Dr. Jill Skochdopole
Dr Jill is a 1986 graduate of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. She worked for 5 years with other area veterinarians before starting Ryegate Small Animal Hospital. Her husband and his father built the clinic, which opened its doors in May of 1993. The clinic and her son and daughter have grown up together.
While she enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, surgery is of special interest. She also really enjoys the long term relationships that happen with being in one place for a long time – relationships with patients, clients, and staff.
Her time away from the clinic is spent exploring the natural world on foot, by bicycle, and in a kayak. She also enjoys cooking the food she and her husband raise, reading, knitting, and spending time with friends and family.
