Dr. Pike first became interested in veterinary medicine after a veterinarian treated his sick dachshund puppy when he was 16. He started volunteering at the veterinary clinic later that year and eventually worked his way into an assistant position while in college.
After graduating from SUNY Geneseo, he moved to Minneapolis to attend the University of Minnesota, College of Veterinary Medicine. In 2009, Dr. Pike purchased the Aqueduct Animal Hospital from Dr. Rapp. Since purchasing the practice, Dr. Pike has made several upgrades, expanding services to include advanced dentistry, and bringing on a board-certified veterinary surgeon, new equipment, diagnostics, and even doggy daycare.
His professional interests include small animal medicine, dentistry, dermatology, soft tissue surgery, behavior, and acupuncture.
Dr. Pike lives in Ballston Spa with his wife, son, four cats, and a dog. On May 31, 2013, Dr. and Mrs. Pike welcomed their first daughter, Sophie Quinn. When he’s not at the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife and family, watching the Yankees and the NFL. He also has been spotted on several golf courses hunting for his ball in the rough and the woods.
