Dr. Emily Rizzo, DVM

  • Profile

Dr. Rizzo knew she wanted to be a veterinarian by the time she was five years old. She spent much of her childhood with the family dogs, cats, horses, and fish. Dr. Rizzo was raised in South Florida, where she obtained both her bachelor’s and veterinary degrees. After graduation, she moved to Maryland for a change in pace (and change in seasons). Dr. Rizzo joined West Frederick Veterinary Hospital in July 2019 and has special interests in ophthalmology and soft tissue surgery.

When not in the clinic, Dr. Rizzo likes to stay fit by going to the gym, hiking, and horseback riding. She also enjoys cooking, watching sports, trying new craft beers, and spending time with her two crazy cats, Jupiter and Groot.

Dr. Rizzo has been at West Frederick Veterinary Hospital since 2019.
