DR. CHRISTOPHER ULRICH, MVB
Practice Owner & Veterinarian
Dr. Ulrich, or the "kitty zen master" as his clients call him, received his undergraduate degree from the University of Vermont in Political Science and Philosophy. He then pursued his passion for animals at The University College, Dublin, Ireland which he graduated from with a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. He made his way to Huron Veterinary Hospital in November of 2007 after practicing at several Boston area hospitals. He shortly became the owner of Huron in March 2008 and has been healing furry friends since then!
Dr. Ulrich takes a special interest in treating grouchy cats and performing surgery. In his free time he is an avid fisherman (just get him talking about reels!), snowboarder, and hiker. He spends his weekends on Cape Cod enjoying nature and the peace and quiet it provides. He lives locally in Cambridge with his wife, son, and their four cats and dog. Eddie, Stevie (AKA Squeaky), Mayble, 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 (that's him curled up in the picture!).
DR. MICHAEL MCEWAN, DVM
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 two little girls, daughters Leah and Katie. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. McEwan enjoys hiking, canoeing, traveling, weight training, and cooking.
DR. JANE O'DONNELL, VMD
When she isn't working at one of the many clinics she does relief for, Dr. O'Donnell loves going on walks and runs along the Charles river in Cambridge. She also frequents Vermont with her husband Andy where they enjoy walking, snowshoeing, and running in the beautiful Vermont nature. Like many vets, she enjoys being around other people who love animals (that's why she loves coming to Huron!). She's a bird watcher, gardener, rock collector, knitter of occasional sweaters and maker of occasional baby quilts. She's enjoys riding her horse Brynjar, who came from Iceland, and hasn't fallen off yet (fingers crossed)! One of her favorite things is hanging out with her other furry friend, her dog Jack, who loves sitting on her (or anyone else for that matter..). She also has a new addition to the family: a black cat named Bug. He certainly lives up to his name and has mastered bugging his brother Jack!
