Exceptional Care and thoughtfulness
We recently had to put our pet to rest. The care and attention in handling this very difficult situation was well managed and thoughtfuly handled. Dr. Lynn Encarnacion personnally made two house calls on a Saturday and Sunday to help us. Our pet was too ill to travel and we want to bury him at home. The staff actually opened the office on a Sunday morning so the Dr. could retreive the medication need. Their and her services made a most challanging situation more managable.
Price Range: $100 - $200

Not a better vet within 45 miles!
We have been taking our 2 ,now 8 year old beagles, to Dr. Dana and his staff for the past 4 years. The first week we moved here, one was sick & we appreciated the fact that Dr. Dana Walstead wasn't too quick to "rush' into giving her pills and run all kinds of tests like the vet we just left in Atlanta had done just for the past several months earlier for the same issue. Instead, he used good judgement and seemed to know how to treat her with minimal meds and her problem never returned! After spending several hundred dollars on all those tests & meds in Atlanta that never even worked!

For the past 4 years, because of the extra attention he & Dr Suzanne & staff have given my girls, we have only had to go in on 1 other occassion until we moved 45 miles away to St. Peterburg. We had already interviewed several vets &/or staff in the St. Petersburg area and just didn't get the same feel for any of them as Dr. Dana Walstead & his staff. So, we had pretty much decided we'd take the girls back to him for their annual "check-up" but we had an emergency (the other beagle, this time)and one got very sick about a month before our "check-up". We were torn as to whether to make the drive for a very sick dog 45 miles to Ellenton Aniumal Clinic & I'm so glad we did! After our first visit with this emergency, he spent days on the phone with me asking how my little beagle was doing & explaining the serious and often fatal illness she had. He was very careful with his diagnosis and helped me decipher what was truth and not truth about what I had read on-line. Our little girl is well on her way to being much better and we will have to continue to go for several more visits to make sure she continues her successful recovery. We are so happy that we stayed with Dr. Dana and will tell anyone, he is well worth the drive. Although he is a VERY busy man himself, he will take the time to talk with you and work with you in the explanations and treatment options and discuss the prices of each. And he will never recommend unecessary tests, vaccines and medications-which is something we felt like the vets in our new hometown were doing just by speaking to their staffs & listening to our new neighbors. He is much more discriminating in his diagnosis and knowledgeable than the 4 or 5 vets we have spoken to inthis part of Florida. I do not want to say that they are not good, but in my opinion, Dr. Dana just seemed to have a certain edge that the others do not have! Not to mention, he saved my little beagle's life! We would highly recommend him to anyone in the South Tampa Bay & Sarasota area! Sincerely, The Hendersons

Was SO pleased with 1st appt, then 2nd appt a NIGHTMARE..
I was so happy to find this congenial vet conveniently located near my new home! I was thoroughly satisfied with my first appt; but took my pup the following week for a recommended dental cleaning. Upon picking up my little guy following the cleaning, I was informed numerous teeth had been pulled - without even a phonecall to alert me during the procedure! I had asked at the first visit the previous week, if my pup would lose any teeth during his cleaning. The vet then briefly re-examined my pup's mouth, pushed on several of his front teeth, and said possibly one or two. I was saddened by the possibility of him losing one or two, so you can only imagine my shock and disbelief upon picking him up to find, they had not only pulled possibly one or two, but ELEVEN! Needless to say, I was devastated, since my little guy is only four. I have another pup, same breed, that had his teeth cleaned in Ohio, that did not lose one tooth at his cleaning at this same age. My husband and I realize that all dogs are different, but come on, 11 teeth without as little as a phonecall to prepare us. Needless to say, we will unfortunately not continue to use this practice. This was a nightmarish experience, that I would have highly considered going elsewhere for a second opinion before allowing them to pull that many teeth, had I been made aware! They may give great care at this practice, but one may want to ask questions before taking their beloved pet there for a dental cleaning, as I was and still am extremely disappointed and quite unhappy that my pup is missing most of his front teeth at this young an age! Don't get me wrong, I do realize that our pup was in dire need of a good dental cleaning, but I feel common courtesy would have been for the practice to give us a call to alert us. This has left me forever wondering whether my pup truly needed this many teeth pulled.

Years of great service! by Debbie S. at InsiderPages
Dr. Dana, his partners, and staff have been taking care of me and my pets for years now. I've had one dog die of cancer, I lost a cat to liver failure, and my current baby is doing great! Everyone at Ellenton Animal hospital has always been competent and caring. Dr. Dana treated and gave me many years with my pets even after their, eventual, terminal diagnosis' and euthanasia. I am not only a patient, but I am also a professional Pet Sitter that they endorse, which I greatly appreciate! I can be found at www.pawzntails.com ~ Debbie

One of the best by Joseph D. at InsiderPages
We have two Shiz-Tzu's whom are just as much our children as our human child is to us, and after being with an animal hospital in Sarasota for a while, we decided to choose a different one because of the rotating vets at the other hospital.

We wanted to build a relationship with our vet just as a person wants to build a relationship with their family physician. So we decided to interview the doctor at the Ellenton Animal Hospital, and right away knew that Dr, Dana would be the kind of doctor that we wanted.

Both the doctor and the staff have treated my family with nothing but the utmost respect and have treated my two kids VERY well. The doctor is a no-nonsence kind of person who believes in trying simple, home remedies when applicable instead of trying to sucker you out of more money by tell you that you need some expensive proceedures.

All I can say is Thank you to the staff of Ellenton Animal Hospital for treating us so well.
