The combined efforts of our founding doctors have rapidly grown the practice over the last two decades. The central theme behind the expansion of their hospital, since opening in 2003, is addressing the specialized needs of the equine patient. Florida’s 3 billion dollar equine industry varies from pleasure horses, intensively trained show horses and impeccable breeding operations to some of the fastest race horses in the country. With that in mind, the hospital has been staffed with veterinarians capable of providing care to each of the equine disciplines.

Within the practice, specific equine responsibilities are directed to veterinarians specializing in that particular problem area. We believe that this personalized care has played a major role in our rapid and early success with clients in Marion County and surrounding areas.
