We had been patients of Dr. Tanko's for at least 17 years. I had taken my eldest dog in for a anal glad squeezing and within a week noticed my dog's rear end did not look right. Took her to another vet because he was not in office that day and she had a tumor which had to be removed. I had talked to the office to tell them my experience and as to why another vet's office called for records and they said they would have Dr. Tanko call me and he never did. I feel sometimes that they are not sincere in their dealings with you as a customer and am very disturbed I never heard from Dr. Tanko when I had been a patient after 17 years with 3 different dogs. Regardless, of how his office feels about me and my pets personally, they should be concerned that they missed a tumor and didn't even care to pick up the phone and call me. Very sad and disappointing.

Be aware that if the Vet Clinic of Palm Harbor makes a mistake in diagnosis, their responsibility entirely, it is still your financial obligation to pay. They do not budge on the matter as their integrity and reputation is for sale for a mere $ 256.80.

Dr Tanko and staff are excellent! They never hurry and are quite practical. I have had vets before that had no problem spending your money. My Pet Animal Hospital will work on solutions that won't break the bank and continue to be in the best interest of the pet! LOVE IT! Thank you! I would recommend!

I have taking my dog there for 11 years. Today I went in for a follow up appointment that I was told would be free and I was charged $85 for less than 5 minutes in the exam room. When I called to talked to Dr Tanko about it he refused my call and wasn't professional enough to call me back. Consider another vet. Customer service isn't their concern.
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
