Dr. Hilary Rodd, DVM
Coming Soon! Dr. Hilary will be joining the practice in Mid-June 2021 and we are very excited to welcome her aboard!
“I had dreamed of becoming a veterinarian since I was 8 years old. I had such a keen interest in animal anatomy and I loved animals of all shapes and sizes. My childhood family veterinarian became my hero after she saved our Labrador, Molly, during an emergency C-section. It was because of this event that I wanted to be the person who went above and beyond for animals and care for my clients’ pets as if they were my own.
I have two wonderful, active, water-loving, Labrador Retrievers, Georgie and Indy. I also live with a rambunctious, goofy, adopted Rottweiler, Leonard. My husband, Kyle, is encouraging and supportive of my career and such an amazing partner in life. We have a smiley, happy, and active son, Ainslie, who likes to keep all of us on our toes.”

Dr. Hilary graduated in 2010 with her degree in veterinary medicine from Murdoch University in Perth, Australia. Although most of her childhood was spent in Newmarket, in the summer months she resided at her cottage on Gloucester Pool near Coldwater. Dr. Hilary met Dr. Kathy at a local Orillia practice during her volunteer hours when she was completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph. Upon graduating from Murdoch University, Dr. Hilary moved back to Ontario where she practiced mixed animal medicine in Midland, and then worked at a small animal practice in Orillia. She joined our practice at Lake Country Animal Hospital in 2021 and is very excited for her new adventure. She has a special interest in surgery and internal medicine.
