Dr. Todd Stoddard


I grew up on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, eventually moving to Halifax, then Truro to go to school. During my time at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College (Now Dal Ag), I fell in love with working with animals and wanted to be a bigger part of their care. This led me to the DVM program at the Atlantic Veterinary College. After obtaining my degree, I spent 5 years working in small animal practice in South Florida. Now back in Nova Scotia, I am very happy to be working with a great team and providing care for our local pets.

Fun fact: Covid-19 forced me to learn to sew; so now, in my free time, I can do my own alterations while my cat watches the sewing machine with great interest.
