Meet the Doctor

    Dr. Eduardo Jimenez, DVM
    Veterinarian and General Manager

    I built the practice in January 2011 and opened for animal care/business on June 1, 2011.

    I became a veterinarian because of my love of animals. I realized early in my life that God gave me the ability and the skills to heal them and fix animals when they are sick or have a traumatic event. Even though it is not always possible to save every one of my lovely critters, every day I put all of my knowledge, acquired training, skills, and most importantly, all of my heart into making sure to do everything in my power to both keep my patients healthy and bring the hurt or sick ones back to good health.

    After I graduated from high school, one of my friends took me to his new veterinary college to show me around as he was so proud to be accepted in a very competitive and prestigious vet school. I had the opportunity to see firsthand how an animal hospital operates and how much animals need help to keep them healthy. Something changed in my life. Even though I really love and care for animals, I never thought of actually helping many of them and learning the details of their behavior, anatomy, medicine, etc., and becoming a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. That visit opened a big door for me to turn an idea into a dream come true, becoming an animal Doctor.

    I became a veterinarian by really making an idea into reality. Playing and basic caring for animals was just the beginning. I put my mind, energy, and skill to the test by applying to vet school in my own country, Colombia, South America. I graduated from a very hard vet school in 1990. Then I decided to come to the United States to validate my profession and become licensed in two states. I practiced in Alabama for 10 years, then moved to Texas where I have been practicing for 16 years.

    I really enjoy keeping pets healthy, fixing them when they are literally broken (fractures or deformities), and also helping my patients to have comfortable, pain-free senior years. Keeping my healthy patients even healthier by promoting a comprehensive preventive medicine program that guarantees all pets will be up to date on basic care and provided with all of the tools for the owner to maintain excellent health for their loved ones.

    Accidents happen and bad traumatic events occur when you least expect them, but I have dedicated my profession to enabling my medical and surgical skills to help my patients by putting them back together when they are really hurt. Orthopedic surgery has been my passion. I have great respect for it due to the challenge that every individual case brings to me.

    It really keeps me on my toes as there are not two cases the same and each individual surgery demands my full surgical performance. Also, I enjoy working with my senior pets by providing several ways to keep them moving, free of pain, and living a good quality of life.

    I am originally from Colombia, South America. I grew up in the capital, Bogota. I went to 'La Universidad de La Salle', a very prestigious vet school in Colombia.

    My family is very big; Two incomparable parents, 2 older brothers, 3 younger sisters, 18 uncles and aunts, about 60 cousins, and the children of my cousins, some of whom I have not even met yet. We love to spend time together, eat our awesome food, and celebrate all special occasions with music and dancing.

    I have been blessed by God with the most wonderful wife a man can have. She is my best friend and my support, and she has given me the joy and the reason to continue living a happy life. I am talking about my two awesome children, Alexa and Eduardo II. We all four spend very quality time together. I love to help them with school and support them with their Ninja Warrior activities. We learn from each other a lot, we enjoy dancing, listening to great music, cooking, and going to church together.

    Going out to eat good food as well as cooking, playing soccer, watching sports, working out at the gym, listening to good music, and dancing are my hobbies. I enjoy spending time with my family and eating in good restaurants. We get ideas from others to cook at home, which is a great way to spend quality time with my closest family. I have played soccer all my life. Before going to vet school, I trained with soccer clubs in my country. It was amazing, but the coach made me decide between soccer and my profession. I am very happy with my decision and now soccer is more like a hobby that I greatly enjoy.

    I follow every single game of my national team, and when time allows it, many national and international teams. My wife and I go to the gym 2–3 times a week right before going to work. It really helps us maintain high levels of energy as well as enabling us to spend time together. When we are at home, there is always great music playing in the background, all kinds. We cannot live without it. Two to three times a month, we go dancing at different clubs around town. It is probably the most relaxing time away from the daily routine.
