Dr. Caitlin Owen grew up riding ponies through the woods in her hometown of Groton, Massachusetts. She considers West Barnstable a second home though as she spent much of her childhood visiting family there. As a kid she vaulted, rode dressage, was in 4-H, worked in a dressage barn and went on fun adventures with her ponies. After rehabilitating her Thoroughbred mare from a long illness with EPM, Caitlin first consciously considered becoming a veterinarian. Fifteen years later and she still has that (now thirty-one year old) mare! On her road to becoming a vet Caitlin attended the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where she obtained a bachelors degree in animal science. While at UMass, she studied abroad in the west of Ireland where she rode lots of cool horses and fell in love with the country. When it came time to choose a veterinary school, Europe was calling. Caitlin completed her veterinary degree at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in beautiful Edinburgh, Scotland. As a vet student Caitlin got to travel and learn from equine clinicians all over the USA, the UK, Ireland and Denmark. South Shore Equine Clinic was one of the places she visited an extern and that experience clearly left a good impression! After graduation she was again drawn across the Atlantic to Ireland, where this time she completed an equine hospital internship in the heart of Thoroughbred racing country.

Caitlin E. Owen Caitlin is excited to be working back home in Massachusetts now at South Shore Equine Clinic. She is looking forward to getting more involved with ambulatory work and getting to know the horses and people of the south shore! Caitlin's primary veterinary interests include foals, imaging, colic, and generally keeping horses happy and healthy! Outside of work she likes to traveling and spending time with her horses, family and friends. She's extra excited to live so close to the ocean and hopes to find a little time this summer to get a spot of surfing in!
