Our Doctors

Dr. Cathy Ratcliff
Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Ratcliff joined our team in May 2023. She is looking forward to expanding care for exotic pets in the greater Spokane area. Dr. Ratcliff is a 2012 graduate from Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She has been practicing in Idaho and Washington since then, seeing everything from hamsters to horses. For the last few years, she has been focused on exotic pet medicine and surgery, and is available to help your nontraditional pet with whatever they may need. When Dr. Ratcliff is not working, she enjoys yoga, crossword puzzles and skiing. She shares her home with her husband Peter, two dogs, three cats, two guinea pigs, one parrot, and two draft horses.
