Dr. Chad Cosgrove grew up on a cattle ranch in North Central Nebraska, near Bassett. Kangaroo was Dr. Cosgrove’s cat as a little boy and began his life-long love for animals. When he moved to Lincoln to attend the University of Nebraska, he began working as an assistant in a small animal veterinary practice. That experience helped him decide to become a veterinarian.
Dr. Cosgrove earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science from the University of Nebraska in 1995 and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University in 1999. Upon graduation, he returned to Lincoln to practice in a small animal hospital. He has been with Nebraska Animal Medical Center since 2013.
Dr. Cosgrove’s special areas of interest are canine and feline behavioral medicine. He attended the North American Institute of Veterinary Behavioral Medicine in 2007 and enjoys attending veterinary conferences and learning the latest information and treatments available.
Dr. Cosgrove married his next-door neighbor, Amy. They have one son, Thomas, as well as three furry family members: Sawyer Brown, Linus, and Schroeder. In his spare time, Dr. Cosgrove enjoys watching NASCAR racing, college football, and Kansas City Royals Baseball, building Lego creations with Thomas, and playing video games on his phone.
