Dr. Carly McDonald grew up in Southern Ontario, Canada. She received her Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Biology from the University of Guelph. In 2015, she began her veterinary school education at St. George’s University. She completed her year of clinical training at Cornell University and has called the Ithaca region home ever since.
From the moment Dr. McDonald could talk as a very young child, she told everyone she met that she would one day be a veterinarian, and she has worked in the veterinary field since she was 16. When she isn’t at the clinic, Dr. McDonald enjoys outdoor activities including hiking, jetskiing, snowmobiling, and motocross with her significant other and their pitbull-mix Ryder.
