Background and Education:
Veterinary School: Michigan State University
Dr. Bob Lukas graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University (MSU) in 1982. Born and raised in Detroit, Dr. Lukas returned there after veterinary school to practice for six years, the first two in general practice. Then he discovered the complexity, and the intensity of emergency veterinary work.
Dr. Lukas’ last position in Michigan was as Chief of Staff for an emergency practice. He moved to California in 1988 where he worked as a co-manager of an emergency practice in San Leandro for sixteen years. Dr. Lukas then came to Concord to co-manage Contra Costa Veterinary Emergency Center (now part of SAGE Concord) from 2004 until the end of 2007, when he became a partner in SAGE Veterinary Centers and helped establish a veterinary emergency facility in Dublin.
Bob has been a Tri-Valley resident since the early 90s with his wife, two kids, an English bulldog named Mabel, a French bulldog named Stitch, and guinea pigs named after various Star Wars characters (no cats due to family allergies for now). He is a booster for the Danville Mustang Fury soccer team and can be seen at area youth track meets and football games.
