Dr. Benjamin Savard
Dr. Benjamin Savard grew up raising and breeding standard poodles, frequenting dog obedience shows, and even competing in showing competitions. He’s been drawn to the animal care world for as long as he can remember, and becoming a veterinarian has allowed him to take his passions to the next level!
Born in Wisconsin, Dr. Savard moved to Arizona before he was even a year old. Since the age of 12, he’s been working in the family business in every capacity imaginable. From 2000 to 2003, he attended Arizona State University’s pre-veterinary program, then attended Colorado State University to earn his DVM degree in 2007. After working in two Arizona animal hospitals, Dr. Savard returned to the family business and helped open Raintree Pet Resort’s very own Medical Center in 2013.
Dentistry work is Dr. Savard’s passion within veterinary medicine. Oral health is so impactful to an animal’s overall well-being, he says, and there’s something very satisfying about performing thorough dental care on a pet with a less-than-stellar mouth.
Dr. Savard and his wonderful wife Julia have four children: Elizabeth, Marie, Joshua, and Lucy. The family shares their home with Catalina, a one-year-old cat who attempts to stalk people from the middle of an open room but then races off upon realizing she’s been noticed.
Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Savard enjoys reading, playing the mandolin and guitar, skiing, and scuba diving.
