Dr. Alvaro Larin

Dr. Larin is the founder and President of Miami Veterinary Specialists. Growing up, Dr.Larin had varied interests but a passion for veterinary medicine. For this reason, Dr. Larin decided to pursue his education at the University of Florida where he earned his doctorate in veterinary medicine. Afterward, Dr. Larin completed his surgical internship with Affiliated Veterinary Specialists in Orlando and then his residency training at the Animal Medical Center in New York City. During his residency, Dr.Larin worked alongside what many considered the top veterinary surgeons in the country. Seeing the need to provide the same veterinary care in his hometown of Miami, Fl. Dr.Larin then moved back down and established Miami Veterinary Specialists. Over the years, Dr.Larin gained extensive experience taking on the most challenging cases. However, he’s most known for his expertise in performing soft tissue, orthopedic and neurological surgeries. His commitment to excellence and continual improvement over the past twenty years has made MVS one of the best veterinary hospitals in South Florida.
