Our Staff


Boss Lady/ Clinic Cat: Ribbons

Previously known as  "Princess Buttercup," I joined the APAC family in 2004 when my family could not afford my ribbon-ectomy. After our doctors removed the "linear foreign object," I have been ruling the clinic ever since!  I enjoy greeting clients in the lobby and receiving treats. I really enjoy sleepovers at our technicians' houses, but I always come back to work to keep everyone in line!



Please take a moment to "meet" our wonderful Doctors!

Cary Heyward, DVM

I am a 1986 graduate of University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. My initial 3 years of practice was with racing standard bred horses, beef cattle, hogs and companion animals in rural Georgia. I was originally hired as an associate veterinarian at Amazon Park Animal Clinic in the fall of 1991. During my initial 8 years at APAC I developed strong interests in surgery and diagnostic ultrasound.

Now as managing owner of the practice I am able to apply this advanced technology to our patients.

Cameron Jones, DVM

I graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio in 1991. In 1995 I earned my degree in Veterinary medicine from Ohio State University and moved to Oregon. I accepted a position in Veneta as a mixed-animal veterinarian.

After 4 ½ years, I decided enough horses had kicked me so I joined the APAC family in January 2000. I enjoy all aspects of medicine and surgery, but clinical interests also include dermatology and behavioral medicine.

Maki, Barbara, DVM

I graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1991. After graduation, I worked for 14 years as a small animal veterinarian in the Philadelphia area.

Family and lifestyle considerations drew me to Eugene, and I was pleased to join the staff of Amazon Park Animal Clinic the summer of 2005.

While I like all facets of small animal practice, I especially enjoy the challenge of meeting the needs of chronically ill and geriatric patients and their owners. Educating owners about their pet's medical conditions is an integral and satisfying part of my profession, and I love using my knowledge and skills to help owners make informed decisions regarding their pet's care.

My human family includes my husband, Don, and daughters, Martha and Rachel. We share our home with three cats, each of whom started out  life as an orphaned bottle baby", and with our newest adoptee, a rescued eight year old Miniature Pinscher.
