Education: Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine 1980
I am a 1980 graduate of Michigan State University School of Veterinary Medicine. My first year after graduation was spent at a mixed animal practice, Green Mountain Veterinary Hospital, in Manchester Center, VT. My next four years in practice were spent at the Mount Nittany Veterinary Hospital, also a mixed practice, in State College, PA. In 1985, DeWitt Animal Hospital, established in 1947, was purchased from Dr. James DeWitt. I had worked for Dr. DeWitt while attending the University of Rhode Island. When he decided to retire, he offered me the opportunity to return home to a well-respected and busy small animal practice. The practice was moved from North Attleboro to its present location in Plainville, Massachusetts in 1991. While I enjoyed traveling to the farms and helping the great hardworking farmers, I do not miss the late night, middle of winter calls. I have spent my career striving to be the best generalist I can be while meeting the challenges of running a small business and keeping up with an explosion of knowledge and a changing profession. I greatly value the long term relationship and trust many clients have honored me with.
I am licensed in MA and RI, hold USDA accreditation, and I am a member of the AVMA., MVMA., RIVMA. and the AAFP.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, travel and when the weather is good, getting out on my HARLEY. My oldest son, Craig, and my daughter, Sarah graduated from Veterinary School in the spring of 2013. Craig joined our team after earning his DVM degree. Sarah completed a one year internship before joining our team in July, 2014. Chris, Sarah’s twin brother, moved back from San Diego in 2013 to take a position as a software engineer for TURO (formerly Relay Rides) in Cambridge.
