Dr. Amber Meade
Dr. Meade earned her veterinary degree from North Carolina State University in 2009, and she became certified in acupuncture by attending the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course in Colorado. Prior to opening Broadway Veterinary Hospital in downtown Durham, Dr. Meade has worked as a vet in a corporate small animal hospital, a private practice small animal hospital, and an animal emergency hospital. Prior to her pursuit of veterinary medicine, she earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Tampa with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry. Upon graduation, she worked as a veterinary assistant in a 24-hour emergency and referral animal hospital in Florida for over 2 years. She then relocated to the Washington, DC area and worked in a human infectious disease lab utilizing PCR to detect disease. This led her to pursue a graduate degree in Immunology at Duke University in Durham. However, her passion to work with animals remained, and after earning her Master’s in Science degree at Duke, she pursued her doctorate of veterinary medicine.
Dr. Meade is proud to be a small business owner within the Durham community! Since moving to Durham in 2001, she has been impressed with the revitalization that has occurred in downtown Durham. She feels that it is important to support small, locally-owned businesses in order to help maintain and strengthen the local economy. She officially considers herself a Durhamite, and she hopes to live, work, and retire in Durham.
Dr. Meade currently owns two middle-aged cats and one middle-aged dog. Her dog, Bear, has three legs due to an injury that would not heal with multiple surgical procedures. Bear lives a normal life with many people not realizing that he is missing a leg when they first meet him! One of her cats was reunited with her after being missing for 7 years. The presence of a microchip allowed her to be contacted once the cat was found. Her love of veterinary medicine and the desire to open an animal hospital were in part due to her many wonderful pets that she has had the pleasure of knowing in her life.

She began caring for animals at an early age, devoting her free time to volunteering with the Orange County animal shelter, a local wildlife sanctuary (Carnivore Preservation Trust in Pittsboro), and the Humane Society of the United States. Dr. Noger also worked for the Conservators Center (a wildlife conservation and rescue center near Mebane) and as a veterinary assistant while taking the required courses to get into vet school — her long-term life goal. While in vet school Dr. Noger was active with the Companion Animal Wellness Club and PathHeads (the pathology club). She helped organize community events like Dog Olympics, developed partnerships between the vet school and local wildlife facilities, and conducted research in feline infectious disease. Dr. Noger graduated from N.C. State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2017 with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Noger is passionate about advocating for the health and wellbeing of all animals. She has particular interests in infectious diseases, feline medicine, geriatric care, and the human-animal bond. Dr. Noger looks forward to meeting all of her furred, scaled, and feathered patients and their human families!
Dr. Noger and her husband have a house full of dogs, cats, and various foster animals. In her spare time, she enjoys having fun with family and friends, learning new crafts, being outside in nature, gardening, and weightlifting.
