Kevin Connolly, DVM

Resident in Equine Medicine

Dr. Connolly completed his DVM at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of California at Los Angeles.

Prior to completing his DVM, Dr. Connolly worked in a biotechnology department for a manufacturing corporation. He worked on novel biologicals and polymers for tissue engineering, while developing skills in anatomy and physiology through working in an animal research facility. He continued to develop his research skills through graduate school and a postdoctoral fellowship, determining the mechanisms of infectivity and antibiotic resistance in food animals and developing unique antimicrobials against S. aureus. During veterinary school, he worked on research projects in nutrition, orthopedics, and anatomy.

Following the completion of his DVM, Dr. Connolly completed an internship at the South Shore Equine Clinic in Plympton, Massachusetts which gave him the opportunity to hone his clinical skills.
