Heather Edginton, DVM, Diplomate ACVD

Dr. Heather Edginton is a board-certified veterinary Dermatologist.

Born and raised in Pasadena, California, Dr. Edginton was originally a Psychology major and obtained her Psychology Degree from Cal State Long Beach.

However, something was missing in her life and she couldn’t shake the feeling that she needed to work with animals. Dr. Edginton decided to change her major, attending Cornell University to study veterinary medicine. She earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2011 where she discovered her passion for veterinary dermatology.

Dr. Edginton began her residency at Cornell University to work on getting her board-certification in dermatology, which she completed in 2014. Her specialty interests include management of allergic skin disease, immune-mediated/autoimmune skin diseases, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Dr. Edginton is excited to be in the Pacific Northwest as she loves the rain and season changes. When not practicing veterinary Dermatology and walking in the rain, she also enjoys spending time with her 2 cats, Merle and Diana, who have been with her throughout veterinary school. She also has a love for the arts and has earned certificates in interior design, Feng Shui and baking. She is currently working on a personal style certification as well.
