  • One of the Best

    -Anne from Los Angeles, CA
    Pet Name: Jake

    Pet Image Our visit was great. I appreciate the cleanliness of the hospital, the knowledge of the staff, and the warmth and caring of the doctors. They treated our pet like he was one of their own. It was a great visit!

  • Angelus

    -Tina from Sarasota, FL
    Pet Name: Angelus

    Pet Image I just moved to Sarasota a few months ago in hopes of getting a new job. Finally I got one!! But getting on our feet has been really hard financially. So when our siamese cat Angelus got an abscess on his face we were horrified because we didn't know what to do, we were just getting back on our feet and not really financially able to handle a big vet bill. I called them a few minutes after they had closed and they still answered the phone. I live right across the street and she agreed to see Angelus right away. They not only treated my cat with love and respect they treated us with respect to our financial difficulties as well giving us many different options and recommendations. I will never go to another vet after my experience. It almost brings tears to my eyes at how kind and warm hearted these professionals are. God Bless them all.

  • Very Caring

    -Breanna from Sarasota, FL
    Pet Name: Nike

    Pet Image In September of 2007 we sadly had to put our beloved Italian Greyhound, Nike, to sleep. The Staff at Lockwood Ridge were very caring and sat and talked us through the situation. They also sent a sympathy card in the mail which was greatly appreciated. Nike had gone to that vet for a while and during his pancreatitis surgery they treated him like royalty. They care for their patients like they are their own pets. I recommend this office in Sarasota to anyone. RIP NIKE July 1995 - September 10, 2007
