Lakeland Animal Hospital Staff Profiles

Dr. Dave Billig, DVM

After graduating from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1988 I practiced in central Ohio on both large and small animals.  In 2011 I moved to this area with my wife, three boys, and our dog Boots.  We enjoy the welcoming people and safe environment here.  In our free time we enjoy watching our boys compete in their favorite sports, gardening, hiking and other outdoor activities.
