Meet the Staff
Dr. Kiran Singh
“I am a 2002 graduate of Punjab Agricultural University in India. I love Veterinary Medicine because having families with happy and healthy pets is the ultimate reward. I have had several years of general practice as well as Emergency Medicine. I have spent the last several years of my career in a leadership roles, helping manage hospitals and train young veterinarians. I love watching people learn to do something and then see them succeed at it. I enjoy Internal Medicine and advanced soft tissue surgery. I have a focus on the best care for pets, from puppy/kittenhood to their senior days, with emphasis on preventative care, diet and nutrition. Having grown up in Lake County, it is so important that I am able to be back here, giving back to the community. It is very important to me that pet owner be an active part of their pet’s healthcare team. I currently live in Mettawa with my husband, son, and our cat Dasher.”
Gerardo Acevedo – CSR Manager
“I started working in veterinary clinics in 2010 taking care of furry friends of all types as a kennel technician. Not long after beginning this position, I worked my way towards the treatment area and began assisting and observing in small procedures. For the last 7 years I have continued to work hard to improve my skills as a veterinary assistant before finding my forever home at Townline Animal Hospital. I work closely with Dr. Singh to further my education and learning so I can help give the best care possible to all patients. My passion for animals and determination to grow in the veterinary field is what keeps me motivated everyday at Townline Animal Hospital. In my free time I like to take my pitbull, Blue, for walks and play with him as much as possible due to his high energy. I also love to cook and spend quality time with my family.”

I started working in veterinary medicine back in 2012 as a practice manager and have loved it ever since. I have worked as a practice manager at a few different hospitals, but I have found my home here at Townline Animal Hospital. I have always had a passion for animals and have always wanted to work with animals and what better way is there then to help keep them healthy, help make them feel better, and to watch them grow up.
