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.
