Emily Christine Hoppmann, DVM
Elgin Veterinary Hospital strives to offer premier service at reasonable prices. Emily Christine Hoppmann, DVM Emily was born in Charleston, SC, but has spent most of her time in Columbia so she considers herself a Columbia native. She is happy to be practicing small animal and exotic medicine in her hometown, where she has worked in this same veterinary community since high school. She attended St. Joseph’s Catholic School for elementary school then moved onto Cardinal Newman Middle and High School. She majored in Biology and Chemistry at the University of South Carolina and was awarded her Bachelors degree magna cum laude. While in college she worked as a veterinary technician and worked in a Population Genetics Research Laboratory at the University of South Carolina studying sharks and other marine life. She did her veterinary training at the University of Georgia, where she specialized in small animal and exotic animal medicine, and was awarded her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine degree magna cum laude.
After several years in private practice working with small animals and exotics, Emily decided to go back to school to focus on her work with exotic animals. She did a year-long Internship in Exotic Animal Medicine and Surgery at Stahl Exotic Animal Veterinary Services in Virginia. This additional schooling, along with her yearly continuing education in exotics, has provided her with the knowledge she needs to best take care of all exotic species, as well as cats and dogs. She was overjoyed to join the Elgin Veterinary Hospital team in 2010 and be able to bring her specialty of exotic animal medicine to an already outstanding hospital. She is even more overjoyed now to be a practice owner and to be able to provide quality care in a warm, family-like environment. Her future goals as the practice grows are to work to become AAHA certified, to have the chance to reach out and offer services to more of the Greater Columbia area, and to be a vital member of the community in Elgin, SC.
Emily has a soft-spot in her heart for rescue animals and strongly recommends that her owners look at rescue groups and shelters to find an animal that will be perfect for their family. Emily currently has two cats that were both rescue animals and a three legged turtle that could not be released back into the wild after she had to amputate his leg due to cancer. She also is the Pre-Veterinarian Pre-Professional Advisor at the University of South Carolina. This is a position she approached the University about adding to its Pre-Professional Department as soon as she graduated from veterinary school and moved back to Columbia. Her passion for working with students has many factors including her love of the University, her love of teaching, and knowing how hard it was to have to go through college and the application process for veterinary school with no one at the University available to offer guidance. In her spare time she enjoys watching and taking part in athletic events, cooking, reading, traveling, and spending time with her friends and family. She looks forward to meeting you and your pets!
