McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital Welcomes Alyssa K Doering, DVM


We are thankful to have our roots in a beautiful part of the West. Dr. Jed McKinlay began the practice at his home in the Green Bluff area, north of Spokane, in 1993. Since then the practice has grown and flourished.
In 1999, Dr. Bob Peters joined the practice and a solid partnership in equine veterinary care formed. From our humble beginnings on Green Bluff, to our first facility and Reproduction Center in Colbert, to our new state of the art hospital in Newman Lake, our main focus has always been to provide the most comprehensive, compassionate care for horses possible. For the Love of Horses is not just our motto, but also our way of life. Each of our doctors, technicians, and staff are horse owners or have a deep and abiding love for horses. We invite you to read our bios on our website, We hope that you will come to know that when you trust your horses care to MPEH, your horse is being cared for by horsemen and women who dedicate their lives to one of God’s most beautiful creatures on earth, the Horse.

Alyssa K. Doering, DVM – Our New Equine Surgeon

Alyssa K Doering, DVM

Hello, I would like to introduce myself as the newest surgeon at MPEH. I am excited to join this incredible medical team. Growing up in Missoula I developed a passion for horses. As a barrel racer (amateur, collegiate, and professional levels) I understand the importance of keeping a performance horse up and running.
I will be bringing to the practice the skills I acquired from Oakridge Equine Hospital, the New Bolton Center at the University of Pennsylvania, and Texas A&M (where I completed my surgical residency).
Surgeries I will perform at MPEH include: Orthopedic surgeries, throat surgeries for performance horses, colic surgeries, laparoscopic techniques to remove ovaries and testicles, and other soft-tissue surgeries.
We are in the initial stages of developing a traveling sports medicine unit with the capability to scope upper airways, diagnose bleeders and provide all of the diagnostics and therapies necessary to keep performance horses doing their job.
I am looking forward to meeting you and assisting you with your horse’s surgical needs. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to say hello or if there is a veterinary need I can help you with.
Best regards,
Alyssa K. Doering, DVM Equine Surgeon
