    Robin Stelljes, D.V.M.

    Kimberly Katz D.V.M.

    Dr. Katz is a native South Floridian. She attended the University of Florida for her undergraduate degree and attended the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine for her doctorate. After graduating, she decided Minnesota was too cold to live in full time and moved back to South Florida so that she could enjoy the warm weather and the beach!

    Janielle Vergne D.V.M.

    I felt a need to help animals ever since I would see them roaming the streets of Puerto Rico where I grew up. I wanted to pick up every one of them up, get them healthy, and find them homes. Being a veterinarian is and has always been my passion. I could not imagine myself doing anything else. I fulfilled my dream at Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2002.

AAHA

Our hospital is very proud of our status as an accredited member hospital of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This prestigious accomplishment is achieved by submitting to thorough periodic inspections of all the different aspects of a veterinary office, including medical records, surgery, anesthesia, radiology, and hospital husbandry. Less than 15% of all animal hospitals in the United States can claim this honor, and it is a clear indication of quality and high standards in our profession.
