Dr. Ryan Millington, DVM

Dr. Ryan Millington, DVM

Medical Director

Dr. Ryan Millington grew up in Karnes City, Texas, just south of San Antonio. His time was spent doing all the things a good ole’ Texas boy does: all available sports, hunting, fishing, and working hard with friends through hay hauling, mowing yards, and construction work. It was through those experiences that he learned the value of a good team, being part of a community, and a solid work ethic to serve those in his community.

Dr. Millington moved to the big city of Austin in 1998 to attend the University of Texas at Austin and went on to graduate from St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine in Grenada in 2007. The majority of his 10+ years as a veterinarian have been spent practicing emergency medicine, but he has also worked as a relief veterinarian, as well as a house-call veterinarian. These experiences have molded him into a well-rounded practitioner who has seen a wide variety of cases. But more importantly, they taught Dr. Millington the value of clear communication and complete honesty with clients.

As a veterinarian, Dr. Millington has a particular interest in pain management, soft tissue surgery, and emergency medicine. When not practicing medicine, he can be found pursuing his other interests such as coaching youth lacrosse, training for the next endurance race, and working on his archery game.

Dr. Millington is very excited to be part of the leadership team at Firehouse Belterra Village and to begin serving the community of Southwest Austin and Dripping Springs.

Kaitlin moved from South Carolina to Texas in 2008 and hasn’t looked back, (partly because Texas has WAY better tacos). She graduated from Texas State University in 2017 with a degree in Psychology.

Here, she has taken a special interest in client communication, patient relationships, and will soon obtain her Fear-Free Certification, a method that creates a better experience for pets by reducing stressors within a hospital setting.
