About Us


Lake City, FL veterinary care!

Welcome to Caring Hands Animal Hospital, your North Florida champions of quality and compassionate pet care.

We’re pleased to provide a wide variety of veterinary services for animals in Lake City and surrounding areas.

Our team is dedicated to providing the best care possible for your pets, and in 2008 we were proudly certified by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) – only 15% of small animal hospitals achieve this accreditation. You can learn more about AAHA’s standards for their members by clicking here.

Our facility is equipped with an in house laboratory, digital x-ray, ultrasound, dental x-ray, allergy testing and immunotherapy, and multi-perimeter patient monitoring systems . This helps our doctors diagnose and treat most problems as quickly as possible. We also maintain excellent relationships with nearby specialists should your pet need referral for specialized care.

Just one of the things that makes Caring Hands Animal Hospital so unique is that we really care about making your pets well and keeping them that way.

We’re open Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and from 8 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. If you have an after-hours emergency, please call University of Florida Emergency Service at 352-392-2235.
