Our staff is very proud of their accomplishment in meeting the stringent requirements of becoming an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) Accredited Practice. Only 12 percent of all small animal veterinary practices in the U.S. have achieved AAHA accreditation.
Continuing education is one of the standards we set for all of our employees. We hold twice monthly in house education sessions, send staffers to education seminars several times a year and have them share their education experience with the other staff members.
Graduating from NCSU, I’ve lived and practiced small animal veterinary in Palm Beach County since 1987. I’ve owned my award-winning Fondren Pet Care Center since 1997. I strive to stay abreast of the newest medical information by going well beyond the required continuing education hours and enjoy the challenge of new technologies.
I have a special interest in dermatology (skin), Ophthalmology (eyes), and dentistry. I am a member in good standing of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Florida Veterinary Medical Association (FVMA), Palm Beach County Veterinary Society (PBCVS), American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP), Veterinary Surgical Laser Society (VSLS), American Heartworm Society (AHS), American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS).
My hobbies include spending pool time with my dog and husband, playing with my wild, destructive cats, reading, wildlife photography, and going out to dinner.
A 4th generation Floridian, I was born and raised here in Palm Beach Gardens and joined the Fondren Pet Care family in July 2013. I have my bachelor's degree in healthcare management. My fiancee and I have an Australian Shepherd named Koda. We rescued her in 2011 and she totally runs our lives and household (and we wouldn't have it any other way!) My spare time is spent living the South Florida lifestyle in the pool or on the boat applying numerous layers of sunscreen.
I’m Hilary Walker. Originally from New Jersey, I moved to Florida in 2012 and started here at Fondren Pet Care in November 2013. I live with my husband and three rescued cats: Zeus, Sonny, and Conor. I also rescued my dog Chip who, if you're lucky, you'll get to see here at Fondren Pet Care! Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had a passion for helping animals. I started volunteering at a very young age and once I graduated high school, I was presented with a job as a veterinary technician at my pet's veterinary office. I have been practicing as a technician ever since. I love all aspects of being a technician, but my favorite is veterinary dentistry. I look forward to furthering my knowledge in the veterinary field.
I am Emmanuel Hernandez, a veterinary technician here at Fondren Pet Care. I have been a part of the Fondren Pet Care family since January 2014 and have over 10 years of experience in the veterinary field. My wife and I have three daughters, 1 dog, and 1 cat. On my time off, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My hobbies include playing basketball and Xbox, and cooking
My name is Kori and I was born and raised in Palm Beach Gardens. I joined the Fondren Pet Care team in 2014 and I love working with animals. I have two rescued dogs: Bambi is a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix and Forrest is a Brussels Griffon mix. I enjoy playing sports, fishing, and spending time with my family./p>
I'm a Florida native, originally from Boynton Beach. I've worked in the veterinary field for over five years now, and am excited to further my career in this highly rewarding field. I have two cats, both rescued; an orange tabby named Weasley who enjoys stealing Indian food from the kitchen counter, and a Sphynx named Benny who spends most of his time literally on top of me. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, traveling and photography in my spare time.
