Steve Zachar, DVM

Dr. Steve was born and raised in Chicago where he earned a B.S. in Biology/Ecology at Loyola University. Inspired by his love for all creatures great and small, he went on to pursue his DVM degree from the University of Illinois. Upon graduation he worked at a busy 24-hour walk-in/emergency clinic in a Chicago suburb for two years before relocating to Colorado for the serene nature and year-round outdoor activities.

Over the course of his education, Dr. Steve took full advantage of many experiential learning opportunities, having spent time studying ecology in Costa Rica, environmental science in Australia, wildlife medicine in Zimbabwe, and volunteering at an animal shelter in Greece. Outside of veterinary medicine, he enjoys playing ice hockey, seeing live music, skiing/snowboarding, and exploring the mountains with his veterinarian girlfriend and their two goofy retriever mixes, Simba and Kemp.

Dr. Steve is very passionate about geriatric and end-of-life pet care and feels honored to serve as a member of the Caring Pathways Team. He believes that a peaceful, comfortable passing is the greatest gift we can give to our beloved companions after they have spent their entire lives loving us unconditionally.
