Dr. Heather Spain is an East Bay native having grown up in El Cerrito. She earned her undergraduate degree from Barnard College at Columbia University in Neuroscience & Behavior in 2009, and completed her veterinary degree at UC Davis in 2014. Dr. Spain then completed a one-year rotating Medicine and Surgery   internship at the University of Pennsylvania followed by a three-year Diagnostic Imaging Residency at Tufts University. She became board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Radiology in 2018. Dr. Spain spent the year following her residency working as an associate radiologist at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston and an adjunct clinical instructor at Tufts University. She returned to the California coast in 2020 where she developed the Radiology Department at BluePearl Monterey. She is very excited to return home to the Bay Area and join the team at PESCM.

Dr. Spain enjoys all imaging modalities, but has a special interest in ultrasound, particularly of hepatobiliary and gastrointestinal disease. Though a steadfast “cat person” she loves working with all species including exotics and aquatics! In her time outside the clinic she enjoys hot yoga, racquetball, wine tasting, scary movies and spending time with family, especially her cat, Bellevedere.
