Dr. Debora Wallingford

Veterinarian

When Dr. Wallingford was younger, her parents told her “You can do anything you set your mind to.” She took heed to their words, and set her mind towards helping save the lives of animals. Today, she’s a veterinarian at the Cat and Dog Clinic of Bellevue, so it’s safe to say that she has fulfilled her dreams!

Dr. Wallingford vividly remembers reading the book “The Incredible Journey” during her youth. She was absolutely mesmerized by the resilience, courage, intelligence and dedication that animals possess. The fascinating bond between humans and animals is one that she decided to center her life around.

While growing up in Ralson, NE Dr. Wallingford was in a household that had several pets. She enjoyed being around animals so much that she began volunteering at the local veterinary clinic all throughout high school. 

She attended and graduated from Kansas State University, and then at the suggestion of her aunt, ended up venturing to the Pacific Northwest to pursue her career. Eventually Dr. Wallingford found herself in Seattle and realized Cat and Dog Clinic of Bellevue was the perfect place for her!

Dentistry is the favorite part of Dr. Wallingford’s career. Knowing that she’s helping improve the quality of life and health for a pet is a gratifying feeling. Another aspect of the job that she loves is helping mentor students who show an interest in veterinary medicine.

In her free time, Dr. Wallingford enjoys spending time with her husband and two college-aged daughters. Her pets include a rescue greyhound, a poodle named Hazel and 2 adorable cats. You might catch her playing the piano, singing, traveling, or simply curled up on the couch reading a good book!
