Dr. Dixon Holland is originally from Greensboro, North Carolina, and aspired to become a veterinarian from a very young age. Having family pets throughout his childhood and spending time on his grandparent's farm motivated his desire to help animals, and after that, he began to shape his school and career path to prepare himself for veterinary school. He received his bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech in 2016 in Animal Sciences, and was lucky enough to head back to Blacksburg for four more years and earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in May 2021.
During his clinical year of veterinary school, Dr. Holland decided to explore his options on where to practice after graduation. He found himself exploring areas in Colorado and fell for Colorado Springs instantly. He joined the East Springs Animal Hospital team in July 2021 and has loved expanding his veterinary experience and clinical skills. His primary interests are in canine reproduction and small exotic mammal medicine, and he prides himself in client communication and building lasting relationships with his patients and their families. In his free time, Dr. Holland enjoys golfing, swimming, skiing, hiking, and cheering on the Virginia Tech Hokies on Saturdays with his girlfriend, Emily, and their Irish Doodle, Bruce.
