Dr. Hansen is the absolute best! He is so compassionate and caring. We have been going to him for years and have had nothing but good experiences. When we had to put our beloved pet to sleep due to cancer he couldn't have been more supportive and compassionate. He even took the time to hand write a sympathy card extending his condolences for the loss of one of our dearest friends. If you treat your pets like family then Animal Care Center is the place to take them!

They are the best at what they do! They have reasonable fees and I drive 32 miles and pass numerous offices to see Dr.'s Jane and June. My four dogs have seen them for the past 10 years!

This vet is the best. We had Dr. Hansen for several years before. The people there are very compassionate and caring. I would recommend this vet to everyone.

no better vet in JAX. Been a client at least 15 years with many visits over the time period. My highestrecommendations.
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
