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 and cats 1X, Rascal and Speedy, rescue parrots, and horses! 

As the owner of Lake Austin Blvd Animal Hospital for 31 years, starting August 1st, Dr Spitz is taking a sabbatical. We are excited that the team of Doctors are able to take care of the patients & clients for Dr Spitz to have time to get some rest and refreshment. 

LABAH has an amazing internal team of Doctors, staff, and leadership in ways that make this sabbatical possible. We are grateful for the hard work and trust from both the LABAH team and you, our friends that make this break a reality.
