Dr. Burlingame (Dr. B as most know him) is the founder and original owner of Quil Ceda Veterinary Clinic. Dr. B hails from Akron Ohio and as a kid always had a menagerie of pets. Dr. B’s family has a small independent grocery store in Akron, Ohio. This is where he worked as a boy and the years of experience there taught him strong work habits and determination. With that determination Dr. B remembers asking his third grade teacher how to spell “Veterinarian”, so the seed was planted early on. He attended Ohio State University and received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. B has a professional passion for natural cancer therapy, the immune system and its role in chronic disease, longevity for pets and an adrenal gland disorder called Plechner Syndrome. He has had the privilege of owning 3 amazing dogs in his adult life, Pete, Mike and Murray. He has had one cat, named MC, for Mike’s Cat and currently cares for his mom’s dog, Corky. Corky is an 18 year old Pug mix that just keeps on truckin’. If Dr. B could be any animal he would be a Beaver, as they are persistent, extremely creative builders that work hard. Dr. B enjoys kayaking, visiting his home in Haines, Alaska and visiting his daughter and 2 young grandsons.
Dr. Lamb was born an animal lover. Growing up in Snohomish and Skagit Counties on a dairy farm gave ample opportunity to develop a passion for animals and healing the sick. As a youth she set her sights on a veterinary career. After receiving her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Colorado State University, Dr. Lamb was called back to the beauty of western Washington. After years of practice, she purchased Quil Ceda Veterinary Clinic with a vision of personalized care and exceptional customer service. Her professional passions are individual care, nutritional counseling and alternative therapies. She lives in Arlington with her wonderful husband and young daughter. As a family they enjoy tending to their farm animals, hiking and camping with their dogs and spending time with family and friends. If Dr. Lamb could be any animal she would be a honey bee, then she would have endless energy, be able to organize the hive and relish in the constant productivity.
