Emma Hirt, DVM



University College in Dublin School of Veterinary Medicine

Area of Interest


Dr. Emma Hirt joins our emergency department on July 22nd.

“I have loved animals as long as I can remember and wanting to work with animals combined with a desire to problem solve has led me into a veterinarian career. 

While helping animals has always been a passion of mine, I have also been drawing and painting from a young age. Art has shown me that I am very detail-oriented and focused on anatomy. Diagnostic imaging is all about knowing the correct anatomy in order to uncover the abnormalities that may be present. For this reason, I have taken a particular interest in that side of veterinary medicine, and as I continue to learn more and more about the different modalities (CT, Ultrasound, MRI, Radiography), my interest only grows.” 


Starting Monday, April 8th through the end of September, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) will begin their road resurfacing project along Waukegan Road from Lake Cook Road to Half Day Road (IL 22).
