Our Clients say...

Great veterinarians. Happy with their care.

Cowgirl Country

Lynn Bull has been doing my vet work for 15 + years. Lynn is an awesome lameness vet, one of the best I think. She handled all of the reproduction work and was marvelous. Plus the many weird cases I seem to get. Lynn really cares about the horses and becomes very involved with each case. She is ALWAYS there for me and the clients there just are not the words to praise her enough.

Bettina S.

Dr. Joel Lugo, DVM is the BEST doctor and surgeon in Florida! I always get the utmost care for my horses! If you want an awesome vet that can diagnose, treat and maintain your most prized possession horse(s), then Dr. Lugo is your vet!

Edie K.

Very professional and caring staff with the best vets in the area. 

Patrick N.

Thank you, Dr. Lugo and all of your staff for the awesome care given to my gelding. It was a privilege to watch this group of professionals and Drs work together like a well-oiled machine during surgery! And all of their watchful care post-op. It's a beautiful facility and everyone is helpful from start to finish.
