Tracey A. Rossi, DVM, DACVIM

In Dr. Rossi’s own words, “internists are thinkers” who often are called upon by their primary care colleagues and other specialists to provide expert opinions on blood and urine tests, cultures and more – all to ensure the most accurate diagnosis possible. This broad knowledge base, along with her compassionate nature and team-player attitude, is one reason many of her co-workers consider Dr. Rossi the ultimate professional.

Dr. Rossi attended UNC-Chapel Hill as an undergraduate, where she received a B.S. in biology with a minor in chemistry. She earned her DVM at North Carolina State University in 2003, and completed her internship at the Veterinary Referral & Emergency Center in Norwalk, Connecticut. While a resident at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, Dr. Rossi’s research focus was infectious diseases.

Although she enjoys all aspects of internal medicine, Dr. Rossi is especially interested in nephrology and endocrinology. In addition to various diagnostic tests, she also routinely performs such interventional procedures such as tracheal and urethral stenting.

Dr. Rossi is an advocate for her patients, and strives each day to provide compassionate care to both pets and their human families.


Dr. Rossi has a strong bond with Rottweilers. She once adopted a Rottie, Bella, from a dying client, and soon found out Bella was suffering from an inoperable spinal tumor. Bella received radiation therapy and lived another year and a half as part of Dr. Rossi’s family. Dr. Rossi credits kindness from friends and colleagues throughout the years for this “pay-it-forward” attitude.
