Dr. Veronica Gonzalez-Vargas , DVM
I have always known I want
ed to practice Veterinary Medicine, ever since I took care of my pet hamster at the age of 7.
I obtained my degree from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, certified AVMA University in Mexico City. I moved to the US in 2014, approved certification for my Veterinary License, and DEA license in Massachusetts.
Before, and during my formal education, I worked in several animal hospitals to gain knowledge, experience, and clinical edge. During my last year of college education, I conducted a special surgery program at Willamate Valley Animal Hospital (Oregon), and at ASEC (California). This experience gave me a particular interest in orthopedic surgery, and I continue to practice and attend continued education to learn new techniques and technological aids.
I am passionate about my work, in providing families with options and informed decisions for their pets' care.
In my spare time, I like to explore the world! Whether it is on a bicycle, kayak, running, climbing or flying, I am always looking for adventure next to my husband and our Australian Shepherd, Kal-El.
