South Shore Equine Clinic and Diagnostic Center of Plympton is welcoming Dr. Caitlin Owen, the newest member of the clinic’s veterinary team.
Dr. Owen is an equine veterinarian with dual certifications.
She attended the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where she obtained a bachelors degree in animal science.
While at UMass, she studied abroad in the west of Ireland where she rode a variety of different horse breeds and fell in love with the country.
When it came time to choose a veterinary school, Europe was calling. Dr. Owen completed her veterinary degree at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in beautiful Edinburgh, Scotland. As a veterinary student, she was able to travel and learn from equine clinicians all over the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark.
South Shore Equine Clinic was one of the places visited as an extern and that experience clearly left a good impression! After graduation she was again drawn across the Atlantic to Ireland, where she completed an equine hospital internship in the heart of Thoroughbred racing country.
Growing up in Groton, Dr. Owen is excited to be working back home in Massachusetts at South Shore Equine Clinic.
Dr. Owen treats a wide scope of conditions including foals, imaging, colic, and a range of other emergency and critical care situations.
