Pet Owner Information

Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida (ASH) is the only 24-hour specialty hospital in Southwest Florida with board-certified specialists in five different fields, which allows us to offer the most comprehensive care for your dog or cat. Our state-of-the-art hospital features a full-service ICU; isolation ward; three sterile surgical suites; five exam rooms and private patient visitation room. We also have an in-house rehabilitation center, blood bank, comprehensive laboratory, and pharmacy. Our diagnostic imaging capabilities include ultrasound, endoscopy, and digital radiography and fluoroscopy.

At ASH, our motto is “Exceptionally skilled. Uniquely compassionate.” And that is the crux of our hospital.

We're honored to partner with primary care veterinarians to support and treat patients who receive the most challenging and complex diagnoses. We work alongside the referring veterinary community to deliver well-rounded care for our patients, and we place a special emphasis on open communication.
