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 husband and I have a sassy senior Australian Shepherd named Koda that we rescued in 2011 and our lives basically revolve around her! My spare time is spent living the South Florida lifestyle in the pool or on the boat applying numerous layers of sunscreen.
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

Palm Beach County has been called home since I was born. I am lucky enough to have joined the Fondren Pet Care family in April of 2018. I have a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences. There’s never a dull moment when you have a very sassy Siberian husky, Raava, and a loyal Alaskan malamute, Loki-Bear. When I’m not wrangling the pups I’m looking for the next part of the world to visit.
