Growing up in Oklahoma City, Dr. Robertson enrolled at Oklahoma State University as a Physiology major and Chemistry minor. After earning his undergraduate degree in 1982, he spent the next four years working toward his doctorate in veterinary medicine. He was a member of Phi Zeta and Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and he received a scholarship for his leadership, scholarship, and clinical proficiency.

Before becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Robertson volunteered on a dairy farm and with his veterinarian uncle.

Dr. Robertson is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and Missouri Veterinary Medical Association.

The most satisfying part of being a veterinarian, he says, is watching sick or injured animals recover and being a part of their lives.
