Dr. Diana Haight has been working in veterinary medicine since she was 16 years old. She can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to do everything in her power to better the lives of pets and their owners. Dr. Haight is thankful every day for the opportunity to do what she truly loves! Now, she’s thrilled to bring her expertise to the Lagrange area as she cares for pets and their owners here at Billings Animal Hospital.
Dr. Haight is originally from Mahopac, New York and earned her Veterinary Technician’s degree at the State University of New York-Delhi. Next, she attended the State University of New York-Oswego to earn her Bachelor’s degree in zoology before heading off to veterinary school. Dr. Haight attended Ross University’s School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating with honors before launching her career in private practice.
Dr. Haight opened her first animal clinic, Dutchess County Animal Hospital, in 2001 a year after the birth of her first baby girl. Later that same year, she gave birth to twin girls! Dr. Haight purchased Billings Animal Hospital in 2020 and couldn’t be happier to practice her special brand of small animal medicine at a second location. As a veterinarian, she is particularly fond of preventative care and surgical work—Dr. Haight loves to help her patients feel better fast.
In her spare time, Dr. Haight enjoys spending time with her family and pets, reading, and watching movies. She was even cast as an extra in two German movies that were filmed in the Hudson Valley!
