Aimee Dalrymple, DVM, MS
Veterinarian, Adjunct Assistant Professor
Dr. Aimee Dalrymple has been practicing veterinary medicine for more than 25, the last 12 devoted to shelter medicine. She was first introduced to the world of sheltering by a wonderful feline rescue organization that sponsored her membership in the Association of Shelter Veterinarians. Since then, she has worked in a variety of shelter settings, including small rescue organizations, large nonprofit animal welfare organizations, municipal shelters, relocation programs, trap-neuter-return programs and temporary shelters for animal neglect cases. Dr. Aimee enjoys the variety and challenges of working in this unique field, and she is continually inspired by the passionate people involved in animal rescue and sheltering. She received her veterinary degree in 1995 from the Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, then in 2018 earned her master’s degree in veterinary medical sciences with a concentration in shelter medicine from the University of Florida. She has been part of the University of Florida shelter medicine distance education instructional team since 2015, teaching courses in shelter animal physical health and behavior as well as serving as an advisor to master’s degree students. Her clinical practice centers on education, with the philosophy that learning more helps us to provide better care.
