VCA Misener-Holley Animal Hospital

Dr. Megan G. FitzGerald, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine


Dr. FitzGerald grew up in Edgewater and used to take her pets to Misener-Holley as a child. She was raised surrounded by a variety of pets from cats and dogs to iguanas, box turtles, Guinea pigs, hamsters and horses. As a teen and young adult she actively competed in equestrian events and gained experience working as a small animal veterinary assistant and volunteering at an equine hospital and a wildlife rehabilitation center. She received her DVM from Ross University in the Caribbean and completed her clinical year at Purdue University. After finishing a year long internship at a busy equine surgical referral center in Southern California, Dr. FitzGerald moved back home to Illinois and became an associate with a local small animal hospital, helping to spay and neuter strays for the humane society on weekends. Fulfilling a long held dream to practice in another country, Dr. FitzGerald spent several months working as a mixed animal practitioner in Melbourne, Australia. Upon returning to Illinois she joined VCA Misener-Holley and is excited to be practicing in her old neighborhood.

Dr. FitzGerald enjoys reading, cooking, working out and volunteering at the humane society in her free time. Both her dog, Mango, and cat, Dublin, are enjoying their recent move to Chicago.
