Orthopedic & Specialty Surgery

Rebecca Beardall

I am originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario and then went on to complete my veterinary degree at the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) in Athens, Georgia. After vet school, I completed a one year small animal rotating internship at Cornell University Hospital for Animals in Ithaca, New York. I have two dogs (Archie and Winnie) and five cats (Hank, Henry, Rosie, Frannie and Tiny Tim). They are all rescued and yes, I somehow manage to keep my house clean with this small zoo of mine! In my spare time, I love to work out (particularly running outside) and to bake!

Clinical Areas of Interest

Small Animal Surgery (both Soft Tissue and Orthopedic Surgery)

Why Did You Work at Friendship?

I have heard nothing but positive things about Friendship from my fellow colleagues and clients.  I believe this internship will provide me with excellent experiences and set me up to become the best small animal surgeon I can be!
