Dr. Cassandra Brown attended the University of Wisconsin and studied philosophy and wildlife ecology prior to veterinary school. While pursuing her veterinary degree, Dr. Brown realized internal medicine was her calling. Following veterinary school, Dr. Brown pursued a private practice internship and an emergency medicine year in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She returned to the Midwest for a three-year residency in small animal internal medicine at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She trained in all aspects of internal medicine and found interests in endocrinology and immune-mediated diseases. Dr. Brown moved to Portland, Oregon in 2004, and practiced at a large multi-specialty and emergency hospital until moving to the Kitsap Peninsula in 2021. While in Portland, in addition to her internal medicine practice, Dr. Brown developed and supervised the radioactive iodine therapy program for hyperthyroid cats, which is the gold-standard cure for this common feline condition. Dr. Brown is skilled at endoscopy of the gastrointestinal, respiratory, and urinary tracts. She has experience in the management of complex internal medicine cases, including immune-mediated conditions, diabetes mellitus, adrenal gland pathology, liver, kidney, and pancreatic disease, placement and use of feeding tubes, and bone marrow and hematologic disorders.
