Care Animal Hospital, founded in 1987 by Dr. Richard Kane, is Hillsborough County’s largest full service mixed animal veterinary facility. Our Brandon, FL animal hospital provides a comprehensive range of services for large and small animals of all species all over the Tampa Bay Area. From dogs and cats, to birds, reptiles, large and small exotics, pocket pets, horses, goats, pigs, zoo animals and everything in between, we will treat them all.
Our Facility and Animal Hospital
Our 15-acre state of the art animal care complex features a beautiful hospital, separate boarding facility and surgical suite, a wildlife rehab and recovery aviary, a petting zoo for orphaned and abandoned animals, and much more…
Behind our animal hospital you will find the West Coast Regional Surgi-Care Center for Horses, a 24-hour emergency equine referral hospital and surgical center.
The complex at Care Animal Hospital and the Surgi-Care Center for Horses, our sister hospital, has a highly trained and professional staff of 10 veterinarians including board certified surgeons, one or more interns, externs, and 25 animal technicians, as well as our courteous and caring receptionists, office managers, and customer service coordinators.
Since dental care has been proven to add years to your pet’s life, we offer a complete dental suite with the latest in digital radiography and equipment.
Additionally, our facility allows our team to work efficiently, while providing the very best level of care and comfort for our patients. Care Animal Hospital features an impressive array of the latest technology and equipment including:
- Radiology Equipment (Digital)
- Complete In-House Laboratory
- Full Service Pharmacy
- In-Hospital Patient Monitors
- Blood Pressure Monitor
Quality equipment allows for faster and more detailed analysis to diagnose and treat our patients. Our technology, however, does not end with equipment. Unlike most animal hospitals, our facility has been “chartless” since 2005. All medical records, x-ray images, lab results, client correspondence, pictures and diagnostic images are kept in each patient’s digital file and available at the touch of a button. Not only is this method more productive for our staff and more efficient for our patients, but it also proves our environmental stewardship to the community.
Our hospital is conveniently located on Bloomingdale Avenue in Brandon, Florida between John Moore Road and Bell Shoals Road across from Grow Financial Credit Union and St. Andrews Church.
Appointments, Walk-Ins, House Calls
We accept appointments and walk-ins and provide a house call service as well as a “Pet Taxi” pick-up and delivery service. Many of our clients find the house call services very convenient when they have multiple pets, farm animals, or those highly anxious special pets that refuse to enjoy the car ride to their friendly veterinarian. We are pleased to serve our patients during extended hours, including lunch hour, for your convenience.
Please feel free to contact our office to schedule an appointment or to learn more about how our caring animal hospital can help your pets enjoy a long and healthy life.
