Dr. Heather Burrowes is originally from Long Island, New York but has made the Capital District her home for many years. She graduated from Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012 and has been a small animal general practitioner ever since, with a special emphasis on pain management, sports medicine, dermatology, and internal medicine. She became certified in veterinary acupuncture at the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in 2019 and loves being able to use this skill to improve quality of life for all kinds of patients, from active working dogs to elderly indoor cats. Dr. Burrowes also cares for your small furry pets such as rabbits, hamsters, rats, mice, ferrets, and guinea pigs.

In her spare time, Dr. Burrowes is actively involved in the local dog sports community with her Brussels Griffon, Bender, and miniature poodle, Audie, who participate in everything from competition obedience to scent work and anything else that looks like fun! She is also an avid cook and gardener and enjoys spending most of the summer either digging in the dirt or canning what it produces.
