Rebecca Vogel, DVM
Background: I’m originally from New Hampshire, spending all my free time through local and national 4H. My many animals through the years helped me to learn about and be driven to veterinary medicine. I attended undergrad at UNH and
I graduated veterinary school from Cornell University. I have worked in equine medicine, dairy production, and was previously an associate veterinarian at mixed animal practice with beef cattle, horses, dogs, cats, as well as the occasional alpaca, pig, ferret and exotic animal in Wyoming before coming back to the Northeast. My family had dogs before children and brought me home to a life of love starting with Goldens, and raising service dogs in training for Canine Companions for Independence.
First pet: My first pets were a pair of wonderful golden retrievers, named
Dashawa and Willie. My goldens started taking care of me before I could take care of them. As their “puppy”, they taught me how to
safely handle pets, keep them happy and healthy, and together we had a best friend for life. My family had dogs before children
brought me home to a life of love starting with Goldens, and raising service dogs in training for Canine Companions for Independence
and progressing to a Labrador, and many more over the years.
Animals at home or in your life: I currently have a boxer mix that I adopted in
Vet school. She has loved our wonderful outdoor adventures, and new life changes, from school to the mountains west, to the north
shore of Massachusetts.
What we learn from animals: unconditional love, and honesty
