Don’t see your pet on the list?

If you have a unique pet that isn’t on this list, just call us and ask! We’ll let you know if we can see them here, or give you the name of another trusted veterinarian we can refer you to.

Get started today by giving us a call at 941-312-7035, and we’ll schedule you with a veterinarian who loves seeing all different kinds of pets.

We look forward to meeting you and your furry (or feathery, or scaly) family member soon!

Wildlife

If you find an injured wild animal (such as a songbird or turtle), please give us a call. We can care for them and then release them back into the wild.

Note: We can only accommodate certain small species of wildlife, so please call ahead of time to be sure we can accept the animal that you’ve found. Unfortunately, we also cannot accommodate species that are known to carry rabies, such as raccoons and foxes.
