Lucy O'Byrne, DVM


Dr. O’Byrne always knew she wanted to become a veterinarian. In high school, she began working with animals as a veterinary assistant at the local animal hospital – and hasn’t stopped caring for animals since.

She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tufts University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biochemistry, then went on to receive her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Tufts University’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. After graduation, she was awarded an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at NYC’s prestigious Animal Medical Center.

Dr. O’Byrne is passionate about all aspects of veterinary medicine – from wellness care to complex medical conditions. She has advanced training in Dentistry from the Animal Dental Center in Baltimore, Maryland. She is a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist from the Chi Institute in Reddick, Florida, bringing integrative “alternative” aspects into her daily practice, especially chronic conditions and senior pets. Additionally,Dr. O’Byrne is an accredited USDA veterinarian for patients anticipating international travel. Before joining the Millburn Veterinary Hospital team, Dr. O’Byrne was practicing in New York City at the West Village Veterinary Hospital. 

Dr. O’Byrne lives in Millburn with her husband, son, daughter, and her loving English Springer Spaniel, Jambo. When she is not at work, she enjoys curling (yes, the ice sport with brooms) and spending with her family.
