Javier Avendano, DVM,

Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Surgery

Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon


Dr. Javier Avendano brings a remarkable expertise and a passion for orthopedic surgery to H-Town Veterinary Specialists. Born in Santiago, Chile, and raised in Plymouth, Minnesota, Dr. Avendano's  blend of surgical expertise, compassion, and love for animals makes him a valuable addition to the Houston veterinary community.

After earning his bachelor's degree in Biology, Society, and Environment from the University of Minnesota, Dr. Avendano pursued his veterinary education at St. George's University School of Veterinary Medicine in Grenada, West Indies. His dedication to surgical excellence led him to complete a rotating internship at Mississippi State University followed by a surgical internship at VCA Hollywood in Florida. Dr. Avendano then undertook his surgical residency at Veterinary Surgical Centers in northern Virginia, culminating in his board certification in 2024.

While Dr. Avendano enjoys all aspects of surgery, his professional expertise lies in orthopedic procedures. His commitment to advancing veterinary care is matched only by his love for the outdoors. Outside of the operating room, you'll often find him hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, or simply enjoying quiet moments at home with his beloved dog, Jinx, and cat, Choo.

Dr. Avendano's arrival at H-Town Veterinary Specialists brings a valuable addition to our mission in providing exceptional surgical care to the pets of the greater Houston area.
