Carol Margolis, DVM, DACT

Education: Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine

Originally from East Setauket Long Island, Carol attended SUNY Stonybrook starting in 2004, for her undergraduate degree, leaving in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in General Biology. During high school and college, she became involved in dog breeding, and Collegiate Equestrian Competition. Thereafter she attended Ross University in the West Indies for her didactic veterinary training where she was also involved in the local community and multiple on campus clubs. Such activities she enjoyed included volunteering as an animal feeder in the local zoo, acting captain for a Ross Volleyball team, scuba diving club and PADI certification, and the occasional rainforest or beach hiking and camping with her adopted Island dogs.

In 2012, Carol graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, having spent her final clinical year at Tuft’s Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine. Shortly after graduation, Carol was working at a high volume private practice in a low-income area in the Bronx, NY where she spent her first two years out of school.

Between 2014 and 2016, Carol completed the AKC/Theriogenology Foundation sponsored Residency in Small Animal Theriogenology at the University of Pennsylvania. Since completing the residency and passing the Board exam, Carol has continued to work at the University of Pennsylvania as a Lecturer for Reproduction, Pediatrics, and Medical Genetics. Most recently lecturing to third year students and working in the clinics; training residents in Small Animal Theriogenology, and students in their final year of clinical training.

She is overjoyed at the prospect of returning to her home in Long Island, and finally bringing the specialty of small animal theriogenology to her hometown community.
