Rio Vista Veterinary Hospital, we care


Dear Friends or Rio Vista Veterinary Hospital,

This letter is to introduce you to Dr. Stephanie Dodds, who has joined the practice and will be taking over for me, as the time has come to move on to other adventures in life. This decision comes with mixed emotions as I have known so many of you all my life and have dedicated the last 44 years to Rio Vista.

I have searched long and hard to find someone who practices with the same expertise and care you have come to expect from me. I fully support Dr. Dodds in her new capacity as your pet’s veterinarian and hope you will also.

Dr. Dodds also grew up in Steuben county and is very excited to be offering veterinary services close to her home and family. She attended the Atlantic Veterinary college in Prince Edward Island, Canada for her doctors in veterinary medicine.

Dr. Dodds has a vast array of knowledge of all species including companion animals, exotics including potbellied pigs, and farm animals. Dr. Dodds will continue to provide laser therapy, digital imaging, digital thermal evaluations, surgery, electrocardiograms, and laboratory analysis. She will be offering new services in acupuncture, chiropractic, and ultrasound imaging.

I have really enjoyed all of my clients and patients over the years. I will miss all of you. I strongly encourage you to continue to choose Rio Vista for all of your veterinary and boarding needs. Dr. Dodds and the staff are excited to continue to provide your pets with compassionate and quality veterinary care.

We look forward to seeing you,

The Doctors and Staff of Rio Vista.

Dr. Dodds

It is with great pleasure to announce the addition of veterinarian Dr. Stephanie Dodds to our team here at Rio Vista Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Dodds will be joining us in early August and is accepting new patients.

Dr. Dodds is a native of Steuben county and grew up in Cohocton, NY. She attended Alfred State College for her associates in Vterinary Technology followed by the State University of New York at Geneseo for her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. She then went on to attend the Atlantic Veterinary Collage at the University of Prince Edward Island, PEI Canada where she earned her Doctors of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Dodds has a vast array of knowledge of all species including companion animals, exotics including pot bellied pits, and farm animals. She will be offering new services in acupuncture as well as chiropractic; two great alternative medicine modalities that can be incorporated into our current cold therapy laser treatments. Dr. Dodds is also proficient at soft tissue general surgery, internal medicine and geriatric care. Dr. Dodds will also be offering ultrasound imaging services to our practice in the coming months.

Dr. Dodds shares her life with her 12 year old beagle named Snape, her 12 week old kitten named Simon, a small flock of Cochin chickens, and a large number of honey bees. She enjoys an array of outdoor activities including gardening, Kayaking, and snow shoeing.
