Our Doctors


Neil Marrinan, DVM


Dr. Neil has always wanted to be a veterinarian. He studied history as an undergraduate at the Honors College of Michigan State University where he was a National Merit Scholar, and graduated from Michigan State University's College of Veterinary Medicine.  His classmates chose him for the Dr. Robert B. Ziegler Caring Award at graduation.  He has special interests in pain relief (analgesia/anesthesia) and oncology. Before opening the Old Lyme Veterinary Hospital, he was an ER vet at regional 24-hour trauma centers, practiced at a cat specialty hospital, and spent ten years in companion animal practice in New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. When he's not at the hospital, he is usually chasing kids around to soccer games or 4-H chicken shows.


Alice Kroger - Marrinan, DVM


Dr. Alice has a degree in biology from Kalamazoo College and earned her DVM at Michigan State.  While in veterinary school, Dr. Alice worked in thyroid research and became interested in endocrinology and reproduction.  She is also particularly interested in rabbit medicine, and has been a trusted small animal veterinarian for more than 20 years.  In her spare time, Dr. Alice enjoys being a 4-H leader, gardening, and riding horses.  The Marrinans have 3 children, 2 dogs, 4 horses, 5 chickens.  So Dr. Alice doesn't really have any spare time after all!
