Our motto is “Caring Only Requires Love” and we have plenty of love as well as plenty of advanced resources, tools, and facilities to administer our veterinary care.
Our services include check-ups, annual exams, and preventative medicine (wellnessplans). We offer a full range of vaccinations that include rabies, distemper, kennel cough, and the newest rattlesnake vaccine.
We have our on call, Board Certified, Ultra-sonographer specialist, available for your pet’s needs.
Our surgical procedures include; spay, neuter, orthopedics, and internal procedures as well as other intricate surgeries such as (i.e.: ACL(Cruciate) repairs).
We are not limited to dogs and cats, either. We also treat the exotic pets of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Lakewood Ranch.
We also provide guidance, recommendations and assessments on exotic pet housing, lighting, vitamins, diet and health care.
Emergencies that cannot wait are always accommodated during our regular hours. We have the facilities and expertise to treat emergencies that include vehicular injuries, poisoning from ingestion of snail bait, chocolate or other toxic and potentially lethal materials, as well as respiratory distress or severe medical management situations.
Please call ahead, if possible, so we can advise on proper treatment until the pet reaches the emergency room. We also want to prepare our emergency team, which consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians who work together to save a pet’s precious life.
Urgent Pet Care Services
Urgent care needs of pets in Sarasota, Bradenton, and Lakewood Ranch regions are also accommodated. If a pet has a condition that is not life-threatening but cannot wait for a regular office visit, call and explain the concern. Our experienced staff can advise on the best options and try to fit a visit in between scheduled appointments.

Animals Are In Compassionate Hands At Our Veterinary Clinic
I wasn’t holding my breath that a vet would work hard to help diagnose my leopard gecko. I was wrong. The doctor worked hard to diagnose why our pet lizard stopped eating & ran a battery of tests.
Vets and staff are knowledgeable and efficient. Clean and friendly Vet office. My dog now goes in to see her Vet with out balking.
Dr. Fink was just super with the Bruiser on his last visit. The entire staff was attentive, caring and professional. We would highly recommend University Animal Clinic to all who love their pets and want the best care for them.
All employees are amazing with animals. I am glad I found a Vet’s office that makes me feel that my 5 months old puppy is in the best hands
Even with full covid-19 protection our Basset was well cared for by the staff, I received detailed home care instructions and got a ‘checking on you’ call the next day. Our basset is on the way to revovery. Perfect outcome. Great caring friendly staff.
Met Dr. Sam and Dr. Fink today and was very impressed. We have been a client of University Animal Clinic since it opened with Dr. Rill. My wife and I feel very comfortable with these ladies and plan to keep our relationship with them. The staff and Dr’s are very helpful and friendly.
The very best of care, the entire staff always gives their all and truly cares about both patient and parents! You won’t find a better clinic in Sarasota.
My dogs, Max and Leo, always have a very positive experience at UAC. The staff is friendly and professional. The office is efficient and clean. I appreciate the ability to check on the dogs’ vaccinations, etc., on the pet portal. Great vet practice.
The entire staff was friendly and professional. Dr. Sam was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and eased my anxiety. Even though I was worried they comforted me, answered all of my questions, and took great care of my fur baby.
It is very difficult to find an avian vet who is kind while not sugar coating what can be bad news. I had no idea conures get cataracts as they get older, helped me understand my bird’s actions. The Dr. is wonderful!
