    This may be a long post but it is well deserved. About two weeks prior to Tuesday my dog started showing signs of either diabetes or a UTI. On Monday Oct 3rd he started throwing up and not eating. I just figured it was a stomach bug and if it wasn't better by the next day we would figure something out. The next day I woke up and had seen that my poor baby was VERY sick. We took him into the office and was seen right away. Within the next 20 mins we had done test results and found out our baby was diabetic and was suffering from pancreatitis. They started an IV right away, gave him an antibiotic, nausea medicine and insulin. His blood sugar was so high that the machine couldn't read it. The next day he was dropped off from 7am-5pm to get fluids and to be monitored. When we arrived to pick him up Dr Lewis gave us the run down. Cosmo's sugar would go down and then sky rocket back up. His insulin wasn't responding with his body. Not knowing what to do they had everyone working search for a solution for him. Dr Wetta and Dr Lewis saved my dogs live. Dr Wetta went on her day off and searched for the insulin she uses just so Cosmo doesn't go into a coma. She brought it to him and they administered him a dose. His sugar was 309 when I got him home that night. Cosmo has a very long road to becoming healthy again. But those two women saved his life. When I dropped him off last week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the lady's in the front take him so gently from me and care for him in the best way. Thank you so much for saving my baby! They all went above and beyond to find him insulin. Above and beyond to treating him. Thank you all ladies. Cosmo says thank you too!



    Academy is fabulous! I have been a regular customer for several years now, and haven't had any bad experiences. The staff is very welcoming and nice. I tried other veterinary clinics before, only to feel like they didn't care about my furbaby. That is what lead me to Academy. After our first visit, I knew we finally found the right place.



    To everyone spewing hate on the basis of a one-sided and self-serving FB post, have you thought, even for a second, that there might be critical facts and details missing? Like that the only doctor there was in the middle of surgery? That the poster refused to sign a consent form authorizing treatment? For an account from another client who was present, search the Jacksonville Daily News website with the clinic name.



    I've been taking my 4 dogs there forever,there is a couple of rude girls at the front desk, but the drs.are awesome.every Sat.between 9-10:30 there is vets at tractor supply, it was time for my dogs to have their yearly heartworm test I Save $250.00 taking them there,instead of academy.



    Academy Animal Hospital has always been very kind and loving towards our 2 dogs. The desk staff are very polite and seem to genuinely love animals, and the techs and vet are knowledgeable, quick and try to make each visit as painless (for your fur baby and you wallet) as possible. I've been to two other vets in the area, and I will keep coming back to AAH for many years to come.



    Academy Animal Hospital is extremely untrustworthy and shows no good morals. I recently took my dog into this vet to get a bump removed from her leg, so she was scheduled to have surgery. Before taking her to her surgery appointment, we decided to shave areas where she had small bumps on her back so that they could also be removed, which was no problem to the vet. After picking my dog up after her surgery, some of the bumps we had shaved around were removed, and some were not. The bump that was on her leg, the main purpose of the surgery, still remained. We called and talked to the doctor, who took no responsibility for her mistake, and were told that if we wanted the bump removed, we would have to pay an additional $65 on top of the $400 that was already spent for the procedure. The lack of responsibility of this veterinarian was completely unexpected. This hospital is apparently unable to take responsibility for its mistakes, but fully willing to take as much money from its customers as possible. This place was reliable many years ago, but its morals and its dignity has completely been diminished.



    The first thing I have to say is, Thank you. Our member of the family passed at this facility and as difficult as it was, they made it a little easier. Compassion and patience for someone who was grieving. As I sat in the waiting room, I saw other families waiting to have their pets seen. Every one of them happy to bring them to this pet hospital. I knew I was at the right place. Today I received a sympathy card from them and it took me by surprise. Sometimes a little gesture goes a long way. Thank you so much for understanding that our pets are family too.

    The staff at Academy Animal Hospital was extremely friendly and helpful with my pet dog. My dog was able to be seen without waiting long and the nurse and Veternarian were both extremely skilled with their jobs. The Vet made sure that I was aware of the procedures she was doing and she showed sympathy for the pain my dog was in. The Vet and nurse advised me of what was wrong with my dog and explained how we could go about making her better. The cost of this visit was what I would expect to pay, it was not extremely cheap nor was it extremely expensive. It was a fair price and I would recommend this Veterinarian Hospital to the other pet lovers out there.


    We had been taking our dog to ...

    We had been taking our dog to another vet for years, with skin/coat problems who were never able to diagnose the issue... Took him to academy, on recommendation from a friend, and they were able to spot the problem right away. They were friendly and helpful and I was so pleased that when it was time to take my17 year old cat to be put to sleep, I wouldn't have trusted anyone else. The doc who helped my cat was empathetic and respectful of my emotions and took her time in explaining the process. You can't buy that kind of customer care during an ordeal like that. I would recommend them to anyone without reservation.

    I have been using this vet cli...

    I have been using this vet clinic for the last seven years, my animals have received the most professional care, to include end of life care, that I could hope for. The vet techs are well trained, and highly capable. front desk staff(the individual's that take a lot of abuse) are also caring and professional; the vets all take time to discuss concerns that I might have about my animal. This is a very busy clinic,yet I have never felt rushed.
