Amy has a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Bates College. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. Following graduation Amy entered a two-year residency program in Field Service at New Bolton Center, UPenn veterinary school’s large animal clinic.  There she taught fourth-year students on farm calls and also pursued her interest in neonatal calf health, sheep and goat medicine, and bovine herd health evaluations. After completing her residency Amy worked in both large and small animal clinics in New York and Vermont. At Cold Hollow Veterinary Services she continues to expand her knowledge and experience in small ruminants, alpacas and llamas through continuing education courses and seminars. Most recently Amy attended the Equine Acupuncture Course at the Chi Institute in Reddick, FL. Amy considers acupuncture, either alone or in combination with conventional medicine, a valuable tool in veterinary medicine. It can be especially helpful in organically raised animals. In horses, acupuncture has been shown to effectively alleviate pain and treat disease. Presently, Amy is offering acupuncture for horses, dairy cattle, sheep and goats.
