Dr. Timothy Hutson is a St. Louis native who graduated with a BA in Biological Sciences from SLU in 2008. After 18 months of lab work in medical research at Washington University, he decided to forgo a career in human medicine and instead chose a career in veterinary medicine. He applied to the veterinary college at UMC and graduated in May 2013. Upon graduation, Dr. Tim decided to join My Best Friend, having been impressed and pleased to see their commitment to high quality medicine, along with their wonderful clientele. He brings with him special interest in dermatology, dentistry, and nutrition, and loves talking with clients about these topics. Dr. Tim took over the Clinic in 2018 from Dr. Bill, who is now enjoying his well-deserved retirement in sunny Florida!

Dr. Tim enjoys fishing, woodworking, bonsai, and playing ice hockey in his free time. He is also an avid fan of the Cardinals and Blues. Most of all, he loves spending time with his family. Dr. Tim and his wife, Irina, have 2 children, Anna and Cameron. They also have two furry children, a French bulldog named “Corndog” (named by their daughter), and a sassy cat named “Rosie”.
