Dr Jairo Rivera Posada


Arguably one of the most academically qualified Veterinarians available in the Wollongong and wider Illawarra region today, Jairo has two (yes that is not a typo, he really has two) PhD’s. He even patented a synthetic bone graft during his first PhD in Animal Medicine & Surgery.

Jairo has had an interesting career that has taken him across the world from Columbia to Europe to the United States to our awesome Great Barrier Reef. On this journey, Jairo has acquired a deep and diverse set of medical & surgical experience that enables him to ensure the best health outcomes possible for your beloved pet.

With a wife, two kids, a Frenchie called Peanut, a recent family move away from Sydney City life to the Illawarra and a new job at Dapto Veterinary Clinic, Jairo is a busy man!
