Dr. Billy Kowalski

Dr. Billy Kowalski is the veterinarian and owner of Harbor Springs Vet. Dr. Billy’s favorite part of being a veterinarian is developing a bond with families and their beloved pets. He has been serving the Tampa Bay area as a veterinarian in Westchase for the past three years. Prior to moving to the Tampa community, Dr. Billy graduated from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014 and began practicing veterinary medicine in Las Vegas, Nevada. His professional interests include, but are not limited to, dentistry, surgery, senior pet care and dermatology.

Dr. Billy grew up in a family who owned and operated their own business in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. He has always dreamed of owning and operating his own animal hospital and he has finally made that dream a reality.

Dr. Billy has two Labradors, Sam and Banana. You may meet them next time you are at our hospital, as they often love coming to work with their dad! Don’t be surprised if Banana brings you a tennis ball! These two enjoy beach days with their family and they are always looking forward to their evening walk with mom and dad.

In addition to spending our time taking care of our local community’s pets, we here at Harbor Springs Vet are big proponents of enjoying all that our beautiful Tampa Bay area has to offer. On the weekends, you can find us exploring the area, spending time at the beach, enjoying sports, and catching up with family and friends.
