Dr. Meagan Rock is a New England native who grew up in Massachusetts. As a high school student, Dr. Rock developed her love for all creatures great and small when she began working at her local animal shelter. She attended Tufts University for her undergraduate studies and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in philosophy in 2003.
After graduation, she resumed work with the MSPCA in Boston, MA and eventually became the Director of the Animal Care and Adoption Center there. For the next five years, Dr. Rock worked to improve the lives of homeless animals in her community while also setting her sights on veterinary school.
In 2010, Dr. Rock was accepted to and enrolled in the veterinary program at the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with honors in May 2014. Upon graduation, Dr. Rock completed a rigorous internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. This internship is one of the most prestigious in the country and Dr. Rock thrived in this busy environment. However, ever since her first dermatology course at Tufts, Dr. Rock knew that she wanted to devote her professional career to veterinary dermatology. She was thrilled when a residency opportunity came about in collaboration with the Animal Dermatology Clinic at Veterinary Healing Arts in East Greenwich, RI. Dr. Rock started this residency in July 2015 and is very happy to be able to stay in New England.
Away from work, Dr. Rock enjoys spending time on the water and in the mountains with her family and friends. She has a dog named Rose (a Boston Terrier) and a cat named Sprocket. And if you ask her if she is a cat or a dog person - she will never be able to decide!
