Veterinarians Bob & Kay Bruno

Our Staff

Dr. Kay Bruno, DVM

Dr. Kay Bruno has been surrounded by animals all of her life. Her parents maintained acreage complete with goats, horses, rabbits and chickens. At a very early age, Dr. Kay Bruno's passion for animals (and a knack for math and science) drove her to pursue a career in veterinary services.

Dr. Bruno graduated from Oklahoma State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1988 where she met her husband and future family business partner. She initially practiced at a mixed animal vet ranging from small animals to horses in South Florida. Her background in large vet facilities with multiple doctors provided exposure to a variety of both feral and domesticated animals.

The Dr. and her husband moved to Portland in 1996 to start a family and search for the perfect location for their practice. She found the small town neighborhood feel of the Sellwood/Westmoreland area to be a perfect fit. They opened the doors in 1998. Today, the Bruno family consists of two beautiful children, two dogs, four cats, a bird, a tortoise, a turtle, an iguana, three tanks of fish and of course, Moreland Veterinary Hospital.

Dr. Bob Bruno, DVM

Dr. Bob Bruno shares the same passion for animals. He worked for a zoo for three years before deciding to join a circus to continue working with exotic animals. His stint with the circus solidified his interest in working with animals and he decided to enter veterinarian school. He graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1988. Part of his senior year was spent at Oklahoma State where he met his future wife, Dr. Kay. Upon graduation, he worked for a small Ft. Lauderdale animal hospital for eight years.

Prior to their move to Portland, Dr. Bob and his wife had never had the opportunity to work together. Opening Moreland Veterinary Hospital fulfilled his dream of having a family oriented practice in a charming Portland neighborhood.

Veterinarian Scott Davis

Dr. Scott Davis, DVM

Dr. Scott Davis graduated in 1999 from Oregon State University's and Washington State University's joint School of Veterinary Medicine. He practiced in Portland for a year before moving to Chicago where he spent two years working and living down the street from Wrigley Field (Go Cubs!). While there, he rescued a boxer/border collie mix, Elsie, who has rarely left his side since.

After some brief relief work in Los Angeles, Dr. Scott moved back to Portland to stay and has continued to practice veterinarian medicine. He is thrilled to now live and work in the Sellwood/Westmoreland neighborhood, having purchased his home here in 2003 and joined the Moreland Veterinary Hospital family in October of 2005. His veterinary interests include surgery and dermatology. He sincerely enjoys the daily interactions with his clients and patients and works fervently with them to make the best decisions about their pets’ care and well-being.

Dr. Scott's recent marriage to Delaney brought the 12 year-old Australian Shepherd, Jedi, and the 10 year-old tuxedo cat, Sita, into his life. In 2011, the happy couple adopted a Pacific Pug Rescue girl named Sooki and made her part of the Davis-Payne pack! He spends his free time traveling and camping (especially around Oregon), playing soccer and of course, playing with the dogs.
