Dr. Cristina Polit


Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, Dr. Polit felt the call to bring wellness to the wild early on in her life.  From a young age, she immersed herself in the veterinary field, with many memories centering around the veterinarian's office at which she would do an internship and volunteer each day after school. Before graduating from the Universidad Agraria del Ecuador with a Veterinary Degree, she interned during the summers of her last two years of school. Shortly after coming to Florida, Dr. Polit gained experience at various animal hospitals, and then went on to assist two other hospitals as a solo practitioner and decided to pursue her dream of opening her own practice. Presently, Dr. Polit is the owner and Practicing DVM of Sunset Animal Hospital. As her husband and two boys can attest, Dr. Polit's love of animals extends far beyond the practice's walls, with a full-house consisting of five spoiled dogs, two bouncing rabbits, and three aquatic turtles. Her inclusion of animals in her home life mirrors her passion for them at work, and she describes her practice's philosophy as one in which, “We treat animals the same way as humans.” Dr. Polit loves making others happy by making their pets well, and she's always an eager resource for pet owners looking to improve the health or quality of life of their pets. She has a special interest in surgery, exotic pets and is an expert in treating bulldog breeds.
