Danielle Skloven, DVM
It is my mission as a veterinarian at Mt. Tabor Veterinary Care to support both the physical and emotional health of my patients at every stage of life. The special bond between humans and their animal companions is such a wonderful gift. Anyone who has known this bond has no doubt experienced a friendship that is unlike any other. For me, each day practicing medicine is an opportunity to give back to these incredible beings who have given me so much.
My goal as a clinician is to practice medicine with compassion and dignity, treating each of my patients as if they were part of my own family. I believe that much of my own personal success as a vet is thanks to my ability to empathize with my patients and clients. Understanding the technical nature of illness will always be critical and should not be discounted. But illness is not something out there in a textbook—rather it is happening to individual patients, each with their own unique circumstances. My goal is to formulate a treatment plan that considers each patient's and client's hopes, fears, and goals.

The Loves of My Life
My husband, David, and our Basset Hound mix Banjo are the loves of my life. My love for hounds was sparked by my first dog, Daphne. We honor her spirit daily with sniffing walks through the woods, seeking out breathtaking vistas in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, and enjoying a cozy campfire whenever we can.
Passions and Hobbies
When not in the clinic, you can find me digging in the garden, scouring antique stores for the perfect lamp, or traveling up and down the west coast to visit family. David and I are avid campers, hikers, and tasty food seekers. I also won't turn down a rainy day curled up on the sofa with Banjo by my side.
