Eric Wood, DVM
Dr. Wood attended The University of Rhode Island’s Wildlife Biology and Management program. He then moved to Montana and attended Montana State University, where he completed the Pre-Veterinary curriculum. He then attended Colorado State University, where he received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. He spent the next year practicing general veterinary medicine in Connecticut, and then relocated to Montana, where he spent 5 years working, not only as a general practitioner, but as an emergency veterinarian as well. In 2010, Dr. Wood decided it was time to return to his native state, Rhode Island! He joined the Newport Animal Hospital Team in January of 2011, and we couldn’t be happier! Dr. Wood’s special interests include cruciate ligament repair surgery in dogs, offering both the lateral suture technique as well as the Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) procedure. Other interests include oncology and chemotherapy, general surgery and pain management.
