Dr. Bridget Pope
I was Born and raised in Southern Vermont on a small horse farm. Since I can remember, I always loved animals and aspired to be a Veterinarian. I ambitiously chased that dream. I attended New Hampshire University where I obtained my B.S. in Pre Veterinary Medicine. After graduation I continued my academic career at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed my Clinical year at Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine. I graduated in May of 2014 when I joined Pittsfield Veterinary Hospital as a full time associate and moved to the Berkshires with my Husband Spencer. I practice general small animal medicine with a special interest in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. I love going to work and helping animals (and their people) feel better every day. Each and every day is unique as I continue to learn not only from various companion animals (of all species) but also from their owners. Other members of the family include Alexander, our 3 month old son, Indy, a 5-year-old Black- mouth Cur, Sammy, a 4-year-old boxer mix, and Wyatt, an 11-year-old English Lop eared rabbit.
