Brian Rizzo, DVM

Veterinarian and Partner

Joined in 2014

Dr. Brian Rizzo graduated with his veterinary degree from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. He practiced for 4 years in mixed animal medicine before becoming the attending veterinarian at Stautzenberger College in Toledo, Ohio. Wanting to serve the community he has grown to love, Dr. Rizzo returned to private practice in 2014 at Bellevue and Sandusky Animal Hospitals. He focuses his veterinary talent on surgery and anesthesia, parasitology, and client education but enjoys every aspect of his career. He feels lucky that he can come to work every day, enjoy what he does, and make a difference in an animal’s life.

When not at the hospitals, Dr. Rizzo has a very busy family life with his wife and three children. The family is rounded off with a Havannese, Sir Alfred Pennyworth, 2 cats, Beanie & Meggie, a turtle, Mr. Paddles, and a Bearded Dragon, Liz. Dr. Rizzo also enjoys fishing and America’s Roller Coast, Cedar Point!
