Behavior

Dr. Taylor Kirby-Madden has a special interest and wide range of experience in behavioral medicine and is currently pursuing a behavior residency. She started her career working with animals at the Animal Rescue League of Boston, helping to design and implement behavior modification plans for dogs and cats with aggression, anxiety, and other behavioral special needs. She also worked as a dog trainer for several years before attending the Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine. While in veterinary school, she was President of the student chapter of the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior and won a prestigious research award to examine the effects of environmental enrichment in shelter dogs. She presented her research findings at the 2013 meeting of the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, and the findings were subsequently published in the April 2014 Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
 
Dr. Kirby-Madden was recently the staff veterinarian on the Behavior Service at the Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston until she decided to open her own practice closer to home on Cape Cod. She has lectured at Angell Animal Medical Center, Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and continues to offer her expertise to professionals. Dr. Kirby-Madden is a Fear Free Certified professional and is enthusiastic about sharing how to implement low-stress handling techniques in hospitals, shelters, or at home. She loves helping people understand the "why" of their pet's behavior, as well as designing individualized, workable plans to help improve quality of life for pets and their people.
