Dr. Timothy Queeney earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and Master of Public Health degrees at the University of Florida. He grew up in Pembroke, Massachusetts where he made an early foray into the field of animal health. An elementary school career project connected him with a veterinary surgeon who offered to introduce him to the operating room. Though the second-grader nearly passed out from seeing a spleen in real life, he was hooked.
Dr. Queeney left New England after high school and headed south to the University of Miami. There, he studied neuroscience and began working at a veterinary hospital as an assistant. After graduating, he completed an internship at the Miami Seaquarium working with marine mammals. While in veterinary school in Gainesville, Florida he adopted a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix named Lenny. Dr. Queeney and Lenny moved to North Carolina to join a small animal practice where he worked for four years before joining Hambright Animal Hospital.
Areas of particular interest for Dr. Queeney include soft tissue surgery, dermatology, and infectious disease. The most rewarding part of his daily work is helping people by keeping their pets healthy and happy members of the family.
When he is not in the office, Dr. Queeney prefers to spend time in the outdoors. He has hiked in some amazing locations across the United States including the Appalachian Trail, the White Mountain National Forest, and the Grand Canyon. Dr. Queeney enjoys cooking, working out, watching football, and playing soccer.
