Evan Klein, Associate Veterinarian
I love being a problem solver. Working as a veterinarian and having the honor of caring for a member of my clients’ family gives me a perspective on what is important in life. I work in the veterinary field because I want to provide care to the animals in my community at the same level that I would want to give my own furry family member.
I have learned from my own dog that sometimes your best friend does not need to talk, just be there to listen and support. Working at Wiles VCA I feel that we have some of the best staff in all of South Florida, dedicated to providing great care and striving to improve every day. That is why I choose to practice at VCA Wiles Road Animal Hospital.
California born and raised, I have always been interested in marine and land animals for as long as I can remember. My dream of becoming a small animal veterinarian became more serious after working for three years at the local animal shelter in Santa Cruz, CA. I completed my undergraduate work in Marine Biology at the U.C. Santa Cruz campus and then realized my dream by graduating from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.
Looking to expand my knowledge in the veterinary field, I completed a joint internship with the Ambulatory Department at the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine and the local Champaign County Small Animal Shelter. My work experience includes treating a wide variety of animal species such as cattle, pigs, deer, sheep, goats, bison, dogs and cats.
I currently reside in Ft. Lauderdale with my wife Kathleen. Outside of Veterinary Medicine, I have a major interest in photography of nature and landscapes. In my free time I love to participate in outdoor recreation, such as going to the beach, playing soccer and street hockey, and just taking in the wonderful south Florida weather.
