Dr. Tim Queeney

Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Tim Queeney grew up in Pembroke, Massachusetts, where he made an early foray into the field of animal medicine. An elementary school career project connected him with a local veterinary surgeon, who offered to introduce young Dr. Queeney to the operating room. Though the second-grader nearly passed out from seeing a real-life spleen, he was hooked right away! Dr. Queeney knew that he was destined to become a veterinarian himself.

Dr. Queeney left New England after high school, heading south to study neuroscience at the University of Miami and taking a job as a Veterinary Assistant at the same time. After graduation, he completed an internship at the Miami Seaquarium and worked closely with marine mammals. Next, Dr. Queeney attended veterinary school at the University of Florida in Gainesville, earning his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine as well as a Master’s degree in public health.

After his time in veterinary school—during which he adopted his beloved Catahoula Leopard dog, Lenny—Dr. Queeney moved to North Carolina and signed on at a small-animal practice. He would help pets there for the next four years before signing on with the Hambright Animal Hospital family. Dr. Queeney has special interests in soft-tissue surgerydermatology, and infectious disease treatment. For him, the most rewarding part of every day is connecting personally with the area’s pet owners and helping their companions to feel better.

Dr. Queeney’s interests outside of work include cooking, working out, watching football, playing soccer, and hiking in the great outdoors. He’s hiked in some amazing locations across the country, including the Appalachian Trail, the White Mountain National Forest, and the Grand Canyon!
