history

The Ladron de Guevara Family has been in   Veterinary Medicine since 1933 and is currently starting its 4th generation of Veterinary Doctors. 


In 1964 Visionary Dr Antonio Ladron de Guevara, his son Arturo and 3 other fellow Vets under the Universidad de Guadalajara open the first Veterinary School in Guadalajara.
In 1965 Dr Arturo Ladron de Guevara opens the first animal hospital in Western Mexico and the first American Animal Hospital Association certified hospital in Mexico, based in Guadalajara and taking care of the expat community. 


In 1990 Dr Hector joins his father Dr. Arturo at the hospital in Guadalajara and in 1992 opens with the humane society a 5 day practice in Riberas del Pilar, Chapala, bringing the first x-ray and bloodwork equipment in the area. In 2002 under the design of world renowned architect John King the new hospital in riberas opens its doors, becoming the 2nd specifically designed animal hospital in the state, just after his fathers hospital in Guadalajara.


In 2016 with an investment of 90,000 usd all the equipment is renewed.

On 2017, we became the first hospital in Latin America to incorporate PETPACE (TM) to be able to monitor pain, fever, heart rate and 9 other values remotely for our patients, enabling us to only prescribe the minimum medication needed.


On 2018 we are expanding our surgical wing, and creating a state of the art ICU.
