Dr. Mandy Hoyt graduated with honors from Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. Prior to that, she received her BS in Microbiology at the University of Iowa. Originally from Iowa, Dr. Hoyt has practiced in Texas, California and Illinois but her heart lies in the Midwest. Growing up, she took care of all the family pets from turtles to birds to dogs and cats, so it was only natural her path lead to veterinary medicine. She has an interest in internal medicine and loves dermatology cases. Dr. Hoyt resides in Homer Glen with her husband and six pets, including two dogs, an ornery beagle mix named Cooper, an Australian Shepherd named Jackson and four cats. When not at the clinic, she enjoys time outside including hiking, fitness, reading and starting her garden.
