Dr. Rod Arad ("Dr. Rod"), our Chief of Staff, joined our team in October 2013 with an enthusiastic interest in all aspects of canine, feline, avian, and exotic medicine. He interned at our sister hospital, the Animal House of Chicago, and practiced under Dr. Byron de la Navarre, an internationally respected reptile specialist. Dr. Rod is also a member of the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV), Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians (AEMV), Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians (ARAV).
In his time at Littleton Animal Hospital, Dr. Rod has already developed many close relationships with both clients and patients, quickly becoming a requested veterinarian by those that receive his care. Outside of work, he likes to travel, hike and study martial arts. Dr. Rod lives with his three dogs, four cats and his wife Claudia.
