Dr. Jay McDonnell, MS, DACVIM - N
After earning his veterinary (DVM) and master's (MS) degree from the University of Missouri, Dr. McDonnell spent four years in general practice in Missouri and Oregon, "But I knew I wanted to do more, so I undertook a three-year Neurology-Neurosurgery residency at Tufts University in Massachusetts."
In 1998, he became board-certified in Neurology by the American College of Veterinary Medicine. Since then, Dr. McDonnell has been on a dual path of academia and private practice, first joining the faculty of University of Georgia where he taught in the hospital and classroom. In 2000, he became chief of Neurology-Neurosurgery at Tufts University. There he helped establish the in-house magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suite, a brain surgery unit and minimally-invasive CT-guided biopsy program.
Since moving to Maryland, Dr. McDonnell has become well-known for his work in the definitive treatment of brain tumors and spinal cord tumors, foramen magnum decompression/dorsal laminectomies and Wobblers disease. He established Veterinary Neurology and Imaging of the Chesapeake (VNIoC.COM) with hospitals in Annapolis and outside of Baltimore. He has lectured nationally, internationally and regionally, and has published more than 20 journal articles, reviews and book chapters.
