Dr. Jose Falco was born in Cuba and grew up around dogs, cats, roosters and pigs. He believes growing up around animals may be the reason he is a veterinarian today. When he was 24 years old, he finished his studies working in large animal veterinary care. Dr. Falco came to the United States in November 1999 and worked as a Veterinary Technician at Knowles Animal Clinic until he earned his license in 2002. After receiving his license, he worked at Banfield Animal Hospital for a number of years, then opened his own practice. Dr. Falco then worked as a house call veterinarian for five years before joining the wonderful and caring staff at Derks Animal Hospital.
