Palm Harbor Veterinarians featuring one of the Few Certified in Exotic Bird Medicine

At our Palm Harbor animal hospital, we know that when it comes to high quality pet and bird care, it's the little things that truly make the biggest difference. Our state-of-the-art in-house lab ensures immediate test results, so we know within minutes, rather than hours or days, exactly how we can best help your pet get healthy. We use the safest anesthesia available, isoflurane anesthetic gas, which ensures your pet wakes up quickly with less drowsiness than traditional injectable anesthetics. Our fiber optic surgical equipment is used for biopsies and micro-surgical procedures on birds as small as parakeets. Our minute incisions ensure fast healing and greatly reduce the risk of infection. These are just a few of the things we do each day to ensure your pet receives high quality care.

Our Palm Harbor veterinarian Dr. Joel Murphy was one of the first veterinarians in the world to be awarded Board Certification in Exotic Bird Medicine. This advanced specialty requires four years of additional training and testing following the customary eight years of veterinary school. Dr. Murphy founded the Murphy Exotic Bird Research Center, one of the largest non-profit centers for the study of exotic birds, including avian nutrition, breeding and medicine, which was featured on Good Morning America.

Our veterinarian is fully experienced caring for a wide variety of animals. From your new puppy's first vaccinations to specialized care for your senior pet, we're with your family for every step of your pet's life. Rather than wait for illness or injury, our Palm Harbor animal hospital strives to provide proactive wellness care to protect your pet's health.

In addition to Dr. Murphy's extensive experience with bird care and surgical procedures, he has also studied holistic veterinary medicine for over 20 years. We're proud to provide a unique blend of traditional and holistic care for your pet, including high-quality holistic supplements that can keep your pet healthy and active for years to come.

Collectively, our Palm Harbor veterinarian and staff own 20 dogs, 29 cats, 6 birds, 9 snakes, countless fish and lizards, and one horse - and we have over 60 years of combined experience. We put our knowledge and expertise to work for you, treating your pets just like the family members they are.

Our Palm Harbor animal hospital is conveniently located to serve the Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, Oldsmar, Clearwater and Ozona. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer any questions you may have about your pet's care, including vaccinations and pet nutrition.
