Client Tails

At the Animal Clinic of the Humane Society of Sarasota County, we know that your pets are your family. That’s why your pets will always receive top-notch care at a price you can afford. 

We excel at routine care, but our facility is so much more than vaccines and spays/neuters. We’ve repaired bones, treated wounds, and administered laser therapy all with our in-house technology. The “Client Tails” below are just a few examples of the ways the Animal Clinic of the Humane Society has treated over 5,000 unique patients since we opened in 2016.

We love to hear from our patients. If you have a “Client Tail” you’d like to share, please click on the button below.


Trooper

Trooper enjoyed playing with his green squeaky toy until one day it went missing, and Trooper was not feeling well. After heading to the Animal Clinic of HSSC, he was diagnosed with an unknown foreign body in his stomach. The toy had been found, but now it needed to be removed. Trooper went into surgery and the Animal Clinic of the Humane Society of Sarasota County successfully removed the toy! This sweet boy went home that night and made a full recovery.

Harry & Neville

Two tiny puppies were left in a box at the front door of the Animal Clinic late one night. When a staff member discovered the puppies in the morning, their breathing was labored, and they had no color in their gums or tongues. They were barely clinging to life. The Animal Clinic staff immediately provided emergency medical treatment, hoping to give the pups a fighting chance. We named the puppies Harry and Neville. A staffer bottled fed and cared for them until they were strong enough to be fostered. After a few weeks with their foster family, Harry and Neville were spayed and neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. It wasn’t long before we found them loving families and a happy ending.

An update from Harry & Neville's (now Bentley) adopters:

"As you can see from the two pictures, they are still completely inseparable. We fostered them for HSSC and when we were told there was a very little chance that they would be adopted together, we knew they were meant to stay with us forever! They simply love life...from sleeping on the couch, to swimming in our pool, to playing on the dog beach together. It is evident that they are so appreciative of their second chance at life! Thank you for saving our boys! My oldest daughter, Julie Kleiner, is a volunteer at HSSC and tells everyone what an amazing facility it is. Our seven, yes seven, pets all use your veterinary hospital as our vet...they are terrific!" Sara, Dan, Julie, and Lauren Kleiner...and of course all of our pet kids.


WARNING: Hollow Dog Bones

A sweet Husky arrived at the Animal Clinic in desperate need of help. What his owner thought would be a tasty treat turned into an emergency trip to our veterinarian when the hollow bone become stuck on his lower jaw. The Animal Clinic quickly sedated the dog, assesed removal options, and ended up having to use bolt cutters to safely remove the bone. The Animal Clinic Manager warns pet owners of the dangers of certain bones, "I have been in the field for 24 years and have seen a lot of issues with bones. I have seen them stuck across the roof of their mouth, pieces wedged in the gum line, and not to mention the ones who perforate intestines." Thankfully, the dog only suffered minor scrapes and was sent home with a smile.

Woody

Woody came to the Animal Clinic for heartworm treatment. Now he’s heartworm free and back to his old self. Heartworm disease is transmitted by mosquitoes, and the Florida climate puts dogs and cats at risk. All dogs six months and older should be given monthly preventives and tested for heartworm annually. A year’s supply of preventives is only $70-$100. The cost of treatment can be 10 times the cost of prevention. Learn more about heartworm disease.

Bombay

This sweet kitty arrived with symptoms of a urinary tract infection—a life-threatening condition if left untreated. After testing and treatment at the Animal Clinic, this beautiful feline was once again a healthy boy.
