A bit about Dr. Loomis
Dr. Stephanie Loomis spent years growing up watching her family’s veterinarians caring for four-legged family members as if they were their own, which inspired her to share her love of medicine with others.
She followed her passion to Washington State University and obtained her DVM in 2014. After graduating, she moved to North Miami Florida where she completed her internship in small animal medicine and surgery. After spending a year in Florida, Dr. Loomis returned to Washington where she completed her surgery residency at Summit Veterinary Referral Center. Dr. Loomis joined the Summit surgery team upon completion of her residency in the summer of 2018.
Dr. Loomis has a love for open-wound management that started early, when her neighbor’s dog suffered a large open wound. For months, she managed the wound daily with daily bandage changes on her neighbor’s kitchen counter. She’s fascinated by watching wounds go through the different stages of healing, and sees the power that routine care and time can have: many large wounds can heal with or without surgery, and pets can go on living happy, healthy, functional lives.
Dr. Loomis was born in the PNW but despite leaving it several times, she’s sure nothing beats the great outdoors here. Her personal pets include a sassy orange cat, a flock of chickens and ducks, and a herd of black Angus on her hobby farm. During her free time, Dr. Loomis can be found working on her hobby farm, hiking, biking, or doing anything adventurous outside.
