Dr. 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, where he gained a solid foundation in general horsemanship. He attended the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, where he completed the pre-veterinary curriculum through the Animal Science department and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 2001. During his undergraduate studies, Dr. Carreiro became involved in various research projects; he later completed an M.S. degree in 2002. Dr. Carreiro went on to earn his DVM from Colorado State University. Because of his interest in research, Dr. Carreiro was chosen to participate in the Merial Veterinary Scholars Program.
Prior to coming to Becker College, Dr. Carreiro worked in a multi-doctor small animal practice in Massachusetts. Before returning to Massachusetts, he spent nearly seven years practicing in a busy mixed-animal practice in Virginia, where he was a member of the team that provided veterinary care to the world-famous Chincoteague Ponies located on the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge.
