Dr. Tracie (Rundle) Fountas has been practicing veterinary medicine since 1999. The most rewarding part of her career is experiencing the bond between her clients and their pets. To her, being a vet is about more than just medicine and surgery, it is about family. Building that relationship is so important to her, and she knows that to do so, she must go above and beyond what medicine can provide. Her veterinary interests include dermatology, internal medicine and soft tissue surgery.
Born and raised in New Brunswick, Canada she relocated to Prince Edward Island and earned her doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from The Atlantic Veterinary College with honors. Following graduation she moved to Massachusetts and worked at 2 multi doctor practices. Next she accepted a chief of staff position to a corporate hospital in New Hampshire before opening River Road Veterinary Hospital in 2008. She has been members of both American Veterinary Association and The Veterinary Information Network since 1999.
Drs. Fountas have 4 dogs. BoBo, a miniature Dachshund rescue, now 9 and the inspiration for our hospital logo. Ehlers, an American foxhound cross from Alabama, is 7 yrs old. Bromley and Brix ,a miniature Dachshund and Weimaraner respectively, are both 2 years of age. When she is not working with pets she enjoys gardening, cooking, woodworking and photography.
