Dr. BonvillainKatherine Bonvillain, DVM

Dr. Katherine Bonvillain joined the veterinary team at Hill Country Animal Hospital in June 2016. She is originally from Lake Charles, LA, and since she could talk, Dr. Bonvillain remembers begging for a dog. When she was four, her dad brought home a Brittany Spaniel puppy. By the time she was 12, her family had three dogs, 20 chickens, a rabbit and a goat. She bought her first dog, Max, when she was 13-years-old and he's been Dr. Bonvillain's best friend for over 13 years.

She says, "I started out to be a veterinarian because I loved animals, but I stuck it out because Max is a beloved part of my family. And I want to take care of other's family pets with the same loving care and commitment that I do my own."

Dr. Bonvillain completed her undergraduate education at Louisiana Tech University. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with a concentration in pre-veterinary medicine along with a minor in chemistry. Dr. Bonvillain earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2016.

A member of the Louisiana Veterinary Medical Society and the American Veterinary Medical Society, Dr. Bonvillain is professionally interested in internal medicine, geriatric care, dermatology and soft tissue surgery. She says the most satisfying part of being a veterinarian is helping other people give their pets the best care possible, and helping herders care for their livestock in order to care for their families.

At home, Dr. Bonvillain has a 13 year-old Miniature Schnauzer named Max who has the beginnings of doggie dementia; Izzy, a 13 year-old Miniature Schnauzer, with Cushing's disease and kidney failure; Goose, a 3 year-old Orange Tabby who loves stealing pony-tail holders; and Princess Peach (aka Peaches), a rescue Himalayan mix, who loves a good lap nap and sneezing in your face. She enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, reading, going to the movies or a play, hiking, hunting and fishing.

Dr. TothAmy Toth, DVM

Dr. Amy Toth joined the veterinary team at Hill Country Animal Hospital in November 2015. Born and raised in Austin, TX, Dr. Toth knew she wanted to become a veterinarian the moment she got her first pet—a tiny, furry, beautiful Yorkipoo named Poopek. She says, "I experienced the intense bond that someone could have with their animal. I still do not take for granted that incredible, unique bond, and I take pride in helping to conserve it between people and their own pets every day."

Dr. Toth's father is a practicing veterinarian in Austin, and during her childhood she spent time at his clinic, which she considered a second home. Dr. Toth earned a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science in 2009 from Texas A&M University. She attended Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2013.

A member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Texas Veterinary Medical Association, Dr. Toth is professionally interested in surgery, internal medicine and dentistry. Her favorite part of being a veterinarian is being welcomed into people's families and becoming a part of the relationship between a person and their pet.

At home, Dr. Toth has a tortoiseshell Persian cat named Turtle and a white Persian cat named Dutch. She loves to run, and enjoys spending time reading, gardening and doing yoga.
