Dr. Beale knew he was going to be a vet since he was 9 years old. His original inspiration came from his Grandparents. Growing up he often spent his weekends at their home, covered in drool from playing with their English Mastiffs and Saint Bernards. In a recent article (American Humane), Dr. Beale wrote that his grandparents taught him the importance of the human-animal bond and the responsibility we have to give our pets the best care possible.
Dr. Beale’s passion is education. He has spent a large portion of his career teaching in hands-on surgery labs and speaking at large conferences. Dr. Beale co-authored Small Animal Arthroscopy, an industry-defining textbook on orthopedics. He has written many other published articles and book chapters on specialized care.
Dr. Beale received his DVM & completed his residency at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. After his board certification, he joined Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in 1992 and practiced there until 2019. In 2020, Dr. Beale founded BVSE with Dr. Mark Besancon.
Dr. Beale loves being a vet because he feels like he doesn’t have to work a day in his life. He enjoys spending his free time with his 3 kids, Isabel, Danielle, and Jared, and his wife, Mary.
Dr. Beale loves the Houston Zoo and has worked with their expert team of veterinarians on many occasions. Lions, sea turtles, monkeys, sloths, and kangaroos are only a few of the animals Dr. Beale has worked with.
Dr. Beale costarred on NetGeoWILD’s hit series, Animal ER, and he even hosted his own radio show, Your Pet’s Health, which aired on Houston KTRH 740.
