Our caring and compassionate veterinary care team!

If you ask Google, our reviews say we rank with the best of the best when it comes to the quality of our facilities, the level of our technology, and the competence of our professional staff.

We’re not sure if this makes us different from the other vets nearby, but we know for sure what makes Windermere Animal Hospital more than just an animal hospital.
Everyone who works here understands that to our clients, pets are more than animals. And we treat them accordingly.
That’s why work experience and academic credentials aren’t enough to get hired here.
We look for people who are capable of finding joy in the happiness of a freshly groomed dog at check out time. People who understand at a personal level how hard it is to say goodbye to an old friend.
In short, the kind of people you would trust with the health of a family member.
Take a moment to meet them.
Better yet, stop by with your pet for a visit.
You’ll feel the love immediately.
