Dr. Wilson finished veterinary training at Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1985 and worked in Benton Harbor Michigan his first two years out of school. From their he went to a small animal practice in South Bend, IN and also worked at Potawatomi Zoo and Notre Dame University. He owned his first practice in the Detroit area from 1978 until 2003 when he felt the draw back to western Michigan. He opened a practice in Holland, MI and lived in the little town of Hamilton. He likes a lot of the things the big city has to offer but is most at home in a small town.
Married since 1976, Dr. Wilson and his wife have five children. His eldest son is a also a veterinarian, working in eastern Michigan. Dr. Wilson’s special interests include cooking, gardening and landscaping. He loves music of all kinds, building and fixing things, and most of all, being with people.
In 2011 the Butts brothers decided to sell and a mutual acquaintance suggested that Dr. Wilson look into the possibility, and the rest is history.
“I am still fascinated by the world of medicine and what we can do to make our pets lives better and longer,” says Dr. Wilson, “and a tail wag or purr still gets me every time.”
