Over 10 Years of Veterinary Experience
Since early childhood Dr. Rod has always been drawn to animals he would regularly find and attempted to nurse back to health injured animals. Through out his early teenage years he volunteered for a small local zoo which shaped his goals for the future. These goals were later solidified when he volunteered at a monkey rehabilitation program in South Africa, there he came to the conclusion that he would apply to veterinary school. Dr. Rod Arad graduated Cum Laude from Kansas College of Veterinary Medicine, while he focused his studies on exotic and wildlife medicine. He completed an internship in exotic animal medicine at the Animal House of Chicago and completed several externships at wildlife clinics both in America and abroad. He is currently studying for his Aquatic certification and ABVP small mammal certification. Dr. Arad belongs to several veterinary organizations: The American Veterinary Medical Association, The Association of Avian Veterinarians, The Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians, The Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians, and World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Arad is always looking for alternative means of treating his patients, over the last 2 years he has been studying at the Chi institute and will be certified in the very near future.
Dr. Rod started RAAM Innovative Veterinary solutions after working in the field for more than a decade and seeing areas where he can improve the quality of care. RAAM was founded with the premise that we can offer concierge convenient quality veterinary care and local/international outreach programs. Dr. Arad is very passionate about education and attends multiple educational symposiums throughout the year in the united states and abroad. He has a strong interest in exotic animal medicine and hopes to become Board certified in Avian and Reptile/Amphibian in the next few years. While studying for his exams he hopes to use his skills to help non profit animal welfare organizations.
Dr Arad and his wife live in Massachusetts with their dog Max and three cats Sidaya, Zambo, and Jinxie. They have a steady stream of injured/convalescing creatures that pass through there home on their way to their forever homes. In his spare time Dr Rod practices several forms of martial arts, reading and hiking.
