Brett T. Sharman, DVM

Graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. He relocated to Washington state after graduation and worked for a private veterinary practice in Southwest Washington before purchasing Woodland Veterinary Hospital in May 2002. Dr. Sharman and his team have grown the hospital from a one doctor practice to the blossoming four doctor hospital that it is now. He helped design and shape the building that we are in today with patient care and comfort at the forefront. His true passion is improving his patient’s quality of life and longevity through surgery.  He lives locally with his wife, their three dogs, three cats, and many chickens. When he is away from his hospital he enjoys working on his farm and its many construction projects, cooking, and traveling.

Tiffany L. Makowski, DVM


Joined the Woodland Veterinary Hospital team in 2020. She grew up in Eastern Michigan, dreaming of becoming a veterinarian while treating her stuffed animals! She graduated from Central Michigan University in December of 2010 with BS in Biomedical Sciences and University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in May of 2015. Following graduation, she moved to Maryland working at a mixed animal/ER practice for 5 years.  At this practice Dr. Makowski treated a range of species, as long as they didn’t have feathers or scales! The variety of species and their behaviors shaped her loving, gentle, bedside manner tailored to each patient. Her medical interests include: preventative care, breed advancing through responsible reproduction, pediatrics, soft tissue surgery, and neurology.

She was drawn to the beautiful Pacific Northwest by our abundance of outdoor activities and breathtaking beauty.  In her time away from the hospital she enjoys sharing her outdoor adventures with her much-loved shepherds, Knox and Kojac, no matter the weather.
