To all of my devoted clients at Columbia Veterinary Hospital (CVH):


It is with bittersweet tears I must share that I will no longer be working at CVH as of April 26th, 2018. As many of you know I commute over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge to arrive here- I have found an opportunity to practice medicine closer to home, to my family, with little commute and an opportunity to grow in my professional career as a veterinarian.


For the past 4 years I have called CVH my home. In that time, I have gotten married, become a mom to a beautiful baby girl, and grown as a veterinarian in so many ways. I have developed ever lasting friendships with my staff, colleagues, and clients. I would like everyone to know the depth of my gratitude in having you all in my life the past 4 years. I was welcomed with open arms here and never had a day that I felt out of place. CVH will always have a special place in my heart.


Please know that all of the doctors here at CVH are exceptional and our team is top of the line. There is no doubt that they will continue to provide compassionate care to your pets for many years to come. It has truly been my pleasure getting to know you all and your beautiful fur babies and thank you for allowing me the privilege of serving as your family pet doctor; you will all be dearly missed.


Warmest Regards,



Dr. Stacey Rutledge
