Veterinarian/ Practice Owner
Dr. Berry graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1977 with a BS degree in Animal Science. Because of an interest in food animal production, he began study and received his DVM degree from the University Of Florida College Of Veterinary Medicine in 1981. Having re-evaluating options following graduation, he started his clinical practice career at a local companion animal practice, the Glen Burnie Animal Hospital. Seeking a change of pace, a five year stint at the Emergency Veterinary Clinic (EVC) in Catonsville, MD followed his first practice association. After the EVC experience he worked as a relief veterinarian in several area practices before starting his own practice (Whetstone Point Veterinary Hospital) in the Federal Hill area of Baltimore, MD. Four years later he purchased the Animal Medical Center of Mount Washington. In 2005, the Federal Hill practice was sold and Animal Medical Center of Mount Washington, now rebranded and renamed, “The Village Vet”, became his singular professional object of interest. Numerous equipment, technology and physical plant upgrades have occurred and continue to be a part of the long term practice goal of providing quality companion animal care to the surrounding neighborhoods of Mount Washington Village.
Dr. Berry is married to Marie Therese, a Philadelphia, PA native who came to the Maryland/ DC area to study Art Therapy at George Washington University and work following graduation. Their son, Christopher, has now graduated from college with a degree in Electrical Engineering and works in Philadelphia, PA. Marie and Rob enjoy time in their home with their two cats (down from a peak population of five cats). Gardening is his primary interest; floral design is Marie’s interest. Music (piano and bagpiping) is a close second interest much to the consternation of their neighbors. They both are looking to move to a more rural location so that they can further pursue their outside interests and add more four footed companions to their household.
