East West Animal Hospital
My Pekingese mix is somewhat anxious and he doesn’t like anything invasive or he will snap (can’t blame the guy) took him in twice on 2-different occasions and they were not able to administer shots. Vet at the time recommended putting him under anesthesia until they can administer shots. Waited several months to make the appointment, different vetrinarian that now wants a completely different protocol and put him on medicine which I do not want to do. They were not sympathetic at all and told me they didn’t know if the doctor would have “time” to call me back. Huge disappointment.

Pebbles been Dr Ricci's patient for 5 yrs. Dr Ricci and the entire staff are so awesome and very professional. I recommend anyone who own pets to visit this Hospital. We love them all.

The terrible reviews are true! Despite the poor ratings I found on Yelp and other sites, I gave the benefit of doubt to Suncoast Veterinary Care Center in Lutz. They are money-hungry, dime-sucking vultures. The office manager, Mark, is a complete PSYCHO who chased my husband and I out to our car arguing over a mere $15.00. I do not have enough character space in this review to explain the details other than I wouldn't go there if it was my last possible resort in a nationwide radius. I called a new vet the very next day that had good reviews to make an appointment. They chuckled knowing exactly where I was leaving explaining only "they have several new clients"..... GEEZ I wonder why. Reviews speak the truth! Check out Yelp. Look at other vets close by. Don't waste your precious time or your precious pet's time here!!!! I've already filed with Better Business Bureau.

My son and his wife took two healthy dogs and BOTH died. No explanation. With what they know, they feel it was heat stroke. That shouldn't happen to two dogs that were loved and cared for like family.

My dog loves going here. Dr. Sullivan takes excellent care of my little one when we go to the office. The yearly check up went great. Every service is offered to you with out obligation. My dog left wagging her tail, happy as always.

Those of you who frequent Suncoast Veterinary Care Center this is what truly takes place in this facility. All those of you who board their dogs and or cats, please think again. This facility has dogs in cages that do not sufficiently house your dog. There are only two runs for large dogs, when they are full then your dog over 80lbs or more may be put in a large (pop-up) wire kennel where your dog would not be able to stand up or turn around adequately. If you board cats, your cats are put in kennels in the same area as barking dogs, which stresses them out completely. Or your cat may be housed in a wooden cat suite that is located in the facilities' own cat room which houses their cats they have up for adoption as well as their hospital cats. So your cat is being exposed to other cats. Your dog will be in a kennel the entire visit and is only walked outside 3 times just enough to urinate or defecate. Due to the lack of staff available, sometimes they may not be walked all 3 times. This is a miserable and extremely stressful experience for your pets. Please reconsider either, hiring a pet sitter or locating another boarding facility that focuses on one thing, boarding. You may feel your pet is safer being in a pet hospital but that is not the case at this facility. This practice may fool you and come across that they are sincerely and genuinely care about your pet, but in all actuality they are full of greed and disregard of your pet's well-being. They will overbook their boarding during holidays and use pop-up kennels throughout the practice. They have staff members come in for a few hours in the morning to clean, feed, and walk your pet and then again, in the early evening. There is not a staff member there during the lunch hours. I am sharing this information, because I would want to know if a boarding facility was inadequately taking care of my pet, especially a boarding facility that is within a veterinary hospital. Please do the right thing and choose a facility that will be providing your pet the attention and care that he or she needs while you're away. Looking out for your pet's well-being! Sec. 14-107. Conditions and standard of care for breeders, pet dealers and large kennels. (b) Any shelter, cage or containment area shall be of sufficient size to allow the animal in it to fully sit, stand, lie down, turn completely around and stretch.

They are cheaper than other vets. They also do well with neuters and spades. I had most of my cats over the years get spaded or neutered by them and had no problems.

I have never felt ignored or as though I wasn't important when working with this office. Everyone is ultra-attentive and concerned. I love the way they make me part of their community with email newsletters, patient specials, and notices about upcoming events, like Santa Paws!
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
