Dr. Zale is a Colorado native and graduated from Evergreen High School in 1977. In the 80s he attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins. He received a bachelor's degree in Microbiology in 1984 and DVM in 1988. Dr. Zale worked at Mission Viejo Animal Hospital after graduation. He started Pet Clinic, in Fort Collins, in 1990 and built a three-doctor practice from scratch. The clinic worked closely with the Larimer County Humane Society, starting an early spay program that reduced the stray animal population to 7,590 in the Fort Collins / Loveland area. The clinic was sold in 2001 and Dr. Zale moved back to Evergreen.
Chad never envisioned himself in the veterinary industry, as his heart lies with gold prospecting. He has been seen on Animal Planet's Ice Cold Gold. When recognized in the community in his beloved Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, it's either for his international stardom, or uncensored sense of humor from local Facebook communities.
Chad is the caretaker of all things: feeding the pets at home, the crew at the office, grocery shopper, errand runner, kid commuter, and maintenance guy- when he gets around to it!! A jack of all trades, and master of many. Here he is, living the dream as the veterinarian's husband, supporting Dr. Sheila in business and life!
