About Us


Sarasota Veterinary Center

We first opened for business in 1983. Since that time, we’ve been proudly serving the people and pets of Sarasota County as well as Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch providing high-quality veterinary services in a compassionate manner. Dr. Dave Smith purchased the animal hospital in 2006 and quickly integrated his philosophy of practicing preventative medicine with a strong emphasis on outstanding customer service.

dr-smith-with-white-dogDr. Dave likes to surround himself with staff members whose love of animals and compassion is obvious to all who enter our hospital. Nothing is more gratifying than hearing a client say that their pet actually likes to come to our hospital. Our longstanding motto has always been Pets Are Family Too.

Our focus on preventative medicine for pets of all ages stems from Dr. Dave’s vast experience in emergency and critical care. Pets are living longer and he found that preventative care is the key to their well-being and a better quality of life as they age.

Client education is a vital part of providing high-quality care to responsible pet owners. A large percentage of our time is spent on explaining things and answering questions so pet owners can better make informed decisions regarding their pet’s healthcare.

Sarasota Veterinary Center offers a full range of veterinary services including an experienced groomer, air-conditioned boarding year round and nutritious diets, treats and supplements.

A genuine love of animals is the motivating influence in everything we do at Sarasota Veterinary Center. We understand the special bond you have with your pets and we want to be your partner in giving them a long, happy and healthy life.

We encourage you to come in and experience the difference our unique care and service can make in the life of your cherished animal companion. We hope to see you both in our office soon!
