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.
