Dr. Glenn Kalick attended the University of Massachusetts where he majored in Zoology.  He received a D.V.M. degree from Tufts University in 1995 and has practiced veterinary medicine ever since.  Dr. Kalick worked at area veterinary hospitals for 5 years, but never stopped dreaming about owning his own hospital, where he could provide his patients with the best veterinary care.  That dream came true in August of 1999, when Brookside Animal Hospital opened it's doors for the very first time.  Thanks to you - our clients and furry patients - we are making that dream happen.
