Dr. Mark “Chip” Gallagher was born and raised in Roswell, Georgia, and attended the University of Georgia for both his undergraduate studies and veterinary education. Having spent his childhood exploring the rolling hills of the Piedmont and fishing the saltwater flats and shallows of Florida, Dr. Gallagher obtained a bachelor’s degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Management from UGA’s Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources in 2016. He was then accepted into UGA’s College of Veterinary Medicine, where he received his doctorate in 2020 after tracking in both small animal medicine and zoological medicine.
Dr. Gallagher spent his years at UGA’s College of Veterinary Medicine as the manager of the University’s Wildlife Treatment Crew, and he continues to have a deep appreciation for wildlife conservation and exotic animal practice. Additionally, Dr. Gallagher harbors a passion for the companion animal specialties of Internal Medicine, Neurology, and Cardiology. He strongly believes in a systemic approach to medicine and seeks to gain as clear and complete a picture as possible to help identify and implement the best treatment available for his patients. Dr. Gallagher moved to Denver in June 2020 with his wife Erin and orange tabby Todd. He and his family have fallen in love with the Rocky Mountains and couldn’t imagine a life spent away from the adventures and escapes Colorado has to offer.
