Dr. Amy Cottrille is a Washington state native, spending half her childhood in Eastern Washington in a small farming and ranching community, and the other half in the Seattle suburbs. She grew up in a family that loved animals, and has wanted to be a veterinarian since the age of six. She was greatly encouraged and supported to follow that path by her immediate and extended family.

After graduating from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998, she practiced at Rose Hill Animal Hospital in Kirkland, WA, then as a relief (substitute) veterinarian in the greater eastside area. She has always been intrigued with the idea of house calls after spending a day with a house call veterinarian in Sequim as a senior veterinary student. The ability to spend more time with the patient in a relaxed setting made a lot of sense, both for the comfort of the patient and their owner, and for the ability to have a more comprehensive exam in the patient’s natural setting.

Dr. Amy lives in the Sammamish area with her husband of 28 years. They enjoy spending time with their three children and grandchild, and take advantage of many outdoor activities available in our area such as hiking, boating and camping. They regularly foster kittens and cats for MEOW Cat Rescue in Kirkland. Dr. Amy enjoys participating in recreational running and triathlon races, sewing and gardening. Their family has several spoiled pets, including three cats, one dog, and a very temperamental rabbit.
