VCA Blackstone Valley Animal Hospital

Amanda Cronin, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Tufts University


Amanda Cronin, DVM has lived in the Blackstone Valley for over 10 years.  She received her B.S. in Animal Science from the University of Massachusetts in 1998 and graduated from the Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006.  Her clinical interest include preventative care, internal medicine and geriatric care.  Dr. Cronin has also spent time teaching Anatomy and Physiology at local colleges.  She recently worked as a full time associate at VCA Wickabog and has decided to join us because it is closer to home.  When she is not at work she spends her time keeping her two cats, Lionel and Gareth, off the counter and out of the trash.  Her husband, Iain, works in computer technology and, as a result, finds herding cats to be a restful interlude between projects.
