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.
"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.
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 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.
