Dr. Timothy Guild
Dr. Timothy Guild was a young boy when he made up his mind that he would help pets as a veterinarian someday. His passion simply never wavered! Dr. Guild doesn’t take for granted the opportunity to help not only pets, but their loving owners as well. He’s the proud owner and operator of Orion Animal Care Center.
A native of northern Michigan, Dr. Guild learned the ropes of the profession in his uncle’s veterinary clinic during his high school and early college years. He earned his undergraduate degree in science from Michigan State University, then obtained his veterinary degree at Ross University’s School of Veterinary Medicine on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. After completing his clinical work at a large animal hospital in Chicago to learn advanced procedures along board-certified veterinarians, Dr. Guild graduated and returned to Michigan to launch his career as a licensed veterinarian.
As a vet, Dr. Guild particularly likes surgical procedures, but the most rewarding part of his job is developing lasting relationships with the area’s pet owners. Helping to ensure a pet’s good health for a lifetime is extremely rewarding!
When he’s not at work, Dr. Guild can be found golfing—he recently played in Scotland on the first 18-hole golf course ever created!—or spending time with his family and pets. He and his wife, Betsy, have two kids named Ellie and Henry, and the family has one pet: Woody, an Irish Setter whose antics can always brighten up even the gloomiest day.
