In August of 1958, he married the love of his life Beth, and they moved to Athens, GA, home of the University of Georgia, where Walter received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1961. That same year they moved to Kingstree and established the Cottingham Veterinary Hospital.

Walter was an active member of Williamsburg Presbyterian Church and had served as a deacon there. He was a member of the SC Association of Veterinarians, and, in 1984, he began a three year term on the Advisory Board for Foreign Animals and Poultry, reporting to The Secretary of Agriculture in Washington D.C. That same year he was recognized as Veterinarian of the Year by SCAV, and in 1986, served as president of SCAV. He was named Distinguised Veterinarian of the Year in 2010 by the SC Association of Veterinarians.

He was an IPTAY member, and for many years was the Williamsburg County Representative of that organization. He was a Life Member of the Clemson Alumni Association and a former member of the State Board of Veterinary Examiners. In 2013, Dr. Cottingham was the recipient of The Lifetime Achievement Award from The Williamsburg Hometown Chamber, and in June of 2016, he was the guest of honor at Williamsburg Regional Hospital Foundation’s first “Williamsburg County Dancing with the Stars”

Because of their belief that education is key to success, he and his wife Beth have established scholarships at Coker College, Williamsburg Technical College, Clemson University, and the University of Georgia Veterinary School.
