Dr. Adriana Mendoza, DVM Medical Director
Dr. Adriana Mendoza grew up in the West Texas town of El Paso in an animal-loving family. Her passion for animals and interest in medicine led her to study biology at the University of Texas in Austin with the ultimate goal of going to veterinary school. After graduating from UT, she was accepted to the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M, where she completed her degree in 2006. While she is proud to be an Aggie Vet, she will always be a Longhorn at heart!.
After completing her veterinary degree, Dr. Mendoza completed a small animal rotating surgical and medicine internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in New Jersey. It was a wonderful experience, and while she was surrounded by brilliant mentors, she could not wait to get back to the Austin area. She has spent the last nine years in a small animal practice focusing on her interests of preventive medicine, soft tissue surgery and internal medicine.
Dr. Mendoza and her husband welcomed their first child in November of 2016. She loves being a mom and spending time with her family. Other activities she enjoys in her spare time include country dancing, live music and being outdoors. Dr. Mendoza is excited about providing high quality veterinary services to the Leander community at Firehouse. She is very passionate about her patients and looks forward to helping you with all of your pet care needs.
