Dr.Tina McGrathDVM/Practice Owner
Pets played an important role in my life as I was growing up – and this bond inspired me to be a veterinarian. As a veterinarian, I am blessed to live this bond every day through the pets that walk in my door. It is this connection that allows me to focus on their overall well-being in a holistic approach.
After 20 years of veterinary medicine, I chose to become certified as a pet rehabilitation therapist. This skill has expanded my ability to assist my patients in being the best, healthiest version of themselves.
At Bronte Village Animal Hospital, we believe that a healthy outside starts with a healthy inside. We use nutrition, supplements, alternative, and traditional therapies to maximize pets’ health.
My perfect day would include a hike with my dogs (Stella and Chewy) or curling up with a book next to the three purring cats in our house (Atticus, Saffy, and Hunter). I also love to cook for my family! I have a special interest in exploring recipes that are made from organic whole ingredients.
I am a very lucky person to be in the veterinary field. It combines my love of animals with a passion for medicine. I have worked for 30+ years in a dog and cat practice, and have come to work at Bronte Village Animal Hospital as I have a special place in my heart for our feline and canine friends. (I also love horses). At home I love to spend time with my cat Freya. I also horseback ride, hike and love to draw and paint.
