Dr. Eric Sutten was born in McCleary, Washington, and raised in Elma, Washington. Being raised in rural Washington allowed significant exposure to a variety of different animals. His family has owned cattle, swine, poultry, dogs, and cats. It is no surprise that by eight years of age he wanted to be a veterinarian.
After high school, Dr. Sutten moved to Ellensburg, WA where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Central Washington University. After graduating in 2006 he moved to Pullman, where he earned his Master of Science in Veterinary Science at Washington State University. During his three-year graduate program, Dr. Sutten focused on immunology and infectious disease.
Dr. Sutten obtained his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University in 2013. During his veterinary studies, he focused on mixed animal medicine. Following graduation, Dr. Sutten worked for three years as a mixed animal practitioner in Moses Lake, WA.
One of Dr. Sutten's professional interests is internal medicine. More specifically he enjoys infectious disease, immunology, and endocrinopathies. He also enjoys soft tissue surgery and hopes to build on his experience in orthopedic surgery.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Sutten spends time with his lovely wife Kathleen (who is also a veterinarian) and their two dogs: Dixie and Walker. He also enjoys spending time outdoors: fishing, hiking, camping, and furthering his understanding of the biological world.
Dr. Sutten is excited to have purchased a home in Kingston and looks forward to developing and nourishing a relationship with the community in and outside the veterinary practice.
