Our Services

We provide fast and gentle treatment for your sick animal as well as comprehensive wellness exams for your pets throughout the year. Remember, regular check-ups can detect disease in the early stages, improving your pet’s ability to fight back. 

One of the advantages of being a family-owned hospital is that you are always treated like family.  Our doctors are focused on continuity of care and client communication is our highest priority.  

With a over 40 years of combinded veterinary experience, Dr. David Watkins and Dr. Morgan Watkins Tiefenthal are comfortable performing most procedures performed in veterinary practices today.  When confronted with a challenging and difficult case that our doctors feel would be better served by a specialist, our doctors will refer the pet to one of the very competent veterinary specialists that Sarasota is lucky enough to have locally.  Feel free to ask about specialty care if you have any questions.

Emergencies after hours are referred to Suncoast Veterinary Emergency.  The facility is staffed all night so that your pet can see a doctor and be under their care until they are transferred to our team here at the Animal Health Center.
