Born and raised in western Connecticut, Dr. Kos grew up surrounded by multiple cats and her grandparents’ dogs. Her passion for veterinary medicine stems from her interest in difficult science, creative thinking and, of course, her love of animals. After obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and English Literature, Dr. Kos went on to complete her Doctorate at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating, she made her way up to Cornell University where she was an intern in their Department of Small Animal Medicine and Surgery. A year later, Dr. Kos moved on to become a clinical instructor in Cornell’s Clinical Pathology Lab. After spending a year teaching, Dr. Kos joined the Bolton Veterinary team in 2002 as an associate veterinarian and has been with us ever since! Her specialties include ultrasonography, hematology, clinical chemistry and cytology. Dr. Kos’s other interests include surgical procedures and emergency medicine. She shares her home with her four incredibly spoiled dogs and two cats. When she isn’t working, Dr. Kos can be found reading, writing, hiking with her dogs, or riding her lovable (but sometimes obstinate) horse.
