At Palm Harbor Animal Hospital, your pet is more than just a patient – they’re family.
Palm Harbor Animal Hospital serves Northern Pinellas County and the surrounding area. Our doctor and staff know that your pet is an important member of your family, and we strive to provide them with the same loving care we give our own pets. We’re a small intimate hospital that firmly believes compassion and kindness are an important part of healing. From our friendly front desk crew to our skilled technical staff, you’ll find your pet in expert hands whether they’re in for healthy pet care or a serious illness, and you’ll always be welcomed with a smile and a friendly word. We are dedicated to serving your pets with compassion, common sense care, and commitment. We believe that the best medicine is preventative medicine and are proactive in our approach to keeping your pet healthy. We do not distinguish between the best care and affordable care. To us they are the same thing. Like you, we want to provide your pet with a long and healthy life and are committed to being a lifelong friend, advisor and advocate for their health. We know that bigger is not always better and that each pet and owner is unique. Our intimate, team oriented approach allows us to get to know you and your pet personally. We think outside the box and are always looking for the best way to meet your pet’s individual needs. Dr. Sullivant has been serving the patients of Palm Harbor Animal Hospital since 2002. The hospital was founded in 1980 by Dr. Thomas Jezek who retired in 2014. Today we carry on a tradition of family oriented veterinary medicine, where pets are more than just patients. This philosophy thus far has allowed us to serve up to three generations of clients with their pets. We at Palm Harbor Animal Hospital would love the opportunity to serve you and your pets in the future. Interested in working with us? Check out our employment opportunities.
