Meet the NorthStar VETS Team: Dylan Fry, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology)

Dylan Fry, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology) is a doctor in the Neurology service at NorthStar VETS. In this video, he talks about how his days on a dairy farm got him into veterinary medicine, the types of cases he sees, and what drew him to NorthStar VETS to start his career.

How Dr. Fry got into Veterinary Medicine
We caught up with Dr. Fry, who was checking on a patient. Dr. Fry is a Neurologist at NorthStar VETS and was first inspired to become a veterinarian from growing up on a dairy farm. “My Uncle is a veterinarian as well, so that was a big impact. It wasn’t until after I finished undergrad at Cornell University that I decided to go back to vet school later on. I went to Cornell for undergrad and then once I decided I wanted to go to vet school, I came back to Cornell and had a great experience there for all eight years. Since vet school, I narrowed my path toward Neurology. I’ve done a specialty internship, practiced emergency medicine along the way to broaden my experience, and then started a residency at Tufts University for four years there.”

After passing board certification, Dr. Fry came to join the team at NorthStar VETS. “I had heard about NorthStar VETS early on, even before starting my residency, so it was always on the radar as a great hospital. When it came time to pick a place that I wanted to practice, I definitely had it in consideration. The biggest things that drew me were the camaraderie among the doctors (everyone seems to get along really well here and it’s a great team), state-of-the-art facilities, and everyone practices really good medicine.”

The Types of Cases Dr. Fry Sees
As a Neurologist and Neurosurgeon at NorthStar VETS, Dr. Fry sees a wide variety of cases. “I primarily see patients that are dogs or cats, and any disease relating to the brain, spine or musculature. Sometimes, those are diseases that need medical management or surgery, and we do quite a bit of MRIs here, which is our main diagnostic tool to diagnose these diseases.”

What Dr. Fry Loves about NorthStar VETS
Dr. Fry is looking forward to helping you and your pets. “It’s been great so far. I like working with the people here. It’s been a very warm welcome and we all get along very well, and the clients and patients have been great, too. I’m looking forward to more time and more experience here.”
