Heather Carmody, DVM

Heather grew up in Huntington Beach, CA, where her family still lives. She attended veterinary school at UC Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine, and graduated in 2005. She fell in love with Northern California, decided to stay and joined Placerville Veterinary Clinic immediately after her graduation. In 2010, she became a partner in the practice and full owner in 2014.  She has a special interest in cats, but loves dogs as well. Heather lives in Placerville with her husband and son.  She has a German Shepherd Dog named Kaiser, two barn cats named Black Spy and Grey Spy, and some chickens.  Becoming a Veterinarian was Heather's childhood dream, and she is thrilled to have found a career she feels so passionate about.  In her free time she enjoys playing with her son, running, hiking, snowshoeing, caring for her pets and gardening.
