Dr. William Kidd
Dr. Bill Kidd’s interest in veterinary medicine started at an early age. He had an interest in science and a love for animals. Combining the two to help people solve their pet’s medical problems motivated him to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Bill graduated from U.C. Davis with an undergraduate degree in physiology and continued his studies at UCD where he attained his veterinary medical degree.
After working for several veterinary practices, Bill had certain ideals of how he wanted to run his practice. The opportunity to own Moraga Veterinary Hospital became available in 1977. Moraga seemed a natural fit because he lived in the area, and loved the community. He remains a local resident and along with his wife Susan, they have raised three sons.
Dr. Ian Kidd
Dr. Ian Kidd grew up in Lafayette surrounded by dogs and cats, and from an early age developed an appreciation for animals. After graduating from Campolindo High School in 2001, Ian moved on to Lewis & Clark College to study biology which piqued his interest in medicine. During his time at college, Ian spent countless hours at the Oregon Health and Science University’s hospital to gain a feel for human medicine as well as a small animal veterinary practice in Portland, OR. After three years, Ian decided that veterinary medicine was a better fit and was accepted at Massey University’s veterinary school in New Zealand. After graduating in 2008, Ian returned to the U.S. to do a rotating small animal internship at East Bay Veterinary Specialists in Walnut Creek. Ian joined Moraga Veterinary Hospital in January of 2010 and lives in Moraga with his wife Janel, 2 year old twins Owen and Katie, and a yellow Labrador named Russell.
