Janet Bailey, DVM, DACVIM

     Dr. Janet Bailey is the daughter of a mixed practice veterinarian and came to veterinary medicine after raising her two daughters. She received her veterinary medical degree from Kansas State University in 2002. Following a one year internship program at VCA South Shore Animal Hospital in Massachusetts, Dr. Bailey continued her training with a residency in small animal internal medicine at Louisiana State University. After the completion of her residency in 2005, Dr. Bailey relocated to the Phoenix area, where she has practiced for 11 years. Valley Fever, respiratory disease, gastroenterology, and endocrinology are some of her special interests. She enjoys internal medicine because of the variety of challenging cases that often include multiple body systems.

     Dr. Bailey’s commitment to advance veterinary medicine is evidenced by the charities and associations she serves. She holds a seat on the board of the Veterinary Internal Medicine Foundation and is currently president-elect of the board. She has been a member of the Phoenix Zoo Animal Health Advisory Committee and has been providing advanced medicine diagnostics and medical management to the animals at the Phoenix Zoo. She donates her time to lecture at local and regional veterinary meetings, and helps to train 4th year veterinary students and interns.

     She lives with a pack of dogs and cats with special needs, and they are spoiled rotten. She enjoys time spent outdoors, with her daughters and their dogs, and loves the challenge of bird photography. She is excited to live in Tucson and looks forward to becoming an active member of the Tucson veterinary community.


Peter Bondy, DVM, DACVIM

Dr. Bondy is originally from New Orleans, LA.  He graduated from the University Of Missouri College Of Veterinary Medicine in 2000.  After completing an internship at a private practice in south Florida, he returned to Missouri to complete a residency in small animal internal medicine and a Masters in Biomedical Sciences, and he received his board certification in 2004.  His interests are wide covering a variety of medicine fields with particular interest in GI/hepatic issues, cases of hematologic abnormalities, and endocrinopathies, but ALL internal medicine issues are fair game and welcome by him.  In his free time, he enjoys caring for his many dogs, cooking, and photography (especially “stalking birds”).


Bradford C. Dixon, DVM, MS, DACVS

Dr. Bradford Dixon graduated in 1990 from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed an internship at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston.
