Dr. Gina Shade
Please help us welcome Dr. Gina Tranquillo-Shade to Macungie Animal Hospital. Dr. Shade is a Pennsylvania native. She spent her high school years riding horses in Berks County. Dr. Shade knew from a young age that she wanted to be a veterinarian and after completing her Bachelors at Wilson College in Chambersburg, went on to receive her veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School.
She began her career as an equine veterinarian working for 10 years in Lexington Kentucky. Upon moving back to the Lehigh Valley, she began practicing more small animal medicine and before joining MAH, practiced at another small animal practice in our area.
Dr. Shade has an interest in holistic medicine and in 2014 received her certification in veterinary acupuncture. She also enjoys internal medicine cases, preventative medicine, strengthening the human-animal bond, and helping pets live their best life.
In her personal time, Dr. Shade enjoys spending time outside, walking, hiking, gardening, and enjoying her family and her dog and cat. She still enjoys horses very much and rides at a local farm whenever possible.
