Dr. Molly Duffy

Dr. Molly Duffy grew up in Muskegon, MI. Her love for animals started at a young age. She grew up with multiple dogs and a cat. She also competed and trained dressage horses. After high school, she was determined to move to Oklahoma to officially become a Sooner. In college at OU, she studied Zoology with a focus on pre-veterinary studies. After graduating, she began veterinary school at Ross University in the West Indies on the island of St. Kitts. While in veterinary school, she was president of the veterinary golf club. She also became scuba certified and loves to shark dive. She moved back to the United States and performed her clinical rotations at Colorado State University. During that time she focused much of her studies on equine reproduction.

Upon graduation she started her veterinary career at Vista Equine Colorado, practicing in all aspects of equine reproduction. She was able to assist in oocyte aspiration, embryo transfer and stallion collection. After being away from her family in Oklahoma for six years, she decided to move back to be closer to home. At that time she began her career at Banfield Pet Hospital, focusing on small animal medicine. As a small animal doctor, she loved being able to see a variety of cases and perform surgery. In 2020, she became licensed as a certified veterinary medical acupuncturist through Cura Core Academy for all animals. She is excited to be a part of the Waterloo Animal Hospital team and work with both small and large animals.

In her free time, Dr. Duffy loves to ride her horse, Athena. She also has a doghter, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Lilly.
