Dr. Holton is very involved and active in the community by his volunteer work with the ‘Meals on Wheels’ program at the DawsonvilleSeniorCenter and the Dawson County Humane Society at which he is the Vice President, a member of the Board and a volunteer veterinarian. He is also an active member of the Dawson County Rotary Club, Dawson County Chamber of Commerce and is a member of Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church.
On his time off he enjoys spending time with his wife; Patty and their twin teenage sons; James and Matthew.

Dr. Holton and his sons have also begun raising Jersey Dairy Cows and are the proud owners of H2 Jersey Farms where they enjoy caring for their ‘prized’ show cows as a family.
Dr. Holton’s favorite part of practicing veterinary medicine is that he is able to be the ‘family doctor’ for your pet and gets to know your family as well. Dr. Holton is very diverse in his knowledge of species and is able to treat and perform surgery on small animals as well as large farm animals and even a few exotics. Dr. Holton takes great pride in his community and the services he provides by having a veterinary hospital staffed with highly qualified personnel and state of the art medical equipment.
