Dr. Rodríguez Ruiz is the newest addition to our team of wonderful doctors! She was born and raised in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico. She received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Ross University in 2016 after completing her clinical year at the University of Florida. Dr. Rodríguez worked as a general practitioner in Puerto Rico for various months before deciding to further her education. She then completed a one-year rotating internship at VCA Animal Specialty Group in Los Angeles, California followed by a one-year surgical internship at Central Texas Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital in Austin, Texas. During these years, she developed a special interest for the fields of Surgery and Emergency and Critical Care. Dr. Rodríguez fell in love with the city of Austin and decided to move to downtown Austin in June 2018. In her spare time, she enjoys soaking up some sun at the pool, hiking, working out, and spending quality time with her French Bulldog, Lupita.
