From cats and dogs to guinea pigs, bunnies, tropical fish and more exotic species, geckos, lizards, bearded dragons and more, Petmania has an extensive library of advice for pet owners.

Emily Miller, Marketing Manager of Petmania said,

We share our customers’ passion for pets and are here to help all pet-parents keep their animals safe and well with excellent advice, the best of nutritional supplies and pet-care accessories. Our new Pet Care Advice Centre is an extension of our in-house expertise to help pet owners answer commonly asked questions about pet health, nutrition and behaviour. We are delighted to announce that our new Ambassador, Dr Bobby Ortiz is joining the Petmania family and will share his knowledge and experience with our community.”

Petmania has assembled a team of some of Ireland’s top pet experts including Dawn Greer, a Championship level Agility Trainer who has represented Ireland at Crufts and small animal vet Carol Doyle. Now joining the panel of contributors who lend their knowledge to Petmania’s Pet Care Advice Centre is the newly appointed ambassador, Dr Bobby Ortiz, aka ‘Dogtor Bob’.

‘Dogtor Bob’ is a small and exotic animal veterinarian surgeon based in Dublin. His area of speciality is exotic animals including birds, fish, reptiles and small mammals. Dr Bobby has a particular grá for small mammals like rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and ferrets.

He grew up in California in a family of avid animal lovers, which led him to work in Long Beach Aquarium. Having earned his degree in Marine Biology and Biochemistry from Hawaii Pacific University, Bobby came to Ireland to study Veterinary Medicine at University College Dublin. Bobby is also a qualified classical musician. He married his Irish love, Emma, in September 2021. The newlyweds live in Dublin with their three year-old Brittany Spaniel named Bodhi.

Dr Bobby said,

“I’m really excited to align with a brand that shares my values and love of animals big and small, furry, feathered and scaly! I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences and working alongside Petmania’s team of pet care specialists.”
