Dr. Cynthia Henriquez graduated with honors from University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine in May 2010. Prior to that, she spent her undergraduate career at the University of Miami where she graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2005. Upon graduating from veterinary college, she spent 7 months at Veterinary Specialists of South Florida rotating throughout the Emergency and Critical Care, Cardiology, Soft Tissue and Orthopedic Surgery, Neurology, and Oncology Services.
She has co-authored two papers in the Journal of the American Veterinary Association. The first is a case report that was published in 2010 entitled "Excision of a congenital laryngeal cyst in a five-month-old dog via lateral extraluminal approach." Her most recent publication, "Comparison of short-term complication rates between dogs and cats undergoing appositional single-layer or inverting double-layer cystotomy closure:144 cases (1993-2010)" was featured in the January 2012 issue.
In her free time, Dr. Henriquez enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, mission work, working out, and watching basketball games. She has participated in mission trips to Nepal, Mexico, India, Africa, and New York City. She and her husband currently enjoy spoiling their cat, "Matti" who was rescued from the shelter as a kitten and their Pomeranian named "Jasmine."
For as long as she could remember, it has always been Dr. Henriquez's dream to follow in her father's footsteps and become a veterinarian. She is thrilled to be living her dream and loves what she does! She would like to give all the glory and honor to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for making this all possible.
