Barr received a BS in Animal Science from California Polytechnic State University and a DVM from Colorado State University in 2014. Barr spent the next four years gaining practical experience working in small animal clinics and a large animal mobile practice, as well as operating his own small animal mobile service. During this time he explored and incorporated new technologies, including 3D printing, imaging systems, networking, CT utilization, practice management software, record keeping/data analysis, communication platforms, client satisfaction analysis, and medical monitoring devices. Barr is currently an epidemiology PhD student at the University of Guelph and continued his interest in the application of technology to veterinary practice by joining a unique research lab that focuses on health informatics, digital health, and emerging technology in veterinary medicine.
