When Dr. Harvey Partridge built the St.Petersburg veterinary hospital in 1978, it was originally named "Riviera Animal Hospital". In 1995, he sold the practice to a corporation of veterinary hospitals named VCA (Veterinary Centers of America). Dr. Partridge left the practice in 2003, and VCA's lease ran out two years later. At that time, the St. Petersburg animal hospital was remodeled and opened under the new name, "Partridge Animal Hospital".
Dr. David Landers began working at Partridge Animal Hospital in St. Petersburg in 2007, and he purchased the practice from Dr. Partridge in 2010.

Products & Services
Wellness CarePrevention is the key to your pet's long term good health. This approach also minimizes the lifetime cost of care. We recommend routine wellness exams, vaccinations, regular laboratory work, deworming and fecal checks; as well as medication to prevent heartworm, fleas and ticks.
Most laboratory tests that your dog or cat needs can be done during a regular exam. This is our chance to get to know your pet, to assess your pet's overall health, discuss any changes we see, educate and update you on advancements in veterinary care, and also, for you to discuss any concerns or questions you may have with our veterinarians.
Keep Up-to-date on your pet's vaccines! We strongly recommend that your pet be up-to-date on vaccines. Vaccinations are not only safe and effective, but they are also an important and fundamental aspect of your pet's preventive healthcare plan. Diseases that once were relatively common and fatal to pets are now easily preventable. There are also vaccines – such as for rabies and other zoonotic diseases – that help protect your family from very dangerous and difficult-to-treat illnesses.
Veterinary X-rays have become a powerful and useful tool. Images can now be taken digitally and displayed on a computer. This means that we can quickly take a high resolution image, and then manipulate it to gain a better view of your pet's bones and internal organs. The result is that diagnosing a very wide range of medical conditions is made faster and can be done far more accurately than ever before.
It's possible to extend your pet's life with proper dental care. Dental hygiene can better your pet's health, vitality and well-being. Veterinary dental care will help ensure your pet leads the best life possible. However, if left untreated, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet's health before symptoms are even present.
