What I love most about what I do:  What I love most about what I do: I absolutely love learning new and interesting things about animals. Every day, it seems like I learn something that I did not know before. I love helping pets and seeing the impact that our job is making on them. 

Who I am when I'm not at Davis Animal Hospital: I graduated from the University of West Florida in May 2015 with a Psychology degree. I am a caring best friend, loving daughter, and annoying little sister. I have been to Italy, Switzerland, Germany, France, and planning on traveling a lot more in the future. I am an Alpha Delta Pi sorority alumna and take part in events when I can. I love going to the beach and hanging out with my friends and family doing whatever we can as long as we are all together.  Currently taking classess with Penn Foster to get certified as a veterinary technician and planning to go to University of Tennessee to become a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner. 

You would be surprised to know that: You would be surprised to know that: I had back surgery when I was 21 and still roll around with your pets all of the time! :) 

If you are the owner, Please take a moment and tell us in your own words what is going on with your pet.

If you are a veterinarian, the referral form link is at the top of this page.

Please note that you might have to wait a bit longer than normal to be seen due to the unpredictable nature of referral appointments.

Your pet should not eat the night before their appointment after 5 pm. Water is fine, even in the morning. This is in case your pet has to be sedated for any reason.  

Also, do not administer pain medications 12 hours before your appointment time so we can better assess your pet's pain level.

Please bring with you:

  1. Your pet’s medications

  2. Copies of your pet’s x-rays (if applicable)

  3. A single serving meal (if staying the night)

If you cannot make your appointment, please contact our office at least 24 hours in advance. There may be a charge for no-shows.

Your consultation fee is $135.00. This fee will be applied towards your surgical cost if surgery is performed or scheduled that day. The consultation fee does not include the cost of any additional sedation, x-rays, or medications. An estimate of these procedures will be given to you for consent prior to being performed. 

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, local check, and cash.  

We accept Wells Fargo Health Advantage Card with a 12 month deferred interest payment plan.
Visit Wells Fargo for more information and to get approval.

We accept Care Credit with a 6 month deferred interest payment plan for visits exceeding $200.   
Visit Care Credit for more information and to get approval.

We are located at 8560 N Davis Hwy in Pensacola.
We are approximately one mile from Hwy 90 and Interstate 10, just north of West Florida Hospital.

Because of our relationship with your current veterinarian, we will not accept your pet in our practice for general care, only referral care.

If you have any questions, please contact Peyton or April at our office at 850-479-9484.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you and your pet!
