Meet Our Doctors
DR. ROGER LIEHR, DVM
A graduate at the University of Illinois with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1975. Dr. Liehr practiced his first three years post-graduation in a busy, high-quality clinic based in New York City. Relocating to Colorado in 1978 he began helping our pets at Animal Critical Care & Emergency Services (ACCESS) before opening Foothills Animal Hospital a year later in 1979. Dr. Liehr is a Lakewood resident with his wife, Kathy, for over 30 years where they raised 3 children. Dr. Liehr loves practicing Veterinary Medicine in the beautiful Green Mountain area.
dR. TIMOTHY BILLS, DVM
Dr. Tim developed a love for animals at an early age, which was reinforced at age seven when he would occasionally “run away” (to the front of the neighborhood), waiting for his mom to get home. All the dogs in his rural neighborhood followed and joined in his solitude to lend their support. Tim went on to graduate from St. George’s University in 2015 after completing his clinical year at the University of Florida. Tim has been a practicing small animal veterinarian in Colorado since 2016. His professional interests include soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, and dermatology.
Outside of being a veterinarian, Tim loves everything that Colorado has to offer and enjoys exploring the mountains, hiking, and skiing. He also enjoys seeing live music and keeping up with the Avs, Nuggets, Rockies, and other sports. Tim loves his work and caring for the pets that come through the door!
