Dr. Mauricio Vargas is a native of Bogotá, Colombia who spent much of his childhood on a cattle farm, which is where his love of animals originated. His passion for helping his fellow pet lovers led to the creation of All Pets Clinic, where he serves as both the owner and chief veterinarian. Dr. Vargas began studying veterinary medicine at Colombia’s Universidad de La Salle in 1994. After earning his degree, he came to the United States and became a licensed veterinarian here.
In 2005, Dr. Vargas started his own mobile veterinary practice before founding All Pets Clinic in 2011. Nearly all of Dr. Vargas’ free time is spent with animals. When he’s not hard at work, you may find him swimming with dolphins, whales, or sharks, fishing, working with large rescue cats such as lions, cougars, and tigers, or traveling in order to add to his knowledge of exotic animal species. When not working, Dr. Vargas enjoys studying to learn even more about the creatures that are his life’s passion.
