VCA Tampa Bay Animal Hospital

Nicolas Caceres, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of Colombia - Bogota


I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia and earned my veterinary degree from the National University of Colombia. After moving to the United States in 2004 to pursue an internship at the University of Florida, I decided Florida was the place for me! Prior to joining the VCA family as a veterinarian in January of 2013, I worked as a technician at VCA Lockwood Ridge in Sarasota. Growing up in the city of Bogota, I always treasured my family's weekend getaways to the countryside. It was there that I first experienced my passion for animal health and medicine. To this day, I love the critical thinking that goes into piecing together the puzzle and maintaining animal health and wellness.  


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you.
