Dr. Marcy Rose

As a child, Dr. Marcy Rose recalls always having dogs as members of her family. In high school she sought out work at a mixed animal veterinary practice and then later, in college, worked on a dairy farm. These experiences stimulated her desire to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. She earned her bachelor's degree in animal science from the University of Vermont in 1981. She went on to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1985. In 1989 Dr Rose completed a three year residency and post doc Masters at the university of Wisconsin. We are proud to have Dr. Rose as part of our AESSJ veterinary team.

Dr. Rose has collected many enduring memories over the years. Her most memorable include treating an elephant that overindulged on monkey chow and delivering a live calf from a cow with uterine torsion. "Being a veterinarian allows me the opportunity to help alleviate pain and discomfort in animals, which is important since they can't help us find or diagnose their illnesses," she says. "It is a challenging and stimulating profession."

Her professional interests include surgery and emergency medicine. Dr. Rose is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association.

At home Dr. Rose cares for her own four dogs (Dennis, Ted, Freeta, and Honey Mustard) and two cats (Hannah and Henry). In her spare time she enjoys Olympic weightlifting, woodworking, gardening, hiking, and water sports.
