Dr. Nuno Carreiro, DVM

Dr. Nuno Carreiro grew up in Southeastern Massachusetts and began his animal science studies while attending Bristol County Agricultural High School.  After high school, his interest in horses led him to attend the Stockbridge School of Agriculture Equine Studies Program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst where he gained a solid foundation in general horsemanship.  In order to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian, he continued at the University of Massachusetts Amherst where he completed the pre-veterinary curriculum through the Veterinary and Animal Sciences department and was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in 2001. During his undergraduate studies, Dr. Carreiro became involved in various research projects which led him to stay at the University working with Cynthia Baldwin, Ph.D and Samuel Black, Ph.D.and completing an MS degree in 2002.  Dr. Carreiro went on to earn his DVM from Colorado State University.  His interest in research followed him throughout veterinary school and he was chosen to participate in the Merial Veterinary Scholars Program.

After graduating from veterinary school, he and his wife relocated to the Eastern Shore of Virginia where he spent nearly seven years practicing in a busy mixed-animal practice.  While in Virginia he also had the privilege of being on the veterinary team that provided veterinary care to the world-famous Chincoteague Ponies located on the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Dr. Carreiro returned to what he considers to be his home state of Massachusetts and worked in a multi-doctor small animal practice before joining the Becker College School of Animal Studies. He enjoys both his teaching role in the classroom and clinical role as staff veterinarian at the Lenfest Animal Health Center on the Becker College Campus.eiro
