Dr. Gianna Gregory


Dr Gregory has a love for animals that was fostered from an early age. Starting in grade school, she worked toward her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian by volunteering at local shelters and eventually working her way up from kennel assistant to technician during any school breaks.

Throughout her educational and professional career she has gained experience in equine, bovine, and lab animal medicine, however it was small animal general practice that has won her heart. She loves that her profession allows her to make a difference in the lives of pets and their families. From preventive care, to medical and surgical management of acute and chronic disease, she aims to provide high quality care and develop life-long relationships.

Having grown up in Rhode Island, received her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Vermont, and earned her DVM from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, she is a true New Englander and is excited to care for the pets in the Sharon community. She lives with her husband, Phil, and their two Australian Shepherd rescues, Mo and Jewell.
