Barbara Guy, DVM, is the medical director and an emergency veterinarian at AnimERge in Somerset County.
Since the age of 12, Dr. Guy knew she wanted to become a veterinarian, after being inspired by grandfather, who also wanted to be a veterinarian as a child, but could not afford to go to college. His love for animals stirred her love for animals. She combined this love with her caregiving personality and intellect in her decision to pursue veterinary medicine, fulfilling her dream and that of her grandfather. She earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Minnesota.
Dr. Guy’s veterinary career began with her own private practice, where she specialized in equine medicine, but she eventually shifted toward emergency veterinary care and joined the team at AnimERge in 2007. To stay current on the latest in veterinary medicine, she holds affiliations with the American Veterinary Medical Association and Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association. She has also completed continuing education courses at North American Veterinary Community Conference and Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference.
Dr. Guy is the proud mother of three, which she considers one of her greatest accomplishments. She is also a pet mom of three cats named Bunny, Peter, and Oliver and a dog named Phoebe. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling to new places for the many new visual splendors and meeting new people. She also loves Disney and has visited many times without ever tiring of it.
