Juliet Gladden - DVM, DACVECC

I graduated from North Carolina State University-College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002 with a passion for exotic animal medicine and spent a number of years working in both private practice and emergency settings with a focus on exotic animal care. I was fortunate enough to have an amazing opportunity to be a clinical instructor of Zoological Medicine (zoo, wildlife, aquatics and exotic pets) at the University of Georgia where I was able to truly appreciate referral level exotic animal medicine and surgery.

My ultimate enthusiasm for both exotic animal and emergency critical care medicine was realized when I transitioned from a senior emergency clinician to an emergency critical care resident at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Tampa, FL.; a private practice referral center providing outstanding, progressive, specialty services for both companion and exotic animals. Within this training environment I was able to recognize the essential need for collaborative efforts between exotic animal specialists and boarded criticalists.

I completed my emergency critical care residency program at BluePearl Veterinary Partners and obtained board certification in emergency critical care medicine in 2013. I am currently an assistant professor in emergency and critical care medicine at Tufts University and enjoy a diverse caseload of both companion and exotic animals.  I remain passionate about both companion and exotic animal emergency critical care medicine and sincerely hope to continue to contribute to this rapidly expanding field of veterinary medicine through teaching and research.
