Meet Our Veterinarian

Dr. Luis D. Cruz

Dr. Cruz Simi Valley VeterinarianFor as long as he can remember, Dr. Luis Cruz has been interested in biological science and animal husbandry. He’s also had a life-long desire to help other people. As a veterinarian and the owner of American Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Cruz gets to combine all of his passions in one fulfilling career!

Dr. Cruz grew up in Brooklyn, New York, with his parents and brother. He attended the University of California at Davis, where he worked full-time as a veterinary assistant while tackling a full course load. In 1995, he was accepted into veterinary school and hasn’t looked back since.

In August of 2006, Dr. Cruz took over the ownership and management of American Veterinary Hospital from the clinic’s previous owner. He has special interests in exotic pet medicine, soft tissue surgery, and internal medicine. Most of all, he enjoys the immense satisfaction he gets from helping a pet—and thereby their human family—get better.
