Nunda, NY VeterinarianToby Emo, DVM

Dr. Toby Emo is head veterinarian and owner of Nunda Veterinary Clinic. A native of Dansville, NY, Dr. Emo has maintained strong ties to the western New York area throughout his life.

Dr. Emo started his career at Nunda Veterinary Clinic as a veterinary assistant in 1997 after graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Animal Science. After attending Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island and earning his veterinary doctorate, Dr. Emo returned to Nunda Veterinary Clinic as an associate veterinarian. He purchased the practice in 2010 with the dream of designing a new, state-of-the art veterinary facility. Plans were well underway at the time of his passing.

With the help of his wife Ailsa—also a veterinarian—we were able to see that dream to completion in 2016 with the opening of our new building.

Dr. Emo maintained strong ties to western New York throughout his life and was passionate about serving the area. He was committed to providing the best possible veterinary care for Nunda area pets, and our new facility builds on this legacy.
