Calusa Veterinary Center Staff Profiles

Javier Fuentes, DVM

Associate, General Practice
Dr. Javier M. Fuentes is originally from Colombia. He attended La Salle University in Bogota, where he received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1992. After graduation, he completed a one year internship in different veterinary specialties in the Colombian Amazon. There he worked mainly with the local community with their small animals and exotic pets. He also worked with large and wild animals and pursued his interest in animal reproduction and surgery. Upon completion of his internship, Dr. Fuentes spent the next two years earning his MBA. These stepping stones of experience and education helped pave the way in establishing his own veterinary hospital in Bogota with his wife Ana, also a veterinarian. Both of them began diving in, eager to work hand in hand in the fascinating world of small animal medicine.Concurrently, over the next few years, Dr. Fuentes embarked on another special interest which entailed pursuing his dream of reentering academia pursuing a Master of Science in Parasitology and then earned his PhD in the same area. He then went on to become an associate professor in La Salle University, teaching the up and coming classes of veterinarians.

Dr. Fuentes and Ana later decided to move to south Florida searching for a more peaceful, tranquil environment to raise a family. They have two beautiful children, Nicholas and Emily, who share their parents’ love of animals. There are early signs they may be following in their parents’ footsteps. The Fuentes family shares their lives with feline Jeanne Marie, three dogs, Miley, Morgan and Charlie and tropical fish.

Dr. Fuentes has dedicated the last 10 years obtaining special training and a professional interest in small animal dentistry, surgery and exotic animal medicine. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Veterinary Dental Society and the American Heartworm Association.

In his spare time, he spends a great deal of time with family activities and enjoys volunteering at the Sawgrass Nature Center repairing the shells of injured turtles and tortoises, practicing exotic avian and all other wildlife creatures medicine.
