Meet our Doctors

Alyson Gross, VMD

Staff Veterinarian

Emergency & Critical Care

I grew up in Norfolk, Virginia with my parents, brother, sister, and numerous pets. I have always loved animals and always knew that I wanted to become a veterinarian. I am so excited to be starting my career at Friendship Hospital for Animals.

In my free time I like to run, bake, read, play tennis, and do yoga. I also love spending time with my beautiful dog Nina. The summer is my favorite time of year as I really enjoy spending time outdoors in the sun. When I have time off work, I love to travel and explore other cultures.

Why Do You Work at Friendship?

I love working with such a large group of amazing doctors and technicians. It is a great learning environment and we are so lucky to have so many specialists under one roof.


I attended college at the University of Maryland where I received a bachelor’s of science in animal science. I then received my veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

Friendship provides state of the art, comprehensive services for our clients and patients. But, more than that, we provide a caring team who understand the unique human-animal bond. View Our Services
