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
Yesterday was our first visit to this clinic. I brought my 6 year old Goffin Cockatoo Chance in for a wellness check and nail trim and also to discuss her ongoing feather plucking issues. Dr. Leigh Samanowitz was Amazing as were all the staff.
We’ve always had a great experience at University Animal Clinic. The doctors and team are all very knowledgeable and friendly. They get back to you in a timely manner and work with you when it comes to scheduling appointments.
I’m from New Jersey and our dog was hit by a car the day we arrived. The staff at the clinic were amazing. We went to the cliniceget out dog’s stitches out and both JJ (the nurse) and Dr. Sam both sat on the floor to make him feel comfortable.
Dr Sam was very sweet, knowledgable and took the time to explain everything to me. The nurses and front desk staff were wonderful.
Dr Sam and staff are friendly, knowledgeable and truly care about your pets health and happiness! We wouldn’t trust our babies with any one else.
Very nice and welcoming entree, king and professional vet and nurse. Thank you very much, I will come back and be happy to recommend you

The team at University Animal Clinic is so compassionate and caring, organized and punctual, responsive and appreciated!! Thank you so very much for all of your support and expertise.
I took my galah Rosie for a general physical. The staff and vet took the time to show me (as a new bird owner) how to clip nails and wings and what to look for as far as outward signs of her health.
I just moved to Florida, and looking for a veterinarian I came across university animal clinic walking around the plaza so I decided to stop in and get information on the veterinarians, the women at the front desk was so kind and caring, I unfortunately forgot her name.
