Our South Tampa Veterinary Hospital Has Been Caring for Your Pets for Over 50 Years! 

Welcome to Dale Mabry Animal Hospital, where you and your pets are part of the family! We are a team of three veterinarians with  a support staff of CSRs, veterinary technicians, and kennel technicians. We all take great pride in providing your family with the most compassionate and up-to-date veterinary care possible.

We offer a full menu of services designed to keep your pet happy and healthy for many years to come. Just a few examples include:

No matter the service you require, our highly-qualified veterinary staff is dedicated to making sure that you’re comfortable with the care your pet is receiving every step of the way. Our practice places a strong focus on educating pet owners so they are empowered to make the best and most informed decisions for their family.

We understand that the modern schedule is extremely demanding, and it can be hard to make time for your pet’s veterinary care. That’s why we offer drop-off service for current clients. Simply call to make an appointment and drop your pet off in the morning before you head to work and we will follow up with you later in the day when it's convenient to meet with the veterinarian and pick up your pet.  There’s no need to wait around for your appointment - we take care of your pet during the day until you can return and speak with your doctor.

Testimonial

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I recently adopted a cat and noticed symptoms of a URI. I moved to Tampa recently and needed to find a vets office. I ended up calling and they squeezed me in for an appointment for the next day. Even though it was curbside, I felt as though I was involved in every step of the process. Dr. Johnson is amazing. She was extremely kind, comforting and thorough when explaining her recommended treatment plan. Any questions I had, she was more than happy to answer. They will definitely be my cats permanent vets office. Extremely happy with this visit."
  • "I have been bringing my 9 year old yellow Labrador Brooks to Dale Mabry Animal Hospital 7+ years (spent the first 2 years of Brooks' life in Tallahassee, Go Noles!) and have never had anything but excellent experiences. Dr Moore, Dr Leavengood, and Dr Bimonte have all provided top notch care to Brooks. The docs are thorough, patient, very knowledgeable, and truly seem to enjoy caring for their patients. Front desk staff and techs are always happy, friendly, and quick to get things figured out. I never feel like this group is selling me on unnecessary treatments or pushing extra expenses. I trust their recommendations are always in the best interest of my pup and would recommend anyone looking for a vet go straight to Dale Mabry Animal Hospital."
  • "Dr Moore is awesome!! He has got to be one of the most compassionate people I think I have ever met. He and his team of the greatest staff who seem to all work as a family and they are not even related treated me and my family as if we were the most important individuals there. My animals are all doing wonderful thanks to the Dale Mabry Animal Hospital. Honestly I have nothing bad to say their facility was clean, staff was friendly and caring, but most of all they made it possible for me financially a single mother on disability to be able to provide care to my dog when she so sick, because of all them and their love and devotion to animals my dog Sasha is doing great. All I can say is KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.....AS Jan 2018"
