Cory Gresham, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of Georgia


Dr. Cory Gresham graduated from the University Of Georgia College Of Veterinary Medicine in 2011.  While studying to become a veterinarian, he became interested in biomedical research and joined the Veterinary Medical Scientist Training Program at UGA.  In 2013, Cory completed a PhD in Genetic Toxicology at the University of Georgia.  His graduate research focused on the transmission of genetic damage (mutations in DNA) from parent to offspring.  He has worked at several small animal hospitals and shelters in Athens, GA before joining our team at VCA.  He lives with his wife, baby son, and two adopted dogs, Addy and Skittles.  In his spare time he enjoys running, woodworking, and exploring Georgia’s rivers by kayak.


"I chose a career in companion animal medicine because I am a lifelong animal-lover and am fascinated by the healing process.  As a child I tried to adopt every animal that wandered into my yard.  In high school I worked for the local veterinarian and was strongly influenced by his ability to talk to people about their animals.  I believe pets are members of the family and deserve compassionate, state-of-the-art care.  I enjoy the challenges and problem-solving that must be achieved for accurate diagnosis and successful treatment of illnesses in our pets.  I would like to one day combine my veterinary and medical research backgrounds into a career of pharmaceutical development."
