A Tradition of Caring

Columbia Veterinary Hospital was founded over 30 years ago by Dr. Larry Goza. Dr. Goza had a simple philosophy–put the well being of pets above the income of the clinic and treat customers like family.

He taught that philosophy to one of his eager young technicians who went on to earn her degrees at Oregon State University and come back to work along side Dr. Goza, caring for Astoria’s beloved animals for several years.

When Dr. Goza decided to retire, he knew that he had found the perfect couple to carry on what he had started–Dr. Kristin Zedwick, DVM and her husband, Matt agreed to purchase the clinic and carry on Dr. Goza’s philosophy. Since then, the Zedwick’s have added new additions to the facility and enhanced diagnostic technologies to make caring for your pets faster, easier and more comfortable.
