George Myers DVM, Founder
I graduated from the University of Illinois in 1973, with honors and completed an internship at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston, MA. I am passionate about surgery, concentrating on major surgeries such as ACL Cruciate repairs and enjoy surgical challenges as well as all diagnostics. My focus is on being kind and compassionate to all my clients and their pets, and enjoy the role of teacher and mentor to all the team members here at the hospital. When not caring for my patients I enjoy spending time with my family, wife Marian and sons Todd & Justin. My family also includes a Great Dane Tasha and a Yorkie named Riley, as well as Samson the cat, adopted from Strays In Need. I also enjoy travelling, especially to Africa, ballroom dancing with my wife, as well as gardening and photography.

I graduated from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999. Afterward I completed additional training at the Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston from 1999-2000. I have been at the Danvers Animal Hospital since 2008. I reside in Middleton MA with my wife, Rachel, and 2 children, Colin and Brooke. We have a hyperthyroid cat named Vegas and a Labradoodle named Izzy. I enjoy the outdoors including spending time in the woods and by the water. I like to camp and hike as well as spend relaxing days at the beach with the family. Occasionally I still play a little rugby, although I am probably getting a little too old for that. Professionally I have many interests. I love all aspects of medicine including oncology. I also very much enjoy the challenges of surgery. I have particular areas of interest in dental surgery and surgical oncology.

Colleen McGinley, MVB
I am very excited to be joining the wonderful team at the Danvers Animal Hospital this fall. I grew up in Boxford and my family used to bring our Golden Retriever to see Dr. Myers for many years. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend veterinary school myself and graduated from the University College Dublin, Ireland in 2014. Attending veterinary school abroad was one of the most exciting adventures I have taken in my life thus far. As many veterinarians can claim, I have always loved animals. But my passion for this profession is profoundly rooted in growing to know and care for my clients, as well as their beloved furry family members. I have six furry children of my own. Four dogs named Una, Einin, Ellie, and Padraig (all Irish names of course). As well as a cat named Shane and a Guinea Pig called Turnip. I also hope there is a Quarter Horse or two in my near future! My professional interests include dermatology, internal medicine, and diagnostic imaging. Personally, I enjoy playing my acoustic guitar poorly, riding, gardening, and am currently nurturing a new interest in American muscle cars.
