Harriet Blanton, DVM, Staff Veterinarian

DVM, Washington State University


Dr. Blanton has worked at VCA Wickaboag Animal Hospital since 2000.   Growing up as one of three siblings on a Kansas farm, Dr. Blanton always knew exactly what she wanted to be when she grew up: a veterinarian, of course! “Who could imagine a better job than playing with animals all day?” says Dr. Blanton, who received her D.V.M. degree from Washington State University in 1991.  Dr. Blanton is particularly interested in internal medicine, animal behavior and the human-animal bond.  In her free time, she stays active with snowshoeing, hiking, and scuba diving.  She also enjoys knitting, reading and cooking. She shares her home with her husband Tim (a geologist), Ollie (a young terrier mix); two cats (Josephina and Naomi J);  and Walter the cockatiel.
