Dr. Jacqueline Ouriques earned her veterinarian degree from the Lutheran University of Brazil and obtained her Master's Degree in Antimicrobial Resistance at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. In Brazil, she was a practicing veterinarian for 10 years and when her husband was offered a great job opportunity in America, she knew she had to continue her passion for caring for animals. While completing her American veterinary Board certifications, she volunteered at local shelters and worked as a veterinarian tech. In 2021, she was excited to become part of the Springbrook Animal Care Center family. She was even further impressed with this clinic because not only are they an excellent animal practice, but also truly show how much they care about animals by providing an animal rescue shelter! Dr. Ouriques is a fear-free certified professional and her special interests are internal medicine and surgery.
In her free time, Dr. Ouriques enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, her two children, and her dog Julie. Caring for animals is her lifelong passion and any one of her friends can tell you how much she enjoys talking about the health of animals. She's excited to meet you and your furry companions!
