Dr. Erica Anderson


Veterinarian, Practice Owner - December 2012

Erica has worked as a vet for nearly 20 years in the Puget Sound area. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Pacific Lutheran University. She then completed her Masters in Animal Behavior from the University of Idaho and went on to graduate from WSU College of Veterinary Medicine.

She grew up in Walla Walla but also had the privilege to travel and live all over the world. She was raised following her dad, who was a botanist, to places like Thailand, Malaysia, Kenya, Japan, and many more. She thought she might be a wildlife veterinarian, but realized she is most happy helping dogs and cats and their people. Her areas of interest are skin, allergies, internal medicine, behavior and nutrition, but she really loves surgery as well!

From studying wildlife in South Africa, to working nightshifts as an emergency veterinarian, her devotion and compassion for animals shows through her everyday life. Dr A. lives in Seattleā€™s Beacon Hill neighborhood with her wife, Carlin, and their three cats, Benny, Guy and Monty, two dogs, Sister Smartypants and Travis the Whiz, and coop of chickens! Outside of work she enjoys dining around Seattle, gardening, junking, and traveling near and abroad.
