Dr. R Itescu

R Itescu is originally from the Cincinnati area, having grown up in Norwood. In 2016 he graduated from Murdoch University in sunny Perth, Australia obtaining his degree in veterinary medicine and surgery. While in Australia he worked mainly in emergency practice, but in returning to Ohio he realized that he missed the everyday interaction with his patients and their owners. He has a special interest in diagnostic imaging as well as exotics and pocket pets. He is excited to see any and all feathered, scaled, or furry pets.

In his off time, Dr. R likes to work on remodeling his house as well as artistic endeavors including drawing and painting. He likes to think of himself as a bit of a musician and plays the banjo, but his dog, Yasi, knows otherwise. Yasi (not pictured) came to the US with Dr. R from Queensland, Australia, and has been enjoying getting to see all of the different wildlife. He especially loves to chase squirrels as he’s never seen them before.
