  • Michael Witherspoon, DVM

    Veterinarian
    Dr. Michael P. Witherspoon was born in Danville, IL, to proud parents Michael D. and Debra Witherspoon. A Danville native, Michael attended Liberty, East Park, North Ridge, and Danville High Schools (Class of 2002). While he can't remember the exact time the choice was made, becoming a vet has been his dream from about the age of eleven. Michael obtained his Bachelors of Science in Animal Sciences from The University of Illinois in 2006 and later proceeded to the U of I's College of Veterinary Medicine to obtain his DVM in 2012. Sadly, Michael's father who had been on of the biggest supporters of Michael's dreams passed away four months before he could see his son graduate. Michael moved back to Danville to be with his family and friends and serve the pets of the community that helped raise him.

    As a child, Michael's hobbies were reading, biking, comic books, writing, walking his dogs, being in nature, video games, and napping in the sun. In truth not much of that has changed. To unwind Michael like to walk his dogs or go for long drives. Gas prices make sure his dogs get plenty of exercise. Michael shares his home and his walks with three large dogs; Freya - a female Mala-Mutt, Baldr- a male pit bull mix, and Brody- a male yellow lab mix. He also has one cat, Nyha- a mean chubby blue cat who won't let him own any other cats :). Michael also spends a lot of time with his mother's small pack of chihuahuas and cats. He adores all animals but has a soft spot for ones that remind him of his childhood pets; Arctic breed dogs and pure white cats.

    Dr. Witherspoon has a special interest in behavior and training and their applications in veterinary medicine as well as control over pet overpopulation. He particularly enjoys the opportunity to share stories with clients about their pets and takes pride in trying to educate owners as best as he can about any aspect of their pets care. There is not much else to tell, Dr. Witherspoon is just a quiet nerd with an odd sense of humor who loves animals and his home town, and is looking forward to helping both in any way he can.
