A note regarding Veterinary Care Foundation:    Every year Palmetto Animal Clinic provides thousands of dollars of free care to treat pets brought to us by Good Samaritans.  From time to time clients will drop off donations as a way of saying thank you for the loving care that we have provided.  Unfortunately, until now those gifts have not been tax deductible.  The Veterinary Care Foundation is unique in that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to veterinary practices - the Foundations operating costs are totally covered by practice membership dues.  Palmetto Animal Clinic has joined with The Veterinary Care Foundation, please visit the Foundation's website to learn more about how you can help. 

  Thank you for taking the time to read about our veterinary practice and the services we offer. We welcome your comments and suggestions.  Please contact us at (941)722-2456 for all your pet health care needs.
