Dr. Christopher Ulrich - Practice Owner

Dr. Ulrich graduated from The University College, Dublin, Ireland in 2001. He came to Huron in November of 2007 after practicing at several Boston area hospitals.  He became owner of Huron in March 2008 and thereafter also purchased the pet grooming business located next door.

Dr. Ulrich is an avid fisherman, climber, snowboarder, and lives locally in nearby Cambridge with his wife and their three cats and a dog. Eddie, Stevie (AKA Squeaky), and the infamous 3-legged Stan are the feline portion of the family, and Fergus is his small, cat-like terrier who visits the clinic very often!

Dr. Michael McEwan - Associate Veterinarian 

We are SO excited to welcome Dr. McEwan back to our practice as our new full-time associate veterinarian! So glad to have you back "home" Dr. McEwan!

Dr. Michael McEwan grew up in northern New Jersey. He received his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Carnegie Mellon University in 2003 and a Master of Science in Organic Chemistry from Northeastern University in 2008. Dr. McEwan previously worked as a synthetic organic medicinal chemist for nearly 5 years designing new potential drugs for a variety of therapeutic targets, primarily treatments of cancer. In an effort to work more hands-on with patients, Dr. McEwan decided to leave laboratory work behind and move to a more clinical setting and began working as a veterinary technician here at Huron!

After almost 2 years as our technician, he applied for veterinary school. He received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. His interests include dermatology, preventative care, radiology, and pathology. Dr. McEwan volunteers with 2 local feral cat clinics and at a veterinary clinic in Worcester. He has lived in Massachusetts with his wife, a Boston native, and their dog, Sirena, since 2005. They have have two little girls, daughters Leah and Katie. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. McEwan enjoys hiking, canoeing, traveling, weight training, and cooking.
