Meet Dr. Sandy Higgins! Dr. Higgins recently relocated to the Cape from Needham. After graduating from Mt. Holyoke College in 1986, she went on to obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Tufts University in 1992. She has been a veterinarian locally since completing a rigorous internship at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in 1993. She is highly experienced and skilled at medicine, surgery, and dentistry.
