Dr. Ben’s veterinary experience and love for animals began early in life when he started working at his dad’s veterinary practice at the age of 8. He holds a Bachelors of Science degree from The Ohio State University and a Doctorate degree in Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University. He has practiced veterinary medicine in Queensland, Australia and completed a preceptorship in Miami, Florida. He graduated from a small animal rotating internship at the prestigious Animal Medical Center in New York City. From New York, Dr. Ben moved to Miami Beach, Florida and began a relief service company and mobile veterinary practice. He holds veterinary licenses in the states of New York, Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas, Colorado, and Alabama. Dr. Ben has since moved back to his home state of Pennsylvania where he has maintained a busy relief and shelter work schedule. Seasonally, Dr. Ben is a registered veterinarian for the State of Pennsylvania and works at Presque Isle Downs with the racehorses.
Dr. Ben is 100% dedicated to his clients and the pets that they love. He is very passionate about this great profession as well as building relationships with owners and their animal friends. He has special interests in surgery, radiology, and dentistry.
In his spare time, Dr. Ben enjoys traveling with his wife, Claudia, and son, Nolan, long distance bicycle-riding with his dachshund, Vienna, lounging with his two kitties, Bosco and Rosco, and “walking the walk” of a man of God.
