Evelyn P. Rice, DVM
Dr. Evelyn, as she is known, grew up with a strong love of riding and horses in general. She also grew up wanting to help animals. After finishing her Bachelor's of Science, she took the opportunity to train horses under a natural horsemanship trainer full time for a few years. While there she also worked part time for an equine veterinarian. It was during this time that she realized she could meld her two loves in life and be an equine veterinarian.
After graduating from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, she worked at an equine only clinic, where she gained valuable experience working with performance horses. Since purchasing Miller Animal Hospital with her husband in 2010 she has been practicing for a few special clients and managing the clinic. She is VERY excited to be back to doing what she loves. She believes in practicing whole horse medicine and working with clients to achieve what they want and need from their horse. Dr Evelyn and her husband Dr Rice have three children together and have a small farm where they enjoy their dogs, cats, horses, goats....
