Dr. Zachary Carroll was born in Elgin, Illinois and moved to Louisiana in 1996 where he attended St. Catherine of Siena and graduated from Bother Martin High school in 2004. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal, Dairy, and Poultry Science from Louisiana State University in 2008. He earned his DVM at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2012 and completed his clinical year at Auburn University in 2011.
Following veterinary school, he completed a one-year rotating internship at MedVet New Orleans. Dr. Carroll feels that his internship not only gave him the opportunity to work closely with boarded specialists, but also helped him gain invaluable knowledge and experience.
In 2014, he joined the team at Ark Animal Hospital where his goal has been to provide the best patient care possible. His philosophy is to treat each patient as if it were his own pet. Dr. Carroll’s practice interests include internal medicine, ultrasound, soft tissue surgery, anesthesia/pain management, and oncology.
Outside of the hospital, Dr. Carroll enjoys spending time with his wife Alida, their son Conrad, daughter Blair, and their pets, Dixie and Roux. You may see Roux at the clinic—she loves to come play every day! In addition, Dr. Carroll loves to be outdoors, whether it is golfing or attending a music festival.
