Graduated from the University of Missouri in 1984. He worked with small animals and exotics for a year after graduating and then moved to a hospital specializing in orthopedics. It was after working for an emergency hospital for a few years that he decided to open his own practice in 1989. He desired a place where he could practice medicine that was in the best interests of the pet. He spends his time between Austin and Dripping Springs, making sure to get as much outdoor time as possible with his son Caleb, dog Andy Fish and cats 1X, Ginkgo, Rascal and Speedy. He has rescued parrots, horses and of course his dog and cats! Dr. Spitz has been taking some time off to spend more time with family and is taking appointments Monday through Wednesday.
