What made you want to become a vet?
When I was eight years old, I accompanied my father to the veterinarian for our family dog’s exam. After that experience, the profession “called” to me. I was always concerned about the welfare of companion animals and took it upon myself to learn about animal husbandry as I got older. The more I learned, the more I knew this was the profession meant for me.
What has been your most rewarding moment as a veterinarian?
Being able to use the gifts given to me along with my training to return pets home happy and healthy to their loving families.
If you weren’t a vet, what would you do?
I have a passion for American history, and as such, I would be a Professor of History at a university.
What animal scares you more than any other?
While technically not an animal, parasites scare me thanks to my wife’s frequent viewing of “Monsters Inside Me” on Animal Planet!
What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?
Completing my internship in emergency and critical care medicine, and having the family I do.
What do you see as the greatest danger toward household pets?
I see two great dangers towards pets; the first is dental disease and the second is toxicities, especially rodenticide and artificial sweeteners like xylitol.
What is the most exotic animal you have treated?
During my internship, I had to do surgery on an iguana that had swallowed a penny!
What is your favorite comfort food?
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Intolerance of other’s opinions and views.
