Meet Our Veterinarians
Dr. Aaron McDonald
Dr. McDonald was born and raised in the rural setting of Charlton, Massachusetts. It was here that he developed an interest and love for animals. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. After some years spent in education, biotechnology, and as a volunteer at the New England Aquarium he found his true calling; he applied and was accepted to Tufts University-Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.
