Practice Owner, Chief of Medicine - Lindsay Ruland, DVM

She is an Ann Arbor native who attended Huron High School (class of 2002), then Eastern Michigan University where she majored in Biology, and was accepted to Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in her Junior year of undergraduate studies. After graduating from MSU CVM in 2009 Dr. Ruland began immediately working in emergency medicine - her true passion in the field of veterinary medicine. On July 4, 2012 she opened Emergency Veterinary Hospital with her husband, Chris Ruland.  Her interests in veterinary medicine include surgery and critical care medicine.
