Meagan Painter, Veterinary Specialist

DVM, DACVD

Dr. Meagan Painter graduated with honors from the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in May 2014. Upon graduation, Dr. Painter completed a rigorous one-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, MA. She was then selected to complete a residency in veterinary dermatology with the Animal Dermatology Clinic in 2015. This dynamic residency allowed her to see patients at Veterinary Healing Arts in Rhode Island, train with the Animal Dermatology Clinics in California, review histopathology with the dermatology group at Tufts and take part in comparative dermatology training with the residents in human dermatology at Brown University! Dr. Painter obtained board certification from the American College of Veterinary Dermatology in November 2018. Dr. Painter's research interests include developing strategies to understand and improve health behavior and adherence. Her favorite cases include adverse food reactions, allergic dermatitis, complicated infection and immune-mediated dermatoses. She really enjoys helping clients and colleagues understand how to successfully approach and manage their dermatology cases. No case is too big or too small! Dr. Painter is very excited to join the team at San Francisco Veterinary Specialists! Away from work, Dr. Painter loves spending time with her husband, daughter and their four-legged family members. As a New England native, Dr. Painter can't wait to explore California and call this awesome part of the world home.
