We switched vets a few years ago from another local vet after realizing the monthly plan we were on was super expensive and we weren’t impressed by the care our dogs were given. We found Animal Hospital and have been much happier with our care and cut our vet bill in half! Animal Hospital takes the time and listens to our concerns. We have co-dependent dogs and they’re always accommodating when I request appointment times together. We have never once regretted switching vets!

We have taken our dogs here a few time for routine immunizations. This time we had to take my sweet older dog in to be put down. I called to make the appointment and the receptionist (Shantell I believe) was so sweet and compassionate. When we went in for the actual appointment the staff was amazing. They gave us all the time we needed to say goodbye and answered every question I had. They were outstanding. I don't know how they made it happen but it truly seemed like we were the only ones in the entire clinic. Today we received a handwritten card from Dr McQuiddy. We are very grateful for the staff and how they handled a very difficult situation.

So caring about both your pet and you, NOT about money. He doesn't do senseless expensive tests or treatments and wants to help you and your pet in the most cost effective way possible. He takes the time to sit down with you and explain things and your best treatment options. All the other staff is wonderful as well.

Customer Testimonials

My dog Charley was a first time visitor but was treated like he was a long lost family member. We came in on a Friday afternoon with a mysterious growth between his paw pads. Dr. Paley made time to perform surgery and remove. Fortunately after pathology it was benign. Glad to have found a Trusted Vet home for when we are at Emerald Isle.


Love everything about them! I switched vets due to the lack of care about my fur babies. I was recommended by so many of my friends to Animal Hospital. 100% would recommend to any fur parent out there.


An emergency with our dog arose over the weekend. He was sick, not eating and very uncomfortable. First thing Monday, I walked in with no appointment and the entire staff went immediately to work to address his needs. The front staff got us back into a treatment room with no delay. The vet tech took the details that transpired over the weekend and documented everything for the vet. He took our dogs vitals and was gentle and effective. The vet was through and completed diagnostics with no delay. He identified the medical issue and began steps to address our dogs needs before we left. The medications he prescribed were spot on and our dog began to show signs of improvement by the afternoon. By the end of day 2, he is back to his former self and showing signs of getting his strength back.

We hadn’t had a dog in more than 12 years and I’m so pleased that we stumbled on to these great folks when he needed a rabies update. It really paid off when the situation became urgent. I couldn’t be more appreciative of this great group and highly recommend them to anyone with a pet. They aren’t new and fancy with their facilities, but they are up to date with their equipment and over the top with their level of care, from the folks up front to the techs in the back and especially the vets. Thank you for being there when we needed you.


Literally one of the best veterinary practices I have ever encountered. My dogs are my babies and I am so glad I found a doctor for them so close to my home and so wonderful. The entire staff is knowledgeable, compassionate, and understanding. I love that they have walk in hours when something unexpected pops up. One of my dogs needed an unexpected surgery during a walk in appointment and it was done that day without hesitation. As long as I live in Jacksonville I will only bring my pets here.


Had a bitoif an emergency with my cat who was suddenly straining to pee. I called & they were able to get me an appt immediately. Dr. Corry was not only incredibly nice but was able to get my cat Odin to pee with absolutely no issue & Odin barely even budged. We walked out with new cat food & the ability in less than an hour it was soooo nice.
He actually helped me with another one of my male cats who has the same blockage issue & was able to help be during a late night ER visit with Zeus. All in all great visit, great helpful staff, & great Vet.
