Meet Our Team

Dr. Kira MacKinnon

Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. Mac graduated from the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. Originally from Las Vegas, in June 2015 she moved from Arizona to the Colville area with her husband, 6 dogs, and 1 cat. When Dr. Mac and her husband came to Colville to house hunt their real estate agent stated that there was a vacant vet clinic 10 miles north of town. We viewed the location and Dr. MacKinnon could see the potential with the building. After 7 months of renovation, Echo Ridge Veterinary Hospital was ready to reopen. The clinic has the same name & building, but a new owner, business, and equipment. Dr. Mac enjoys practicing general veterinary medicine and surgery, especially with a dedicated and caring team who are always looking to improve their clinical knowledge and skills.
