Please join me in welcoming Dr. Anna Plowman to the practice.  I have known Anna for a long time, we first met while I was in grad school at NCSU.  I am very pleased that Anna has joined me in offering the highest level of care possible for pets and families in our area.  I know she will capture the hearts of our families. She has the compassion and skill to serve families in the Triangle during the difficult time of loosing a pet.

Originally from England, Dr. Anna Plowman moved to the United States in 1993.  She graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor’s degree and went on to obtain her Masters in Animal Science from North Carolina State University.  She obtained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University, the Nation’s leading Veterinary program.
