Cynthia Xue, DVM
Dr. Xue (known affectionately as “Dr. X”) received her Bachelor of Sciences in Animal Science from Rutgers University (2012) and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University (2016). She subsequently completed a rotating equine internship at Cornell Ruffian Equine Specialists (2016 - 2017) and went on to pursue a Large Animal Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Georgia (2017 - 2020). She is extremely passionate about furthering the field of donkey medicine and is excited for the opportunity to work with the donkey teaching herd at RUSVM.
Dr. Xue’s research interests include but are not limited to endocrinology, asinine pharmacology, and medical education. During her residency, she completed a research project investigating the pharmacokinetics of pergolide mesylate in donkeys.
