Dr. Martin Giangreco

Co-Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. Martin Giangreco grew up in Asunción, Paraguay, where he nursed many stray pets back to full health over the years. He’s had a passion for animal care ever since he was a young boy! By the time he got a bit older and started to develop an interest in the sciences, the choice was clear: veterinary medicine was the perfect career path for Dr. Giangreco.

Dr. Giangreco graduated from the Universidad National de Asunción in Paraguay in 1989, then came to the United States in 1993 to further his education in the world of veterinary care. He completed a three-year residency in rural animal medicine at the University of Florida in 1998, and obtained his Master’s degree in science from the university in 2000. He’s been working in private practice ever since! Dr. Giangreco joined the Royal Oaks Veterinary Hospital in 2003 on a part-time basis, and transitioned to a full-time role in 2016.

Dr. Giangreco and his wife have three wonderful sons, a German shepherd named Lima, and Jackie the Chihuahua. When he isn’t spending time with his family or caring for the area’s pets here at the hospital, Dr. Giangreco loves listening to music and especially likes discovering new artists and bands.

Dr. Kelly Dwyer


Experiencing the unconditional love and friendship of her childhood dog, Curtis, left a permanent impression on Dr. Kelly Dwyer. When she was asked on a test in the fourth grade what she wanted to be when she grew up, Dr. Dwyer had one unequivocal answer: a veterinarian! Her dream hasn’t changed since she was eight years old.

Dr. Dwyer is originally from Winter Haven, Florida, where she first started volunteering with animal hospitals at a young age. After attending community college and graduating with honors, she transferred to the University of Florida to earn her degree in microbiology and chemistry, working summer jobs with the United States Department of Agriculture on breaks from school. Next, she attended the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine to earn her Doctorate in 1999.

Dr. Dwyer opened Royal Oaks Veterinary Hospital in 2003 after serving as Chief of Staff at a corporate practice. She’s particularly fond of challenging internal medicine cases as well as geriatric care, and loves to improve a senior pet’s quality of life in whatever way she can. Most of all, Dr. Dwyer enjoys meeting the area’s pet owners and their beloved companions on a daily basis.

Aside from her interests in the world of veterinary care, Dr. Dwyer is an avid reader and also loves to practice yoga. She and her husband have three children named Eli, Caleb, and Gabriel, as well as two wonderful dogs who go by Jackie and Lina.
