He earned his bachelor’s in Veterinary Science from the University of Minnesota and was awarded with the H.C.H.

While in vet school, he completed externships at the VCA Referral Center in Chicago, Westvet Specialty and Emergency Center in Boise and the Medvet Specialty and Emergency Hospital in Columbus.
After graduation, Dr. Chad completed an intensive, rotating internship in specialty and emergency medicine at the Westvet Specialty and Emergency Center in Boise, Idaho, where he gained considerable experience in small animal internal medicine, surgery, emergency, and critical care.
