Dr. Hradil, DVM
I was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, with a deep passion for all animals. Early exposure to animals turned into a life-long career and caring for animals. From 1985 to 1992 I was a Veterinary Assistant at Craver Animal Hospital in Youngstown, Ohio. I graduated from Youngstown State University with a Bachelor degree in the sciences in 1992. I then graduated from Ross University in New York, New York in 1996. I am currently at Ebert Animal Hospital and glad to be a part of the Pet Vet Ohio family. I enjoy nature walks in the park, listening to good music, and singing in my church choir.
