Salmon Brook announces some changes in the large animal division at our hospital. Dr. Creden, after 20 years on the road, will be transitioning into our small animal hospital in August. Her passion and dedication to patients and clients alike is so appreciated and we know she will be missed tremendously.

Our new associate veterinarian, Dr. Marjorie Bruce, will begin in July and will be riding along with our staff veterinarians during the summer months. Dr. Bruce is a native New Englander who recently completed a competitive, rotating internship at Rhinebeck Equine in New York. At Rhinebeck Equine Dr. Bruce worked closely with specialists in internal medicine, surgery, ophthalmology, and reproduction as well as multiple ambulatory doctors.

She spent the prior seven years in Colorado, where she earned her DVM and MBA degrees at Colorado State University. She is excited to be in Connecticut where she completed her undergraduate degree at UConn.

Dr. Bruce grew up eventing in Massachusetts, which sparked her passion for horses. Her main interests are in equine internal medicine, critical care, and general practice. In her spare time, she enjoys her two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Elvis and Alanna, reading, hiking, and seeing friends. She is a passionate world traveler and aspires to visit a new country every year.
