Dr. Pace, "Andrea" grew up in Rome (Italy) where he always dreamed of large country spaces and taking care of animals. In 1997, he graduated from Veterinary School in Perugia (Italy), and soon after, moved to the USA where he started practicing at Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine. At that prestigious institution, he was involved in the ophthalmology research program, but also performed surgery on horses, dogs, cats and even otters and hawks!
In 1999 he moved to sunny Florida and completed a formal internship in medicine and surgery at Coral Springs Animal Hospital, working side by side with specialists. Following this, he was the practice owner of an AAHA accredited hospital in Stuart, FL until he sold it in 2017.
Dr. Pace’s main interests are general/orthopedic surgery (cruciate ligament surgery, patella luxation) and reproduction. He has performed hundreds of artificial inseminations and planned C-sections to help professional breeders improve the quality of their breed lines. Furthermore, he is proficient in ultrasound on dogs and cats and can diagnose heart disease and other internal medical conditions.
He and his beautiful wife have two children and three pets (two Russian blue cats and a German short hair pointer). In his spare time he loves to fish, travel and practices recreational swimming
In addition to English, Dr. Pace speaks French, Italian and Spanish.
