Dr. Rhet Schultz DVM

The most wonderful aspect of being a Veterinarian is that no day is ever the same. Each workday I experience different clients, patients, and situations. Along with working alongside a dedicated and loyal staff, this variety is why I look forward to going to work. My staff and I will always strive to provide superior patient care by utilizing advanced techniques and technology to keep our companions happy and healthy.

Cheyanne Waetjen

Licensed Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in Prineville, where animals have always found a way to be a large part of my lifestyle. I enjoy spending time with my husband and family. We have two great dogs, one witty paint horse, and a kitten that will keep you laughing. A few of my favorite activities are riding horses and snowmobiling. I was blessed with the opportunity to grow up within Prineville Veterinary Clinic. I value the leading edge technology and medicine we provide. We strive to continue learning and growing with veterinary medicine; while still maintaining a small town veterinarian atmosphere.


                            Michelle Gagermeier

                              Licensed Veterinary Technician

I was raised in Redmond, Oregon where I still live today.  I am married with two grown sons and I love to spend time with my family, camping, hunting and doing wood working projects.  I have always loved animals and share my home with my dog Nakita, a chinchilla, a bearded dragon, parakeets and a few fish tanks.  I decided to go to college after I raised my children and graduated in June of 2016 from the  Veterinary Technician  program.  I did a three week internship at Prineville Veterinary Clinic and fell in love with the atmosphere and wonderful staff.  They made me feel like I was part of the family and I was very excited when they asked me to become part of their amazing team!    


Justine Hendricks - Licensed Veterinary Technician

I was born and raised in Redmond, Oregon. I graduated from the COCC Veterinary Technician program in June of 2018.

On my free time you can find me hanging out with my family and corgis or competing on my horses at a local barrel race and rodeo.

Cassett (Cass)Yeager

   Veterinary Assistant

I was born and raised in the rocky mountains of Colorado, but recently transplanted to Prineville, Oregon. Animals have always found a way into my heart, being highly involved in raising 4-H show pigs and participating in western pleasure competitions. I was raised along side my five sisters, our yellow lab Wren, our Rhodesian Ridgeback Piper, and my horses Aspen and Drummer. When you see me in the office you can call me Cass! I am looking forward to meeting all of you and furthering my education in the Veterinary world. The cute puppy in the picture is our ranch dog Jasper he is clearly full of energy and had lots extra treats for modeling with me.
