We are excited to announce Dr. Megan Hardy has joined the AAC family! She hails from Lexington, Kentucky where she was born and raised. She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky, and completed her rigorous veterinary medical training at the College of Veterinary Medicine of Auburn University (War Eagle!). We first got to meet Dr. Hardy when she completed her professional training this spring with a preceptorship program here in our practice. Our doctors and staff were so impressed with her skills that we offered her a long-term position starting this September.
Dr. Hardy will be seeing patients Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and some Saturdays. She will provide services in general medicine and preventative health with a focus in small animal dentistry.
