I have lived all over the country, and one of the most difficult things to do when you move is to find a good veterinarian/animal clinic. When I first arrived in FL, I had just adopted a puppy mill rescue. She was a 5-yr old Yorkie, and when she was rescued, she had a number of physical ailments. I did not know that one of them would be congestive heart failure. Missy went into heart failure one afternoon right after we moved, and I had no idea what was wrong with her. I called the few people I know here who have dogs, and every single one of them recommended Dr. Hicks at Westside Animal Clinic. I called ahead to explain what was happening, and when I arrived 15 minutes later, the staff was at the door waiting for us. They took Missy from me and immediately began working on her. I was a mess but the staff assured me that Missy was in the best hands. After having lived the past few hours in anguish and then getting the exceptional care and response from everyone at Westside, I felt like we were where we should be. No question. A short time later, I met with Dr. Hicks, and he explained in detail what he believed the problem was - CHF. He shared with me everything he knew about the disease and how they would treat Missy and what his expectations were. I also had to leave Missy for the night but there was no question that she was in the absolute best care possible. Also, the staff went out of their way to make sure I was going to be ok, too. And I was right. I have never worked with such a top-notch, smart, compassionate, personable, and knowledgeable vet and staff. Everyone treated us like we were family. When I came for Missy the next day, she was breathing better but she was not out of the woods. We went back each day for fluids, to check on her progress and to adjust her meds. It was touch and go for a few days but after one week, Missy was able to breath freely without wheezing, she started eating, and her personality was returning. Dr. Hicks saved her life, and I will always be eternally grateful to him and his staff. I am also grateful to those who referred me to Dr. Hicks at the start. I will never take my dogs anywhere else. Nobody compares to the top-notch level of animal care and customer care that Westside provides. They love what they do, and it shows. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do.

My adopted 9 month old German Shepherd, Carly, had her (OSS) ovary sparing spay at Silverthorn Animal Clinic with Dr. Gerald Johnson. Dr. Johnson was AMAZING!! and he took his time to examine my pup before surgery, and to fully explain the procedure and what I should expect afterwards, and he took time to answer all questions I had, and to x-ray and examine my pup's hips to see if both were affected with dysplasia or not. The rest of the staff at Silverthorn was extraordinary as well; everyone there was very kind, happy, and accommodating, even to let my pup come in the exit door to avoid seeing other dogs, since she can often gets overly excited and barks. I drove two hours to have my pup's OSS surgery here, and I only wish this vet were closer to my home, so I could make them my everyday vet; they are that Awesome. Oh, and during the procedure, my pup had bloodwork and an IV, and was sent home with antibiotics, pain meds, and a soft comfort cone, instead of one of those hard, plastic cones. They also allowed me to have my pup's teeth cleaned, and to have x-rays taken of her hips while she was out to save on time and anesthesia costs, and her nails were given a complementary clipping as well. The soft cone is great to keep on my pup during car rides and whenever she's crated and not wearing her suitical recovery suit for her, which is awesome. Thank you, again, Silverthorn doctors, specialists, and staff!
Westside Animal Clinic has NEVER let me down in nearly 30 years of taking my fur family members to them. I wouldn't take them anywhere else. I highly recommend Westside Animal Clinic to anyone who desires their pet get top of the line care, at a reasonable price, coated with compassion, empathy when necessary, and just an all around love for the critters they see every day. The veterinarians are knowledgeable and keep up with new developments that make diagnosing and treating my fur family quicker and less painful for them. The staff is overwhelmed some days, when they have several emergencies on top of their daily patients. I've watched them handle these days professionally while still maintaining their compassion for EVERY patient that comes through the doors. EXCELLENT, CLEAN, CLINIC WITH THE BEST OF DOCTORS AND STAFF. THANK YOU WESTSIDE FOR ALL YOU'VE DONE FOR MY FUR FAMILY OVER THE YEARS!!!
It was a wonderful experience for my pets (kids) & me!! Sharon arrived on time & gave so much patience, love & care grooming Lucky!! He's a 1yr old very hyper active mixed breed rescued little guy! He behaved so well for Sharon because he received lots of love from her. We also have Princess she's 14yrs old suffering from Arthritis. She doesn't like to get touched much,but Sharon was able to get her to stay! I was amazed & thankful how Sharon made sure she didn't stress her out. It was also nice not to have to drive back & forth to get them groomed, it saves time & money! Sharon is our friend & groomer for always! God Bless her!!!
The Veterinarian's and staff at Westside are outstanding professionals who provide excellent service. We have been taking our 4 pups to Westside Animal Clinic ever since we retired to Florida .The staff is very dedicated in their care for our pets and exhibit empathy. In addition to his regular practice, Dr. Hicks is a board certified veterinary cosmetic surgeon and Botox therapist. Dr. Hicks has limited his practice of cosmetic surgery to dogs, cats and certain reptiles. He is also certified in the fields of canine, feline, bovine, large mammal and avian proctology.
We recently moved to Brooksville and didn't have a local vet. When our older Dane needed vet care we were recommended to Silverthorn. We heartily recommend Silverthorn Animal Clinic for your pet needs. Our older Dane, nearly 11 years old was fit into their schedule on the same day and Dr. Johnson and his staff showed compassion and professional care in our time of need. We look forward to a long relationship with Silverthorn Animal Clinic, Dr. Johnson and the caring staff (yes you Maria!).
I have been showing and breeding my dogs for over 20 yrs. and have lived in several areas of the country so I have used MANY veterinary clinics for my dogs needs. Dr. Johnson and his staff are one of the best. They really show caring compassion not only for your pet but for you as well. Dr. Johnson blends conventional veterinary medicine w/ holistic to best care for your pet. And should you need chiropractic care he can quickly do that. I highly recommend Silverthorn Animal Clinic.
This place is awesome. They are a brand new clinic and I went in right when the doors opened. Right away, I was greeted with a friendly staff. The doctor was very knowledgable and gave me some options as to how to go about my dog. I was expecting a higher bill but it came out to be quite cheap ($87 to be exact. For some medicine and inital visit fee) I will def be back to bring my other dog. Dr. Johnson, thanks so much!
I took my dog to them,they told me she was hurt really bad so under distressed I sign my dog over.I thought she was going to die.They fixed her,but there keeping her,going to adopt her out.I'm happy to say the staff and I worked it out and Lexi is back home.I'm so glad.
