Dr. Vilallonga continued his academic career by obtaining a Master of Science degree in veterinary research in 2005 and later a PhD in veterinary microbiology and infectious diseases in 2013—several of his scientific articles were also published in veterinary magazines.
As a lifelong learner, he has been involved in many aspects of the veterinary profession, including working as a specialist in public and animal health for the Department of Agriculture of the Government of Spain. He joined the Animal Hospital at Baldwin Park in July 2012 and has since been devoted to his furry patients in order to give them the best possible care. He has a special interest in alternative approaches such as traditional Chinese veterinary medicine and acupuncture, holistic treatments, and Western medical options. He is also well-versed in general and orthopedic surgery, specifically CCL repair, FHO and luxating patellas as well as ultrasound for abdomen and heart.
Dr. Vilallonga is married and has two children and a beloved Golden Retriever named Elsa Marie. She also doubles as his personal medical assistant who you will often see at the clinic honing her skills in getting treats from you!

Maria Carolina Grillo, DVM
Dr. Maria Carolina Grillo was born in Caracas, Venezuela and immigrated with her family at a young age to South Florida. She is a “double Gator” graduating from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. During that time, she dedicated herself to working on community outreach by mentoring future veterinary students and providing veterinary care to under-serviced communities in Florida and Ecuador. She also received additional training in exotic animal medicine and fear-free practices. She is passionate about empowering families and strengthening the human-animal bond through education.
Dr. Grillo considers herself a true generalist who enjoys most aspects of small animal and exotic animal medicine. She especially enjoys endocrinology, dermatology, behavior, and geriatric medicine.
She is happily married to a man who loves animals as much she does. They share their home with their rescue animals Gabi (a Labrador Retriever), Oliver (a Pug), Nori (a Cymric), and Malygos (a bearded dragon). In her free time, she enjoys spending time with loved ones, checking out new restaurants, and dancing to Latin music.
Mary Anne Bowen, DVM
Dr. Mary Anne Bowen’s love of animals has been life-long and she has been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to advocate for them in two careers, first in policy and law-making and now in the practice of medicine.
She graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelors in Philosophy and Ethics and after several years of involvement with animal welfare causes both in the US and abroad resolved that she wanted to devote her life to medicine. She attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed her clinical training at the University of Florida. Dr. Bowen has completed additional training in Pain Management and Palliative Care, as well as Fear Free Medicine and is currently enrolled in the Veterinary Medical Acupuncture Certification through Curacore.
Dr. Bowen cherishes her role in the relationships she cultivates with her patients and their families and it’s been a privilege to negotiate complicated and sensitive medical and emotional needs. She loves pain and chronic disease management, especially in service to our sweet patients living with arthritis and cancer. Dr. Bowen’s greatest love, however, is her geriatric patients and she relishes the gains she can make with even conservative interventions to bring comfort and quality of life.
She lives in Winter Park with her saint of a husband and family of young (at heart) rescue dogs.

After a severe leg injury, Dr. Carson discovered the immense value of physical therapy in recovery and mobility. This sparked an interest in bringing these techniques to our animal patients. Dr. Carson completed postgraduate training at the University of Tennessee in Canine Rehabilitation. She is thrilled to have the ability to help our patients recover from injury or surgery. Her goal is to help all patients maintain mobility for as long as possible with a high quality of life and minimal discomfort.
Dr. Carson truly enjoys practicing integrative medicine, combining the best of both Western and Eastern medical modalities to benefit the patient. Her areas of interest include arthritis and chronic pain management in geriatric patients, post- surgical rehabilitation, as well as cancer therapy.
