Dr. Carey McGowan grew up in a small town in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia. After high school, she attended Allegheny College in Meadville, PA earning a B.S. in Biology. Following undergraduate school, she moved to Morgantown, WV, and pursued her Masters of Science in Animal and Veterinary Science, where she also met her husband, Jeff. She was then accepted into the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine and earned her DVM in 1999. During her pursuit of her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, she was awarded the American Association of Feline Practitioner’s senior award for her performance and interest in feline medicine and surgery and she was inducted into the veterinary honor society of Phi Zeta and graduated Cum Laude in her class.
After graduating from veterinary school, she moved back to the Tri-state area to be near her family and began her career as an associate in a busy 24/7 general and emergency veterinary practice in the South Hills. She is very happy to join Avalon Veterinary Hospital to continue her passion for dentistry, feline internal medicine, and surgery.
Dr. McGowan lives in the South Hills with her husband and son. She enjoys reading, yoga, movies (especially of the Marvel variety), and spending quality time with her family. They share their lives with their dog, Bella, and 3 cats, Yoda, Padme, and Calvin Clifford III.
