Main Street Animal Services of Hopkinton is pleased to announce the newest member of the practice, Rebecca (Becky) Fraser, DVM.
Dr. Fraser is originally from Winterport, Maine. She has been practicing vet medicine for 12 years. She attended NC State College of Veterinary Medicine and worked for a couple years in North Carolina before relocating to Baltimore where she started her journey with integrative medicine. Over 6 years ago she studied TCVM at the Chi Institute and soon started a house call vet practice based around TCVM, nutrition, herbs, and functional medicine. She later expanded into palliative/hospice care for dogs and cats.
Late this summer, Dr. Fraser and her family moved to Massachusetts due to her husband’s career. She is thrilled to be back in New England to raise her family. Her kids, Camden (10yrs), Eli (7yrs), and Grace (5yrs) are looking forward to a snowy winter and lots of skiing. They also enjoy playing and hiking with their boxer, Max. A sweet kitty, Taz, completes their family.
We are thrilled to have another member of our family that can provide the highest level of care to our patients.
Our doctors participate in continuing education far in excess of what is required by the licensing authority. To further this two-way effort, we also host at MASH (and in Dr. Roman’s home) visiting doctors and scientists.
In July 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it had begun investigating reports of canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs eating certain pet foods, many labeled as "grain-free," which contained a high proportion of peas, lentils, other legume seeds (pulses), and/or potatoes in various forms (whole, flour, protein, etc.) as main ingredients (listed within the first 10 ingredients in the ingredient list, before vitamins and minerals).
To the Many Wonderful Clients and Patients I've worked with at MASH,
This letter is to inform that I have left MASH to pursue other opportunities. I want to thank Dr. Roman and her family for opening up their clinic to me and entrusting me with the many wonderful clients and patients who have been loyal to MASH for the last 30 years. My time here has been inspiring as I have worked with you all to create health, balance and joy for the beautiful animal companions with whom we are honored to share our lives.
We walked closer to see if the dogs had injured the bird or if it was able to escape them unscathed. As we came closer, we could see that a blue heron was motionless in the bushes. The majestic bird was completely tangled in fishing line.
