She joined the Oxford Veterinary Hospital in 2015, after practicing at Oakland Animal Hospital in Rochester for over 15 years.
Dr. Matyas has many years of experience in small animal medicine and surgery and has special interests in dentistry, as well as, cardiac and abdominal ultrasound. She has completed several advanced training courses in these areas. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Michigan Veterinary Medical Association, Southeastern Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association.
Dr. Matyas resides in Oxford, Michigan with her husband , two sons, three dogs and two cats. All of her pets are also rescues. Kobi is a three-legged mixed breed from South Carolina who has a very interesting rescue story and now enjoys life as a couch potato. Violet’s mother was saved from the harsh MI winter in Pontiac and taken into Michigan Animal Rescue League to have her puppies. She was brought into the Matyas household when she was 4 months old and now is a 60lb bundle of energy. Olive came from our friends at K9 Stray Rescue in Oxford. She is the first little dog in the group and is a Chihuahua mix. The three dogs are allowed to share the house under close supervision of two sibling cats, raised from bottle-fed orphans, named Stella and Spike.
Dr. Matyas enjoys reading, cooking, sports, and being involved in her sons’ school activities. She has served the Oxford community by being on the school PTO board along with being the treasurer for her neighborhood association. She loves Oxford and you will often see her about town or riding her bike to the office.
