Dr. Amanda Eldridge, DVM, CVA, is an Emergency Veterinarian at PASE. As a born and raised Philadelphia native, she is very excited to be able to give back to the people and animals of her city!
Amanda is a graduate of Philadelphia Central High School’s 272nd class. After high school, she began her undergraduate education at Penn State, receiving a B.S. in Animal Science. During her time at Penn State, she volunteered at a rehabilitation center for wildlife and exotics, worked at the Penn State Deer Pens, and had internships during the summers at the Philadelphia Zoo and Elmwood Park Zoo.
After graduating from Penn State, she moved to the beautiful island of Saint Kitts and Nevis to attend Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. There she was able to make her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian come true while also getting to experience a new country. During this time, she found an interest in integrative veterinary medicine as a way to expand options for her future patients. Alongside studying for her veterinary education, she became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (CVA) through CHI University. Amanda spent her clinical year of veterinary school at Louisiana State University. There she found a passion for the *pase* and challenge of emergency medicine.
Amanda understands the important role animals play in our lives. She loves to be able to help pet owners do the best for their animals to provide more happy days together with accessible veterinary care. Additionally, she has particular interest in surgery, animal behavior, and working with local rescue groups. When not working, she is typically spending her time outside with her Coconut Retriever fur-child, Tilly. She also loves to travel, cook, and spend time with family and friends
