Dr. Chris Haase

Dr. Chris has been forging paths throughout both his academic career and professional care. His interest in immunology and veterinary medicine lead him to complete dual degrees. He sought out to complete a Masters and PhD in comparative biomedical sciences with a focus in infectious disease in the feline and canine, developing vaccinations and field testing vaccinations in large animals, and developing diagnostic test for identifying infectious disease in multiple species. This was all in addition completing his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.

On top of all of Dr. Haase's accomplishments, he is also a distinguished published author on multiple different scientific studies in the Veterinary field.

Wow, Right! What does this mean for his clients?

He is sought by companies and the veterinary community to provide knowledge and information on vaccine protocols, disease management and more. Beyond his academic training he has training in surgery including general and orthopedic surgeries.

Outside of practicing veterinary medicine on both companion animals and large animals he is a business owner. He is one of the very few veterinarians that have started a veterinary business from scratch, starting with just a handful of clients and successfully building a large and expanding practice. He takes his business very serious, and strives to provide the community with trusted and respected veterinary service.
