Catherine M. Wallace, DVM

Catherine Wallace, DVM

What am I passionate about?

As an ambassador for both science and medicine, I firmly believe in maintaining open lines of communication with all my clients and their pets. I strive to provide compassionate, high quality medical care to my patients and will always be a strong advocate for your pet. Together I want to work with you to attain the best possible outcome for your family.

Five Things Dr. Wallace Would Like You To Know About Her:

1. Born and raised in Virginia Beach, I went to veterinary school in Scotland and fell in love with the country. I can still hear the highlands calling my name and my "second degree" I got there was in Scottish whisky!

2. Cooking and baking are family traditions and have become a stress outlet for me, much to the delight of everyone at Pet Care.

3. I am a huge geek and will attend comic or anime conventions when my schedule allows. I spend too much time in front of a screen on my days off.

4. While I thoroughly enjoy working with all types of animals, dogs will always hold the largest piece of my heart. I often use their seemingly endless enthusiasm and love as inspiration, as well as their ability to shake off stress (literally).

5. I was one of those kids who was excited to get a microscope for Christmas. I've always known science would be a major part of my life, and I'm thrilled that I've been able to combine this with my love of animals.


Virginia Beach native Catherine M. Wallace graduated from Floyd E. Kellam High School and Randolph-Macon College. She built a strong foundation in science, garnering degrees in biology, classical studies, and chemistry. She then earned a Master's of Biology degree and graduated knowing an awful lot about mosquitos in Virginia. Dr. Wallace spent quite a few years as a college adjunct professor and a veterinary assistant before moving to Scotland where she attended and graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, part of the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, Great Britain.
