Dr. Caitlin Bell
Dr. Caitlin M. Bell earned her Bachelor of Science degree from East Carolina University in 2011, and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from Ross University in 2016. Following her degree, she attended a small rotating internship in Long Island for one year, and moved on to work in Emergency Medicine in Fairfield, NJ. During her undergraduate studies she earned a research grant for her research on antimicrobial resistance in the environment, and was part of the Biological Honor Society, and Golden Key Honor Society.
Dr. Bell did not think she would be able to handle some of the heartbreaking situations that go along with being a veterinarian, so she was actually headed towards a career in human medicine. Dr. Bell shadowed multiple doctors and could not find the right fit. She then went and shadowed and worked with her family veterinarian and knew immediately that veterinary medicine was the right place for her. Dr. Bell says the most satisfying thing about being a veterinarian is, “being able to be an advocate for the health and wellbeing of animals. Animals have always added so much to my life, and I find it very rewarding to work on their behalf every day.”
Dr. Bell’s professional interests include Toxicology, Ultrasound, and Pain Management. She is a member of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS).
Her hobbies include: wine (She has a level 1 certification as a sommelier), travel (she has plans for a safari to Kenya and Tanzania in November 2019) and scuba diving. She currently lives with 2 dogs- Brooks, a golden retriever, and Frankie, a French bulldog (both adopted).
