Alyson Waring, MVB
Dr. Waring was born and raised on a small Morgan breeding farm in Sandy Creek, NY (Lakewind Morgans). On the back of a horse before she could walk, she was a member of Oswego County 4-H and Limestone Pony Club. She loved being a “horse nerd” and successfully competed in knowledge based and dressage competitions.
Following her love of science, she obtained a BS in Biochemistry from Ithaca College in 2011. While there she rode on the equestrian team and worked with orthopedic research horses at Cornell University.
A love of travel and desire to live abroad led her to University College Dublin in Ireland, where she attended veterinary school. Four years living in Dublin allowed her to visit many amazing places while obtaining her degree.
After graduating from UCD in 2015 she started a one-year rotating equine internship at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. There, she was able to further develop her equine skills while rotating through medicine, surgery, ICU and ambulatory services.
Dr. Waring loves all aspects of ambulatory practice, but is particularly interested in ophthalmology, preventative medicine and client education.
When not working she enjoys travelling, cooking and hiking with her husband Mike- also a Central New York native. Their family also includes Kingston- the Guiding Eyes lab she raised as a puppy in Ithaca, and Bowser- a rescued blind bull terrier. Her Morgan is living out his retirement at her parent’s farm and she looks forward to finding her next equine partner.
