Medical Services

Returning a pet to a happy, comfortable state of health is the highest priority to the veterinarians and staff of Fernandina Beach Animal Clinic. We all know the feelings of anxiety and stress that you have when your companion is ill, from our experiences with our own pets. The first step to making a sick patient better is establishing an accurate diagnosis. A thorough physical examination, combined with appropriate diagnostics, when necessary, is critical. The next step is to treat your pet in the appropriate manner, meeting the standards of care that are constantly evolving in veterinary medicine and surgery. We have a well equipped facility, and we are committed to ongoing training to provide the very best care your pet deserves.
