Dr. Bridget O’Connor
Dr. Bridget (Bridie) O’Connor is an internship-trained urgent care doctor who provides medical care for pets in Bend and the surrounding Central Oregon area.
Dr. O’Connor is originally from Southern California where she completed her bachelor’s in Biology and Chemistry at Whittier College. After her undergraduate work, Dr. O’Connor moved to Davis, California to pursue her doctorate in veterinary medicine at the University of California, Davis. She went on to complete a rigorous rotating small animal internship at the University of Pennsylvania where she acquired additional training in a variety of veterinary specialties including emergency medicine and urgent care. Dr. O’Connor has also spent time in Seattle where she practiced as a primary care veterinarian for 10 years, she is certified in veterinary acupuncture, and recently obtained her master’s degree in business administration. Dr. O’Connor is passionate about being a veterinarian and animal advocacy. She considers it a privilege to provide exceptional medical care to all the pet companions in this area.
While Dr. O’Connor loves being a veterinarian, she has many other interests when she is not practicing. She loves hiking, running, ballet, riding horses, travel, painting, photography, and her Irish heritage (hence the Irish nickname ‘Bridie’). Dr. O’Connor is married and has a wonderful family that includes her partner (who is also a veterinarian), their two children, as well as their dogs Maya and Poppy.
