Elizabeth Herman, Medical Director

As a veterinarian, I feel it is an honor to partner with my clients not just in improving the quality of life of their pets, but also in caring for their family as a whole. Recognizing, celebrating and protecting the human animal bond is one of the best and most meaningful parts of my job.”

On Helping Pets at the End of their Life

Facing the end of a pet's life can be a challenging and sometimes confusing time. It can also be a time of shifting from focus on cure to focus on comfort and making the absolute best of the time left together. With special interest in improving end of life care, I work to partner with families in honoring the human animal bond and in making this special time as comfortable and meaningful as possible.

The Loves of My Life

I share my life with my husband Josh and our two active boys, Logan (age 4) and Ben (1). We also include our senior dog, Zoey, (a puggle), our young black Labrador, Gallant, our sweet cat, Riley, and our talkative and spunky cat, Lexie, as part of our family. When not working or running after my family, I enjoy running half marathons, baking, exploring the beautiful outdoors in the Pacific Northwest and travel.
