Dr. Mike Bailey has been practicing large and small animal veterinary medicine for over 20 years. He graduated from the University of Illinois in 2001. Since then, he worked in several clinics across the United States. He is licensed in five states, including Alaska, where he once darted a wild yak! He has been with Robinson Hospital for Animals since 2015.

Dr. Bailey is married and has three children. Due to allergies in the home, they confine their animal family to pet fish. Besides spending time with his family, Dr. Bailey loves to travel and enjoys hunting and fishing, not in his own aquarium of course!

Fun Fact: Dr. Bailey has an identical twin that is 18 minutes younger. During their grade school years, they had fun shooting off bottle rockets while watching their dog chase after them, sometimes catching them before they exploded – ouch!
