The Anzer Team

Meet Our Team

Dr. Juan Manuel L. Zertuche


Juan M. Lopez Zertuche and Cristina Anzures Gurria

When children name the things they may want to be when they grow up, veterinarian is a common occupation to make the list. Dr. Juan M. Lopez Zertuche and his wife, Cristina Anzures Gurria, owners of Anzer Animal Hospital, followed through on their childhood ambitions. 

“I have always had a love for animals and an interest in medical and surgical science, shared Dr. Zertuche. “As a young teenager, I volunteered at the Zoo, at Veterinary Hospitals, and Horse Shows. I became a Veterinarian and immediately after graduation I pursued specialty training in Internal Medicine and then in Surgery.” 

Dr. Zertuche and Dr. Anzures, moved to Wellington 10 years ago. Since moving to town, Dr. Zertuche and Dr. Anzures have continued to build their careers, and their family. Dr. Zertuche has successfully grown his veterinary practice and Dr. Anzures has been working in regulatory medicine for the Florida Department Of Agriculture for nine years. 

“Dr. Zertuche and Dr. Anzures have two children, and two Jack Rusell Terriers and are an extraordinary team in life, and as business partners. 

“The opportunity and growth of our work as veterinarians came together to allow us to acquire Anzer Animal Hospital. It is the product of sharing the same dreams, team effort and hard work.” 

How did your career take off? 

“My love for horses took me to Belmont Park in New York where I worked for the renowned surgeon William O Reed. Later I started my own equine practice, and had the opportunity to work with top class competition horses, and attend to them at world class events like the Equestrian World Cup, The World Equestrian Games, The Pan American Games, and the Olympic Games. All the while I continued to practice Small Animal Medicine and Surgery,” explained Dr. Zertuche. 

How and why did you open Anzer Animal Hospital? 

“Since our practice has continuously grown, we saw the need to have a stone and mortar facility to better provide the needed care for our patients and clients,” said Dr. Zertuche. 

“We always wanted to do more for our clients’ pets, and with our hospital we are now able to offer more services and products in a comfortable and convenient location, renovating the concept of veterinary visits,” added Dr. Anzures. 

Why the name Anzer? 

“My husband and I both wanted to contribute to the name of Anzer, so we came up with the combination of both of our last names,” said Dr. Anzures. 

What are your feelings and thoughts on your way to work each day? 

“Every day I feel energetic, I mentally review the day’s appointments and make a rough draft of what the best treatment plan for each one will be,” Dr. Zertuche shared. “My favorite part of my work is arriving to a diagnosis so I can provide answers and develop a solution for my clients and their pets.” 

What do you enjoy most about the business? 

“Seeing people committed to their pets’ well-being, and long-term relationships with owners that with time become friends,” said Dr. Anzures. 

Margaret Warsaw

Practice Manager


Hi, I’m Margaret, I’ve been in the veterinary field since 2004 when I started working as a veterinary assistant in a corporate clinic setting. I have also worked with Florida Department of Agriculture as the Palm Beach County Foreign Animal Disease Specialist prior to this opportunity to work full-time with Dr. Z and Dr. Anzures at Anzer.
I have worked my way up through all the positions in a veterinary hospital and have found new challenges as a Practice Manager.
I graduated from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) in 2008 with a B.S. in Animal Sciences and a minor in Equine Industry. My pets at home include 3 pitbull mixes, “Penelope” , “Starvin’ Marvin”, and "Sei"  who are all rescues and a cat named “Corrigan”.
I grew up riding horses and competing locally. I still have my childhood horse, “Lily”, who is 30 years old and spoiled rotten. I couldn’t imagine my life without animals involved and have a special place in my heart for all “senior” animals.

Brittany Carames

Veterinary Technician


My name is Brittany and I am a Sunshine State native; born and raised right here in South Florida!! I have been in the veterinary industry since 2001 when I started as a groomers assistant. In 2002, I started at a veterinary hospital as a kennel assistant and worked extremely hard over many years to eventually become a veterinary practice manager. I recently stepped down from management due to my true passion: NURSING!!!! I love the feeling of coming home after my work day knowing that I assisted in helping an animal in need whether it is preventative care like vaccines or an emergency situation that could result in saving a life and everything medical in between. Educating clients about veterinary medicine and the proper care of their animals is a very satisfying feeling as well!! I have worked in different aspects of the veterinary medical profession like general practice, emergency medicine, exotic pets, shelter/rescue and specialty medicine. I graduated from Palm Beach Community College in 2003 and transferred to the University of Florida. Throughout the course of my veterinary career, I have attained various certificates relating to animal health and medicine. 

I have been happily married to my husband Shawn since 2007. We have 2 boys named Kyle & Ryan, 4 dogs named Oakley, Gizmo, Odie & Cheyenne and numerous fish!! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors and watching my kids play travel baseball!! ❤️🐾⚾️

Brianna Bailey

Veterinary Technician/Grooming

The world of animals took a hold of me back in 2014. I started off as a dog bather in a small grooming shop where I learned just the basics of small care grooming. I wanted to do more, so I looked more into working with animals as came across of how to become a kennel tech. Working my way up the ladder through the years I had accomplished my goal of becoming a Vet Tech working in a great hospital. Having also kept up with my grooming skills, I was able to take on the role of becoming the hospital's groomer as well. It is the best feeling knowing I can make every animal I work with, leave feeling comfortable, happy, and looking great.
