Dale Mabry Animal Hospital is the best place for my pet dog. All the staff members are awesome and friendly. The vet techs are so efficient & helpful with answers to questions that arise .
The doctors are wonderful. Dr Leavengood has seen my previous pet dog & now he sees my new puppy & she likes him a lot and that is important. Halia has also seen Dr, Moore who she loves. When Dr Moore did her female surgery, he assured me & took away my anxiety. She of course pulled through &y you can barely see any scars, that's wonderful for girls don't like scars!
I believe this is the best clinic for your pets as well as mine.
Great experiences...stop by & visit.

I love Dale Mabry Animal Hospital. I have been going to them for over 20 years and would not take my dog anywhere else. Dr. Leavengood has seen my 2 previous labs and he is now seeing our new lab puppy. Before we got our new puppy, I had some questions and Dr. Leavengood was very helpful in answering them. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful.
There have been some changes at DMAH so I would like to introduce our staff:
Hansel B. Leavengood DVM, Robert J. Moore DVM, Clinton K. Cotten DVM
Our Hospital Administrator:
Clemmie Aamodt MBA
Israel, Jessie, Billie, Alina, Charlie
Jessica, Shannon, Civahn
I have been taking my cat here for over 10 years and the staff are incredible. Shannon is always very polite and professional and I would not trade Doc Leavengood for the world! :) My cat is even likes him and that is saying a lot! Best Ever!! :)
I need to add a sad addendum here. I took ""Bootsie"" aka ""The Poosis"" back to Dale Mabry Hospital and Dr Leavengood but alas she had to be put down for liver/cancer related issues. It sprouted up so quickly that there was nothing we could have done. We only noticed her losing weight the last couple months. We were devastated naturally but the end of life professionalism and treatment we received from Dr Leavengood and EVERYONE on their staff that I encountered were tender, caring, and remarkable. I am grieving wayyyy to heavily to say much more than this. When we have healed enough to get another pet Dale Mabry Animal Hospital will be the FIRST place we take him/her and I advise you all to do so too!
Hansel - thanks mucho. It has been a pretty dark day for us and I could not owe you more for how you handled everything!
HEY ALL!!! I just received a VERY touching sympathy card from Dr Leavengood and the staff. This caring touch will never be forgotten. When it comes to pets it turns an old soldier into a young softie.

We have been taking our dogs to Dr Lynch for about 2 years. We used to take them to Land O Lakes Animal Hospital but found them to be extremely expensive for the smallest of issues. Our oldest dog - Lex - passed away about a month ago. He was a 16 year old miniature poodle who in his later time with us developed diabetes (2004), had a sprained back issue, lsot his vision, had vestibular disease and was in generally poor health. We took him to Dr. Lynch and she has been caring for him the last couple of years. Never have we seen such kind, sincere and genuine affection and concern and just overall caring. She loved him as if he were her own. We'll never forget how she effortlessly took care of everything he went through as if it were her own animal. I know we want this to be the case all the time but to have it occur without bidding was just incredible. It takes us between 45 minutes to an hour to get to the clinic and our other dog Cody is terrified of driving but we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. When Lex died, we sent her a card thanking her for everything and she sent us a very nice card back. We are now about to adopt a new puppy and we'll be taking him to meet her as soon as we get him. We have had nothing but great things with Dr. Lynch and her staff and I always recommend them when anyone asks for a reputable vet.

I dropped my healthy 3-year old cat off at this veterinary clinic, where he had been a patient since he was a kitten. He had a bladder issue, and being the Friday before Memorial Day, I was told he would have to remain at the hospital over the weekend. Dr. Moore was very good about providing updates throughout the weekend, and everything was great...my cat was on the mend and doing fine by the evening I dropped him off. Once Dr. Leavengood took over on Monday afternoon, my cat was dead within hours. The hospital has not been forthcoming about what took place, and all Dr. Leavengood seemed concerned about when he called to tell me the cat was dead was whether or not I wanted to pay for an autopsy. I would avoid this place like the plague! It is pretty clear my cat was not taken care of, and the attitude of Dr. Leavengood is beyond uncaring.

You will not find a more compassionate group of doctors who truly care about your loved ones. Dr Lynch rocks also. She is my favorite and I ask for her everytime. If you are going to another vet, you need to try Dale Mabry Animal Hospital and see for yourself. I will never take my pets anywhere else.

I took my puppy pug here and ALL of the staff were so friendly and nice, my puppy had been sick for a week, and I had already been to two different vets and given two different prescriptions, the doctor came in and did a full evalutation, he was very thorough and explained everything to me. They were very reasonable with pricing, and I had no appointment and didn't have to wait more than 15 minutes. The whole experience was quick, convenient and helpful. I am absolutely satisfied with the service, and have all intentions on returning.

I was lucky enough to meet Dr. Hall and his staff through volunteer work with a local cat rescue. I understand Dr. Hall has a soft spot for cats and he is wonderful! When I took my older dog in for some eye issues, I love how he caters to her; he gets right down on the floor with her and he goes out of his way to engage her in a way she understands. Because of this I think my big dog really likes him too.
We were doing some fostering for the cat rescue and one of the kittens started having seizures. Dr. Hall was completely thorough, not jumping to any conclusions, but testing for the ""most likely"". It would have been easy enough to give me a bottle of pills and tell me to come back after a week, but Dr. Hall did what was right for Logan. He wanted to observe himcarefully in his office until he could get the seizures under control and titrate the initially high dose of meds to get the lowest, most effective dose.
The cause was still not apparent after testing and Dr. Hall did diligent research on different case studies of similar situations. You know, one thing I also want to mention, with the internet, I cant help but using it for my own research. Dr. Hall always listens intently, never interrupts or makes you feel ""stupid"" or silly for trying to be a .c o m Dr.
Long, long, long story short, several months and several dose levels later, Logan is doing well and still loves going to see Dr. Hall. The staff know him by name and are so sweet to him (and us) when we visit. They all seem to truly care about the work they do and the animals they treat.
I highly recommend Dale Mabry Animal Hospital and have nothing but good things to say about them and their help for not only my animals, but those of the cat rescue.

We have been taking our pets there for 12+ years. The doctors and staff have been nothing but professional and courteous. A year and a half ago we had to put Chelsea down and Dr. Levengood had very good pet side manners. A week ago we had to put down Chancellor and Dr. Moore was his doctor. Never would I have expected the compassion Dr. Moore showed us. His compassion was so very heart felt, he really saw and felt our pain. The illnesses which Chelsea and Chancellor had were different but they were handled with as much medical professionalism and concern as I could ever expect.

Like the other reviewer, I also endorse Dr. Lynch. I had a 17 year old cat that was diagnosed with a tumor. Dr. Lynch did not push for life-saving measures, but counseled me on helping her through her last days. She is also very good with my other ""kids."" Dr. Hall is also very nice and is great for exotic patients. He healed our hamster's urinary tract infection! Both like that my daughters want to be vets when they grow up and take the time to explain things to them or show them things while we visit.
I do agree about the reception staff, though. It is a shame that the doctors work so hard but the others are the real ""face"" of the office. I too, was treated rudely because my dog had heartworms. The thing they didn't know was that I had adopted her that way and CHOSE to give her a chance at a loving home despite the PRE-EXISTING condition. She gets her monthly treatment but the organism has an 18-month lifespan. Hope I don't get another tongue-lashing in that time!! She also has a bad leg that I did not cause, but I do get raised eyebrows. The office staff needs to realize that the people who are bringing their pets to the vet are NOT the neglecters!!!

I found the doctors here to be very compassionate and caring. I had never been there before and I took my cat in because she was not eating nor acting like herself. Unfortunately, she had to be euthanized because she had renal failure (she was 13 years old). I was given as much time as I needed to say good-bye to her, and was told of several options available to deal with the situation. Two days later I received a beautiful card in the mail from them about the ""Rainbow Bridge"" for animals and owners to be reunited in the future. I thought this was exceptional since they had never seen me before. I dealt with Dr. Chad Hall at that time, and have since seen Dr. Leavengood with my other cat. Both were very professional and compassionate. I will go there from now on.

Before meeting Dr. Lynch, I had a bad taste in my mouth for DMAH. I am not a fan of Dr. Leavengood who I believe is the owner. However, many people come in and request him specifically, so it is just a personal preference. DMAH is a no-appointment, first-come, first-served facility with the exception of surgeries. If you want to be the first seen, you have to arrive at 7:30am, but doctors do not begin appts. until 8am. Waiting room is small, and office staff is hit-or-miss on their demeanor. I find they're generally very nice in person, but not so much on the phone.
I will see Dr. Christine Lynch until I move out of Tampa. She is quiet and reserved, but she is also kind and very sweet with my 2 dogs and cat. She is not interested in overcharging for unnecessary procedures. I had left DMAH and began going to veterinary medical specialists. They gave me a $850 estimate for a simple procedure, which is when I gave DMAH another try. This was my first time seeing Dr. Lynch. She suggested only the absolute necessary parts of the previously quoted procedure, took my dog in for the procedure and all day monitoring, and only charged me for the $40 local anesthesia. That type of caring and inexpensive service is unheard of!
I also recommend Dr. Robert Moore, who is my alternate vet. He is the newest member of the staff, but he knows his stuff, is accessible, and also fair and friendly.
I've never seen Dr. Hall.

Dr. Lynch, one of the veterinarians employed here is very warm and competent. One of our beagles had cancer removed last year. In the six or so times we have been there, she has always been professional.
However, the office staff leaves much to be desired. They are consistently rude. If Dr. Lynch was not one of the vets here, I would not take our animals there any more. Everyone has a bad day now and then, but this staff acts as though they hate their jobs. Not one of them smiles very often. The only reason I started coming here was my sister's recommendation. Calling on the phone to schedule something is difficult at best if you are not sure what you want done for your pet. They are very impatient ( I work at a very busy medical practice myself and know that at times things get harried, but we ALWAYS smile ). None of them come out to greet your pet like other practices do. Again if Dr Lynch ever left, I would switch.

The staff is always very caing too.And I would like to welcome .DR Robert Moore, he is a South Tampa boy and is now with the group.
Thanks to all for always being so nice to Micah.

After a very bad experience at the Vet I have used for years I was very upset. Before the dog was checked at all I was given an estimate of the charges. Without really even looking at my little 11- year old pooch I was told the estimate would be $460.00 provided she didn't move during the x-ray. That would be an extra fee. I started to leave my dog but I was concerned because the Vet hadn't even really examined her. I had signed for treatment but then decided to leave. My niece was with me and she suggested her Vet. We immediately went to that office. Dr. Hall's office was breath of good care for a little old friend of mine. When they called us we saw Dr. Leathergood. I was very appreciative of his really excellent examination. Dr. Leathergood checked her heart, lungs, stomach, ears, legs, and generally got to familiarize himself with her and her condition. He then took her temperature and recommended some lab work to start. After about ten minutes or so he told me that lab work didn't show anything out of line. He gave her an IV a shot and some pills for me to dispense at home. That was last Thursday and she was back to her old self by Friday afternoon. What had started out as a very difficult situation ended up with a very happy satisfying end. From the office staff to Dr. Leathergood and his assistant I was very impressed with the whole visit. I will continue to use this Vet and would highly recommend them.
