Dr. Rose Burdon grew up in the United Kingdom and was inspired by James Herriot to become a veterinarian at an early age. She completed her veterinary studies in 1991 at Bristol University. Soon after graduating, she came across the pond to the United States where she practiced for twelve years at the MSPCA hospital on Nantucket Island. There she took care of all creatures great and small, – literally, furry, feathered, finned and hooved! After moving to New York, she practiced for six years at West Chelsea Veterinary and then at the ASPCA as part of their National training team, which trained veterinary groups in new spay/neuter techniques. She also earned certification in veterinary acupuncture in 1998 providing an important treatment option for her patients. Dr. Burdon joined the Abingdon Square Veterinary Clinic staff in August 2013.
Dr. Burdon’s professional interests include geriatric medicine and internal medicine where she takes an integrative approach. She also enjoys volunteering for spay/neuter organizations in her free time. Dr. Burdon is a member of the New York City Veterinary Medical Society, the New York State Veterinary Medical Association, the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
She lives in Manhattan with her family including three rescue cats and her adorable Labrador Filly.
