Meet our caring and compassionate veterinary care team committed to providing exceptional veterinary care.
Dr. Aaron Rhoades grew up in Bonita with many family pets and a great love for animals of all kinds, which led him to earn his DVM from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2005.
Before veterinary school, he worked with two of San Diego’s most respected exotics veterinarians. During vet school, he traveled to Africa and helped to provide medical care to many species of wildlife, worked with sea turtles off of the Carolina coast, and completed the first ever externship at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
He has worked in small animal practice in New York and in San Diego, and loves preventive care, surgery, and working with his team to provide excellent care and client communication. He offers a personalized approach to each and every dog or cat he sees. In his free time, Dr. Rhoades enjoys hiking, camping, traveling, and hanging out with his kids and all of their other family members, which include dogs, cats, chickens and tortoises.
Linda Hutchins, our Practice Manager, has been managing veterinary hospitals for over 25 years. For as long as she can remember she has loved animals and the bonds we form with them. She is proud to be a part of the veterinary field as being able to educate pet parents, enhance the human-animal bond, and bring the best health to our furry friends is a great accomplishment. She says, “We get to make a difference every single day, that’s why we do what we do.” Linda is so happy to be able to bring her experience to Town and Country Animal Hospital and to work with the amazing group of people that make up our team!
