Map & Details>>

Ever since she was a little girl in the Dominican Republic, Maria Oliveira only wanted to heal animals and be a mother. So when she was diagnosed with Stage 3B breast cancer in 2007 and doctors explained her chances of survival were slim, she accepted that her life was complete. But that didn't mean she gave up. Instead, she went to work every day to treat the animals she'd come to care so desperately about. "In a weird way I think it healed me," Oliveira says. Although she wouldn't advise anyone — man or his four-legged best friend — to abandon chemotherapy for a petting zoo, Oliveira thinks there is something inherently therapeutic in caring for animals. She's been in remission since 2008 and is, as always, working full time in the clinic she opened back in 2001. Oliveira vaccinates, microchips, conducts surgeries, and advises owners on preventive care for their pets in her South Miami clinic. When she's not working, you can find her at home caring for her two daughters, two dogs, and four cats.

Thank you so much for the contact information for this vet. I really appreciate it. My dog has been acting really weird lately. I am afraid that my dog is going to die. When is this vet open? I want to call them right now.

My sister is a vet and she really loves her job.  Just like you Maria she really enjoys getting to meet the animals that people bring to her.  She gets really excited when the animal leaves better then when they came.  She really enjoys bringing smiles back to the animals owner.  http://www.gypsumah.com

@travissimons17 Animals can bring great joy into our lives. I am so grateful for the individuals who invest so much effort in providing quality care for these beautiful creatures. Maria Oliviera is an incredible woman who is battling a vicious disease. I hope that she is able to continue extending her love and care to animals.
