Dr. Pike first became interested in veterinary medicine after a veterinarian treated his sick dachshund puppy when he was 16. He started volunteering at the veterinary clinic later that year and eventually worked his way into an assistant position while in college.
After graduating from SUNY Geneseo, he moved to Minneapolis to attend the University of Minnesota, College of Veterinary Medicine. In 2009, Dr. Pike purchased the Aqueduct Animal Hospital from Dr. Rapp. Since purchasing the practice, Dr. Pike has made several upgrades, including digital x-rays, expending the in-house laboratory, a state of the art dental machine, and new anesthesia monitoring equipment. The walls have been painted, and we’ve added doggy daycare as well.
His professional interests include small animal medicine, dentistry, dermatology, soft tissue surgery, behavior, and acupuncture.
Dr. Pike lives in Ballston Spa, with his wife, son, four cats, and a dog. On May 31st, 2013, Dr. and Mrs. Pike welcomed their first daughter, Sophie Quinn. When he’s not at the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife and family, watching the NFL, and especially the Minnesota Vikings. In the spring and summer, he also enjoys working outside in his yard and the New York Yankees.
