Dr. Congdon received his veterinary training and degree at Colorado State University in 2006. In preparation for veterinary school, he completed a one-year Masters degree at CSU in 2001, focusing on mammalian anatomy and physiology. After a year of graduate school, he continued his education at Colorado State's James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital's anesthesia department as an emergency anesthesia technician. He continued in this role for five years as he started he started veterinary school in 2002.

After completing veterinary school, he worked for two years as an emergency veterinarian, but the call for specialization was strong, and he returned to Colorado State University for residency training in anesthesia and analgesia. He completed board-certification and became a Diplomate of the College of Veterinary Anesthesia & Analgesia in September 2011.

Dr. Congdon worked in a private referral practice outside Milwaukee, Wisconsin from 2011 - 2018, training veterinary technicians, emergency interns, staff emergency doctors, as well as overseeing the anesthesia caseload. He also worked continuously to provide CE and outreach in the community, speaking at many hospitals, providing evening CE events, as well as lectures and talks for the public. He has been fortunate to asked to participate and provide CE lectures at IVECCS, AVMA and state VMA conferences.

In April 2018, Dr. Congdon joined NC State to help create and oversee the NC State Veterinary MRI service. He is very enthusiastic about bringing his private practice experience and anesthesia expertise to build a robust, dynamic and lively new service to the NC State Veterinary Hospital as well as to our referral community.
