Gabriella Mendez, DVM
Dr. Mendez grew up in Miami, Florida and wanted to be a veterinarian since she was seven years old. Dr. Mendez attended the University of Florida where she received her undergraduate degree in wildlife and ecology conservation, as well as her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. A year ago, she moved across country with her dog to sunny San Diego for an internship at VCA Animal Hospital and Referral Center. During this internship, she found her love for veterinary emergency and wanted to continue her career down that path.
On her time off, Dr. Mendez loves to volunteer with wildlife and aquatic species, free diving, traveling and any outdoor activity, especially ocean related. She currently rescued a cat to add to her fur family and is learning how to surf and play the ukulele. Dr. Mendez will always remember her roots and be a hard core Florida Gator fan!
