Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian

Dr. Toby earned a Bachelor of Science

in Animal Science from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

and his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Ross University.  After 22 years helping pets and families, he sold his hospital to focus on his specialty

service as an end of life animal doctor. 

Supporting pets and their caregivers

through the end-of-life journey requires medical and emotional support that far surpasses traditional veterinary medicine.   Dr. Toby is an active member of the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care and spoke at their annual 2019

conference in Chicago.


Southern Nevada has been home for Dr. Toby since 1995.  He has touched the lives of thousands of local families and their beloved pets. Toby is devoted to his family, loves his red and blue heelers, and is a middle of the pack distance runner.
