Doctors Michael Bottorff and Vijaya Nareddy comprise the professional staff at East Lawn Animal Hospital. Each of our veterinarians has a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University. Dr. Bottorff graduated in 1978 and has decades of experience.


Raised in Sac City, Dr. Bottorff is the son of a veterinarian who practiced large animal care. Dr. Bottorff became involved in his father's practice during childhood, fostering early veterinary learning and a deep appreciation for the well-being and importance of animals in our lives. He learned that our relationship with animals is the greatest influence on their health. This is how East Lawn Animal Hospital was founded.


After graduating with his DVM, Dr. Bottorff spent 6 years developing his skills in Hollywood, Florida, at a large referral clinic. Here he learned that anything is possible in the way of advanced veterinary medicine. He also affirmed that being a good veterinarian is a lifelong commitment, and that there is something new to be learned every day.


Dr. Bottorff partners with his wife, Tina, who handles our office and operations management. Dr. Bottorff and his wife have a daughter, Alyssa, who is sixteen, and also dreams of becoming a veterinarian. Although far from being realized, her dream allows her to gain valuable experience helping out at the clinic. Dr. Bottorff and his family receive a great amount of joy being involved in people's lives through their pets. At the end of the day, we try and do our best to return just a piece of the love our pets give us. We view it as an honor to be a part of their and their owners' lives.


Dr. Nareddy received her veterinary medical degree from India and a Master's degree from the College of Veterinary Medicine, Kansas State University.  She also completed a one year internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Miami Veterinary Specialists in Florida, where she gained extensive training in managing complex medical and surgical cases. She joined East Lawn Animal Hospital in 2014. She has special interests in preventive medicine, emergency medicine, managing chronic diseases, pain management and soft tissue surgeries. Dr. Nareddy lives in Fort Dodge with her family and enjoys traveling and spending time with friends and family.
