Thomas W. Gill, DVM

Practice Owner


​​Dr. Thomas Gill is a graduate of Hamilton College and the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating from veterinary college in 1984, Dr. Gill worked in mixed animal practices in Lebanon, PA, and Syracuse, NY, before moving to Cayuga County in 1988. Brookside Veterinary Clinic originated out of Dr. Gill's home and eventually moved to its present facilities in Auburn in 1996.  Dr. Gill has a particular interest in small animal surgery.


Family plays an important part in Dr. Gill's life. He is one of eight children and he and his wife, Cecelia, have seven children; obviously the Gill household is active and just a little bit noisy!  Other members of the Gill family currently include 17 chickens, a Quarter horse mare named “Joy”, a Jersey/Holstein cross cow named “Daisy”, a Shih Tzu puppy named “Millie” and two slightly clueless cats named “Stella” and “Fat Sally”.  Dr. Gill loves to spend time reading, traveling, dreaming about traveling, and spending time with his family.
