Meet The Team

Dr. Todd Bettin DVM


Dr. Bettin was born and raised just outside Lake View on the farm he and his family currently live on. He attended Lake View Auburn High School where he met his wife, Teresa. Dr. Bettin started his undergraduate college studies at Arkansas Tech University, in Russellville Arkansas for 2 years, at which time he transferred to Iowa State University where he finished his undergraduate work and married his high school sweetheart, Teresa. He was accepted to Veterinary School at ISU and graduated with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1995. He came back home to practice and raise his two daughters; Natasha and Katelyn. He found early on in his Veterinary career that he had a real love for surgery and the more challenging cases in practice. He has dedicated his professional growth and practice resources in the areas of surgery, especially orthopedics.
