Dr. Carole Zydiak

pet health

Dr. Carole Zydiak is a New Jersey native, born and raised in nearby Hillsborough. A brownie troop field trip to a local veterinary hospital in kindergarten proved to be a life changing event when little Carole, enthralled with the hospital tour, realized she wanted to become a veterinarian.

Dr Zydiak left New Jersey after high school to join the Gators at the University of Florida where she received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1996. The sunshine, warm weather and an internship in small animal medicine and surgery kept her in the sunshine state until 2001. That's when she moved her animals across the country to do relief work in southern California before returning to Hillsborough.

Dr. Zydiak's position as a small animal general practitioner, the veterinary equivalent of a family doctor, allows her to treat all kinds of cases on a daily basis. She has developed a special interest in dermatology, ophthalmology and surgery.

Dr Zydiak is called mom by three adorable and smart 2-legged kids and also cares for multiple 4 legged kids. When Dr. Zydiak is not shuttling her kids to gymnastics and lacrosse, she can often be found outdoors, whether it be skiing, hiking, biking, running or swimming. In June, she jumped 12 feet from a ferry into the chilly Atlantic Ocean at the start of the Escape the Cape Triathlon. Her next challenge is an Olympic distance triathlon this summer although the challenge of a Spartan Race trifecta is whispering in her ear. Dr. Zydiak feels no sport is worth pursuing if there isn't some chance of mud and dirt obstacle involvement.
