Dr. Jeff Dizik received his degree in Veterinary Medicine from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University in 1975. He did an internship at the Henry Berg Memorial Hospital in New York City before going into private practice. After leaving his internship, he practiced in a number of different hospitals in Connecticut and Michigan, learning from many excellent veterinarians.
