Dr. Maricarmen Perez, DVM

Saint Petersburg Center

Dr. Maricarmen Perez is originally from Puerto Rico, a gorgeous island in the Caribbean, where she grew up exploring the mountains and the exquisite beaches. Her first language is Spanish, and she is fluent in English (with an occasional accent here and there). Going to the park with her dog, going to the beach, traveling, exploring new cultures, and arts and crafts are some of her favorite pass times. She has one rambunctious dog, “Anubis,” one sweet cat “Quake,” and 1 adorable guinea pig “Apophis” that enjoy their time together. Her family was a significant influence on her career choice. Dr. Perez and her family took in stray animals, took them to veterinary clinics, and adopted them out or kept them as their own. She decided that becoming a veterinarian was the best way she could help the animals in need. The University of Puerto Rico became her second home; she graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry in 2010. Her love for animals grew even further. She was accepted into Colorado State University and graduated with her DVM degree in 2014. Dr. Perez loved Colorado but missed the beach, seafood, sea level, and being closer to Puerto Rico; thus, she moved to Florida in August 2019. She is excited to get to know you and your fur babies!

Fun Fact from Dr. Perez: In a crowded room, you can find me by hearing my laugh!
