Eric O. Colón-Berrios, DVM
Dr. Eric O. Colón was born and raised in Puerto Rico. He attended The University of Puerto Rico where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Animal Science. He continued to follow his childhood dream of becoming a Doctor in Veterinary Medicine by attending The Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in Alabama. He graduated in 2010 and has worked ever since as a small animal veterinarian. His special interests within the field are in small animal internal medicine, emergency medicine, radiology and soft tissue surgery.
Apart from work Dr. Colón enjoys his time off by spending time with his loved ones, going to the beach, fishing and riding his motorcycle. He shares his home with all of his fur babies, his Shih Tzu's named Jojo & Annie, Staffordshire Bull Terrier named BamBam and his 2 adorable kittens Smokey and Pheobe.
My fascination with animals started at a young age on my grandfather's horse ranch. In college I worked with snakes at a venom lab. After college I worked with big cats and bears at a refuge, before working at 3 different zoos with a wide array of animals including Komodo dragon, hippo, and penguins. Eventually I became specialized in training large African hoofstock (Rhino, Giraffe, antelope). Finally I got to work with and train Asian Elephants. After that I retired from zookeeping and became a vet tech. In my free time I have been lucky enough to swim with some amazing wild animals including: sea turtles (3 species), sea lions, marine iguanas, Galapagos penguins and Whale Sharks!
