Dr. McGuill graduated from Tufts Veterinary Medical School and then practiced small animal medicine at the Animal Rescue League Clinic in Boston. Dr. McGuill trained and became certified in veterinary acupuncture with the International Veterinary Medical Acupuncture Society. Besides acupuncture, he studied and practices other branches of traditional Chinese veterinary medicine, including therapeutic massage (Tui Na), diet, and herbs.
Dr. McGuill received a Masters of Public Health in Epidemiology, earned Board Certification in Veterinary Preventive Medicine, and served as the State Public Health Veterinarian for Massachusetts for nine years. He currently holds a teaching appointment through Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, where he teaches the principles of population medicine to veterinary students. Dr. McGuill’s interest in population medicine has led him to develop programs to limit the spread of infectious diseases in animal shelters, control rabies in wildlife, and reduce risks to people and animals of tick and mosquito-borne diseases, like West Nile virus and Lyme disease.
Dr. McGuill lives in Boston with his spouse and son. He enjoys struggling to keep up with his Jack Russell “terrorist” (his fourth) and kayak-fishing for stripers on Cape Cod with his son.
