Veterinarian - Surgeon
Dr. Megan Lamb is a board-certified equine surgeon who grew up on her parents’ Thoroughbred breeding farm in Ocala, Florida training and competing in A-circuit hunters, eventing, and dressage. In addition to graduating from the US Pony Club at the HA level, she was involved in her father’s equine veterinary practice at an early age. After obtaining a bachelor of arts degree in Classical Studies with magna cum laude honors from Colgate University (Hamilton, NY, 2005), she graduated as the class salutatorian from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine (Gainesville, FL, 2009) with a doctoral degree in veterinary medicine.
After veterinary school, Dr. Lamb pursued specialty surgery training consisting of a year long surgical internship at the New Jersey Equine Clinic (Millstone Township, NJ 2010) and three year surgical residency at Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center (Leesburg, VA, 2010-2013). As part of this advanced training program, Dr. Lamb obtained a master’s degree in Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences from Virginia Tech University (Blacksburg, VA, 2013). Her thesis research evaluating novel techniques for treating collateral ligament injuries in the hoof was published in the peer-reviewed journal of Veterinary Radiology and Ultrasound. In 2014 she passed the surgery board specialty exam to become a diplomate in the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. She worked as the staff surgeon for four years at Retama Equine Hospital near San Antonio, TX prior to moving to the Roaring Fork Valley as a founding member of the hospital when RFEMC opened in 2017. Dr. Lamb’s clinical interests include emergency colic surgery, sinus and upper respiratory surgeries, arthroscopic joint surgery, and the treatment of neoplasia/cancer. She enjoys the variety that private practice provides, balancing general wellness care services with referral-based specialty cases.
