A genuine interest in all animal varieties is apparent when reading about Dr. Beale’s veterinary career. Prior to completing his degree, Dr. Beale worked for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management in Oregon, tracking spotted owls, flying squirrels, osprey and golden eagles. He later worked with Dr. Melody Roelke and the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission on the Florida Panther Project. The project, in cooperation with the Smithsonian Institution and the National Zoo, involved many aspects of veterinary care and scientific study of Florida panthers.
Beginning his veterinary career as a technician in an emergency clinic in Central Florida, he feels his many years as a veterinary technician helps him appreciate the importance of each Pet Team Member. He continued working as a veterinary technician throughout college. Dr. Beale earned two undergraduate degrees, one in zoology and the other in microbiology, from the University of Central Florida. He received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Florida.
Feeling he does his best work in this stimulating environment, Dr. Beale has been a valuable member of the Pet Care Team at Animal Specialty & Emergency Center since 1996. He enjoys the challenges of emergency and critical care medicine, both the routine and the unexpected. “I am very proud of the level of care we are able to provide here.”
