Dr. Rachel Reedy, DVM

Growing up in a small town in Southern Idaho, Dr. Rachel Reedy dreamed of a life in animal medicine. After obtaining her Bachelors of Science degree from Washington State University, she received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University of School of Veterinary Medicine.  In 2012, Dr. Reedy moved to the Coachella Valley, where she has made an impact on animal welfare throughout the valley.  

After obtaining her DVM, Dr. Reedy completed a rigorous Equine surgical and medicine internship at Sheridan Equine in Sheridan, Wyoming. Once her internship was completed, she went into mixed animal practice working on small animals and horses.  

​Dr. Reedy continues to work on horses, dogs, and cats, enjoying a practice where she can work with both large and small animals. Dr. Reedy offers a well-rounded background in most aspects of veterinary medicine and has a strong interest and advanced skillset in soft tissue surgery.  

Rachel shares her small farm - full of horses, dogs and cats, with her husband, Keith, They are both Boston terries fanatics, and you will often find Dr. Reedy's beloved "Spud" at work with her. In her spare time, you'll find Dr. Reedy riding her horse and competing in reined Cow Horse competitions. When she's not on her horse (or treating one!), she'll be visiting her family and friends or enjoying the great outdoors.

Dr. Peter Eddy, DVM

Dr. Peter Eddy grew up raising and caring for animals of all kinds, in central Massachusetts. He received a Bachelors of Science in Biology from Trinity college, then attended prestigious Tufts University where he attained his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

After graduating from vet school, Dr. Eddy was employed as an associate veterinarian at several small animal hospitals in the Boston area. Eventually he moved to California, and joined the first multi-doctor veterinary practice in San Francisco. Dr. Eddy and his husband moved to Long Beach, where owned and operated a very successful mobile medical/surgical/dental veterinary business serving the Long Beach and Orange County area.

Since Dr. Eddy and his husband Doyle moved to the Coachella Valley, he has practiced at several local hospitals and is currently happily practicing with Ridgeline Veterinary Clinic. He and Doyle enjoy traveling in their RV during the summer months, which includes their lovable desert adoptee pets Stella (chihuahua), and Karen (orange tabby cat).

When not traveling or working, you’ll find Peter playing competitive bridge, ping pong, or hiking.

Many clinics have loved having Dr. Eddy be apart of their team, and we are grateful to have him here with us (while he’s not enjoying the summer months traveling) at Ridgeline. He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and great friendship to our practice.

Dr. Leigh Kirk, DVM

Dr. Leigh Kirk has loved cats since she was a toddler and had wanted to become a veterinarian for almost as long. But life took her on an adventure through business:  entrepreneurship, sales, and marketing, and a decade of rescuing cats, until, David, her husband, finally convinced her to peruse her dream.

In 2022, Leigh graduated with her DVM from Colorado State University, to complement her BA from The George Washington University and MS in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.

Leigh and her husband share their home with seven feline family members, where they are treated as the gods that the ancient Egyptian’s originally recognized. Leigh has yet to meet a cat who does not deserve this distinction.
