Dr. Meghan McGrath
Dr. Meg grew up in a house filled with dogs, cats, lizards, birds, Guinea pigs and hamsters. While caring for her four-legged family members, she pursued her love of science. After completing an undergraduate degree in Chemistry, she started graduate school in pursuit of a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering. However, her love of chemistry pulled her towards a Master of Science at Villanova researching inorganic chemistry. In her free-time she began volunteering at a local veterinary hospital. It was during her volunteer hours that she found a combination of her love of animals and science and applied to University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.
Living above an animal hospital throughout vet school, she used her newly gained knowledge to care for patients nightly. Graduating in 2007, she started at a private practice in Radnor, PA. Focusing her skills on small animals and exotic pets, she served the Main Line Community with medical and surgical care.
In 2011, after adopting her daughter from China, Dr. Meg transitioned to a new position as Medical Director at Main Line Animal Rescue (MLAR). During her time, she provided personal and high end medical care to rescue animals from around the country. Her patients have included domestic dogs and cats, birds, amphibians, reptiles and wildlife.
Of all her accomplishments, Dr. Meg is particularly proud of her time helping rescue animals with MLAR. Having personally helped rescue and heal animals from abusive situations, natural disasters, and neglect, Dr Meg will continue to be a part of the rescue community at East Bradford Veterinary Hospital.
In her free time, Dr. Meg spends time with her husband and daughter. In their home they have rescued and loved many animals over the years. Currently they share their home with four dogs (1 diabetic, 1 blind, 1 megaesophagus, and 1 senior), three cats (2 seniors and 1 hermaphrodite), and a Guinea Pig (who loves his veggies). Her hobbies include working out, indulging in zombie movies, HGTV, DIY around the house, exploring new foods, and hiking in the woods. She has also actively involved in multiple organizations such as AVMA, PVMA, rescue organizations, and her community.
Ashley is a graduate from West Chester University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She continued her education with a Veterinary Nursing Degree from Harcum College and completed two competitive internships at the Philadelphia Zoo and the University of Pennsylvania. During her career, Ashley has worked with small animals and exotics at the UPenn Veterinary Hospital and a local Main Line Veterinary hospital.
For the last several years, Ashley has been a key component at Main Line Animal Rescue (MLAR) and has provided care in some of the most challenging environments. Known for her compassion, Ashley has nursed to health multiple sets of abandoned kittens and puppies, some of who were found alone and forgotten hours after their births. She brings this same expertise and compassion to the East Bradford Veterinary Hospital team.
When not assisting in surgery or the exam room, Ashley is spending time with her husband Dan. Together their home has a one-eyed dog Uno, her Boston Terrier Gordie, and Bobert the cat. Her hobbies include jogging, excelling at arts and crafts, and spending time at the family beach house in Ocean City.
During college, Ryan was a competitive diver and continues to work in the sport as a highly-respected coach. He is a graduate of West Chester University and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. After his undergraduate degree he found his passion when he started working with animals.
After completing a rigorous internship at the Philadelphia Zoo, Ryan worked with rescue animals for several years at Main Line Animal Rescue. Most recently, he has begun pursuing a Veterinary Nursing degree with a focus on small animals and exotics. As part of the East Bradford Veterinary Hospital team, Ryan is bringing years of training and experience to the community.
In his free time Ryan is a voice for animals and has adopted a beautiful Pibbie (pit bull mix) named Petunia. Together, they spend her day hiking in the sunshine as they explore Chester County’s gorgeous scenery.
Megan started years ago in the animal world as a technician at a local Main Line animal hospital. During her career, she has owned her own boarding facility, where love and care were provided for all her guests. During this time, Megan immersed herself in the rescue community and began working with Main Line Animal Rescue where she helped to provide successful placement of animals.
Known for her gentle nature and compassion, she has been providing training and grooming for the past 10 years. As a part of the East Bradford Veterinary Hospital community, she is bringing her experience and caring to a new set of clients. With a full grooming facility and a walk-in bathing area, Megan is looking forward to helping young and senior clients.
Megan shares her home with her loving boyfriend Russ, who has been a part of the animal rescue community for years, and their five rescue dogs. Cricket, Roux, Kahlua, Bourbon, and Penelope have had years of rehabilitation provided by Megan. Where they once feared humans, they now crowd their owners out of bed by lying belly up and sprawling out.
When not providing care, Megan is growing cacti and succulents. Her green thumb also helps maintain the green areas of East Bradford Vet Hospital.
