruminants and cattle to help improve overall herd health.
