Dr Torres at ABQ Petcare Hospital in Albuquerque, NM

Dr. Torres

I was born and raised here in the Land of Enchantment. I attended undergrad at the University of Dallas as well as New Mexico State University, where I received a double major in Spanish and Animal Science and a minor in Biochemistry. I then attended Colorado State University where I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. After earning my degree, I choose to advance my skill-set by completing a competitive rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at VCA Veterinary Care Animal Hospital and Referral Center here in NM. I became a vet because I love animals and practicing veterinary medicine enables me to serve both the animal and you the owner; it's a great feeling. I enjoy spending time with my family including my nephews and nieces, and of course my dog Cielo. In my free time l like going on hikes, runs, and bike rides. I very much look forward to meeting you and your pets and enhancing the special bond we humans share with our animals.
