Jennifer Avila, Veterinary Assistant
Ever since Jennifer was young, she dreamed about being a veterinarian. After a career as a general manager for ten years, she knew it was time to make her dream a reality. She is currently finishing her Bachelor of Science in biological sciences at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton and is planning to enroll in a DVM program within the next 2 years. Jennifer has always had a passion for wildlife, so she will potentially specialize in exotics. So far in her veterinary career, the most rewarding part has been seeing Dr. Levy save patients and learning from him as a teacher, doctor, and friend.
Jennifer has 5 fur children, all cats, named Jacob, Shiloh, Orianna, Jack, and Scrappy. When she is not at work or school, Jennifer volunteers at the South Florida Wildlife Center. She really enjoys learning about all the wild animal species that are native to Florida, and her favorite part is seeing them come through rehabilitation successfully to being released. Jennifer’s greatest guilty pleasures include Game of Thrones and French fries. She’d eat them every day if she could!

We drive over 30 minutes to see Dr. Andy because we wouldn't take our dog anywhere else! We've had our dog for 10 years and Dr. Andy has always been kind, friendly and thorough with each visit. He's happy to answer all of our questions and most of all our dog is getting the best care. Dr. Andy Levy is the best!

I have been going to Dr. Levy for 17 years. I trust him with all my precious felines and canines. He has been there twice for me when I had to say good-bye to members of my family - most recently yesterday. Both times, he assured me that I was making the right and kind decision. My grief is profound and painful right now, but Dr. Levy's kind words and loving hugs are helping me get through this.

I am very happy with Dr. Levy and all of his staff. The office is immaculate- clean and comfortable. Parking is easy! Dr. Levy is always very patient and happy to answer any questions I might have. Dr. Levy is quick to respond to emergency calls and he has helped me make important decisions regarding my animals.

I have been seeing Dr Levy with my doggies for more than 15 years. Both he and his staff have always been available in good times and bad. Although I have moved a little further away I will still continue to be loyal to his practice as the mommy of his patients
- Julie G.
The office was clean and the staff was friendly. Dr. Levy was very direct with what our dog needed and we were out within 20 minutes-- on a Saturday! Our previous vet visits would have been at least 2 hours, several estimates, and suggestions for tests, etc.-- way more than needed. Very happy with this visit!!!
