Dr. Bobby Ortiz, B.A., B.Sc., M.R.C.V.S., M.V.B.

Dr Bobby Ortiz, aka ‘Dogtor Bob’, is a small exotic veterinarian based in Dublin. He has a strong interest in in Small Mammal (rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets) and Reptile medicine and surgery.

He grew up in a family of avid animal lovers, which led him to work as an aquarist at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific in California. It was there he decided he wanted to become a vet, and specialise in exotic animals that needed the same care and medical attention that dogs and cats are given.

He lives with his Brittany Spaniel Bodhi, and has dreams to build a new tropical marine fish tank in the near future!

As well as a degree in Veterinary Medicine from University College Dublin and a degree in Marine Biology and Biochemistry from Hawaii Pacific University, he is also qualified in Classical Music Performance from California State University!
