Dr. Linda Garrett

Dr. Garrett is that rare thing, a true Ithaca native, having grown up near the hospital with her family and lots of critters. She received her BS degree from Fordham University, followed by a MA in behavioral physiology from the same institution. After working briefly in medical research, she came back to Ithaca and earned her DVM degree from Cornell. Dr. G has maintained a strong interest in behavior and training since childhood, and is a member of the veterinary behavior society and Ithaca Dog Training Club, as well as the AVMA, Southern Tier VMA, and the Central NY Academy of Continuing Education. Her collie companion Corey enjoys any training that involves “cookies”, and has two obedience titles. The household cats are less impressed, but are willing to condescend to clicker-training, and will come, sit, and go to their spot on request (well… most of the time). When not caring for patients or having fun with her family, Dr. Garrett enjoys reading (Charles de Lint is a favorite), making pottery, photography, cooking, travel and myriad other pursuits.


Dr. Bridget Barry

Dr. Bridget Barry grew up in Watervliet, NY, graduated from Cornell in 1991, and has lived in Slaterville Springs on an old dairy farm ever since.  She currently works several days a month at a cat rescue/sanctuary in Franklin, NY, and volunteers with several local cat rescue/foster groups as well as being a veterinarian and surgeon at Meadowridge Mondays and Tuesdays.  Every year, Bridget volunteers with a spay/neuter campaign and has been to the Bahamas, Mexico and Peru to do surgery.  She is a member of VMAT and NRVT (national veterinary emergency response teams) and spent time in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.  A good chunk of Bridget’s spare time is spent taking care of her mostly rescued menagerie which includes 4 dogs and cats, an iguana and tortoise, sheep, goats, alpacas, chickens, turkeys, a goose, a llama, and a cow.


Dr. Eve Brown

Dr. Eve Brown grew up outside of Rochester, NY with four brothers. She was raised with dogs, cats, Saanen milk goats, chickens and an assortment of snakes, turtles, fish and bugs. She attended Cornell University undergrad and veterinary school for her education. Additionally, she has a professional interest in preventative medicine, especially in nutrition. She has been a veterinarian at Meadowridge for numerous years and is loved by all in the community. Eve’s interests outside of the veterinary field include gardening, cooking and walking her two border collies, Gus and Susie.
