Whether you are visiting the UF Small Animal Hospital for the first time or returning with your pet; whether are faced with an emergency situation or merely here to obtain a routine check-up for your animal; whether you’ve come a long distance or a short one, we want to ensure that your stay at our facility is as comfortable as possible. Our job is to help you understand what to expect before you get here as well as when you arrive.

Need directions? Clarification of financial or visitation policies? We can provide you with this information via this website or over the phone.

Our client services staff is committed to helping you feel more at ease while your pet is being cared for. If you’re interested in where you might grab a bite to eat nearby, or would like to talk about things to do in the Gainesville area to while away a few hours if your pet is receiving a lengthy procedure here, please don’t hesitate to ask any of our front desk staff for assistance.

It is our pleasure to serve you.
