April Rodriguez, DVM:
As an only child born and raised in Dallas, TX animals were always a great source of love and companionship. Her childhood dream was to become a Veterinarian. Dr. Rodriguez spent the majority of her free time finding and caring for stray animals and each held a piece of her heart. She attended SMU where she earned her undergraduate degree and then pursued her childhood dream at Ross University where she achieved her Veterinary degree in 2004. Dr. Rodriguez married one of her Vet school classmates and then relocated to New York where she and her husband began their careers in veterinary medicine. Longing to start a family of their own, after two years in NY, she and her husband once again relocated to her husband's family farm in Kimberton Pa. Her husband, Dr. Tony Rodriguez, then began his own equine ambulatory practice, Foxfield Equine in 2006, and she continued to practice small animal medicine. As an associate Veterinarian Dr. Rodriguez felt she was limited in the quality of care she could offer her patients/clients and thus made the decision to begin her own practice with her husband. Dr. Rodriguez strives to treat each patient as if they were her own and her clients with respect and compassion. She aims to offer the very best medicine and technology currently available while always keeping her patients best interest at heart. In her free time, Dr. Rodriguez enjoys spending time with all of her family, Tony (husband), Austin (son), Blake (son), Brooke (daughter) and her dogs Diesel and Tally!
