Animal Health Veterinary Clinic
I have been going to this clinic since 2007 and have used Dr.Rodriguez since she came to Florida in 1991. I have used both Dr. Rodriguez and Dr. Colazzos. Both are amazing and have helped my animals with great care and compassion. They always make time to fit me in if I have a concern or feel it is an emergency. Countless times they have gone above and beyond to help one of my pets. Between myself and my family and all of my past rescue animals, I have had the best care I could possibly ask for. They always explain what they think should be done, why they think it should be done, the cost, the benefits, and also the negatives with anything they do. They always answer all of my questions and address all of my concerns in detail. Everything they do is discussed with me in detail so I completely understand what is going on. Anytime my one of my pets had to stay, I was always updated on how they were doing throughout the day. The Dr called and discussed everything with me. Throughout the years I have had to put some of my pets to sleep and the entire staff, Doctors, techs, and office staff came in to console me and comfort me. They made a hard decision easier and made my dogs comfortable the entire time. I could never ask for a better group of people to trust the health care of all my animals. I will never go to another clinic. I would Highly recommend this clinic if you are looking for exceptional care for your pets. I can write pages of the exceptional care and all of the things they have done for my animals, Including walking away from lunch, staying after hours, coming in after hours, answering my questions after hours. The list goes on and on. All I can say that Everyone at this clinic is amazing from office staff to the Doctors.

I love the friendly office staff here and the wonderful care we get from them. I have taken my dog here for two years now and I find everyone to be competent and happy. My dog currently sees Dr. Rodriguez and I can't say enough good things about her. She is on top of things and doesn't spare any expense when it comes to the health of an animal. She works very well with older dogs. I am always nervous putting my dog under, but she's done it twice now and he came through with only minor side effects. (The last vet who put him under had him loopy for almost a week.) I truly wish I could give this place 5 stars, but I can't. The only thing holding me back is the price. This is one of the most expensive vets in the area. She has a tendency to cross all of her t's which really drives the bill up. But you do get what you pay for with quality. I love coming here, but it may not be for everyone due to the high prices.

A Vet To Your Pet
I have had Dr. Helm care for all of my animals since she she began practice in 1987. She is so caring and knowledgable and takes her time answering questions or explaining to me what is the matter with our pet. She saved our puppy after it was born by c-section and wasn't breathing. The care given by her and her staff during that emergency were phenomenal! I have many friends that also take their pets there and they could not be happier. I'm also proud of the fact that Dr. Helm serves on the State Board and National Board of Veterinary Medicine...I think it says a lot about her and her abilities as a doctor and the respect that those in her profession have for her.

Three Oaks Veterinary Service
After leaving my beloved vet of 18 years, I didn't think I could find anyone would compare. After two years of disappointments, one of Dr. Ned's clients recommended him for our family. I don’t consider myself demanding - just caring - and I expect the same from my vet. The staff at Three Oaks Veterinary Service is outstanding and the facilities are immaculate. Dr. Ned has a gentle approach with my four dogs, and his assistants are more than considerate of their needs and different personalities. I have never been disappointed with the service we’ve received. I would recommend Three Oaks to anyone who feels their vet should be a part of the family.

Dr. Ned Szempruch is not only a well-educated veterinarian, but he truly shows loving care and compassion to his "patients". We brought our beloved Jack Russell Terrier, Skamp, to Dr. Ned, and he saved his life. He was able to make a prompt, accurate diagnosis and provide the critical care Skamp needed. Dr. Ned and his wife, Susan, even took Skamp home for the evening so they could watch him more closely. Susan comforted us by texting pictures of Skamp at their house! I do not believe we would have SKamp with us today if it were not for Three Oaks Veterinary Service. Thanks again to Dr. Ned, Susan, and the entire wonderful staff!

This is the best place. By far the best vets office I have ever been to. The staff are absolutely amazing and so professional. They are also compassionate and they really do care about our furry/feathered/scaly families. They take such great care of them and take great care in even the littlest detail. I have been going to them for years and refuse to go anywhere else. I highly recommend Three Oaks Veterinarian. They are absolutely wonderful.

I have been to several veterinarian clinics in the area and Dr. Ned's clinic is by far the cleanest and and most professional. My dog had suffered a terrible fracture of her front leg. We called several clinics and we're told they were closing. It was Dr. Ned who came to our rescue. I can't say enough about his dedication and extensive knowledge. If it wasn't for Dr. Ned my dog would not have had such a successful recovery.-Ally

I don't do these reviews but have to this one. I have never seen a more dedicated, hard working, caring, loving group. I trap cats & they @ a very small fee, spay/neuter, worm & vaccinate them before putting out. They also provide many services to keep your pet health at no charge or for very little. Compassionate Veterinarian, use his services, help with donations.(like old towels-ask staff) MJohnson

Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
