Dr. Jordan Weinger, DVM
Dr. Weinger grew up in South Florida. He earned his BS in zoology at the University of Wisconsin. He grew up surrounded by dogs, cats and birds and knew from an early age that he wanted to become a veterinarian. Naturally, after college, he headed to St. George’s University in the West Indies to attend veterinary school. There he met his future husband and honed his craft in veterinary medicine. After spending his clinical year at Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Weinger graduated and began to sharpen his skills in companion animal medicine.
Veterinary Medicine has changed drastically in recent years to include stress reducing, fear free, species specific handling techniques. Dr. Weinger’s dream is to teach and show his community how we can truly help our furry friends and ensure they are well taken care of. His goal is to see each of his patients happy and comfortable when coming to see him. As such, he has designed an entire hospital to accommodate for such an aspiration.
Dr. Weinger has a special interest in small animal medicine and surgery. He is also an active member of the AVMA and the FVMA. During his time away from the clinic, he enjoys cooking and exploring Miami. But most of all he enjoys spending time with his husband Ori and cat Mitzi.
