Every pet is special to us at University Animal Clinic. We also know exotic pets are unique and therefore require special care. Our highly qualified exotic veterinarians near you serve the needs of exotic pets in University Park, Bradenton, Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch. Whether a bird has a crop infection, a snake or other reptile is not eating or has a lack of appetite, or rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets or other rodents suffer from respiratory infections, we are here to serve the needs of our all exotic pets and their owners. In addition to treating exotic pet ailments, we offer tips and guidance on the proper diet, vitamins, lighting and housing for these unique creatures that visit our exotic pet clinic in Bradenton.
Although all reptiles share the similar traits of being cold-blooded and covered in scales, they do not follow a one-size fits all outline for proper care. Some snakes and other reptiles need a hot, dry environment while other snakes and reptiles require a humid and mossy enclosure. They also vary in requirements for lighting, diet, vitamins and housing.Learn More About Exotic Pet Care
The very best of care, the entire staff always gives their all and truly cares about both patient and parents! You won’t find a better clinic in Sarasota.
It is very difficult to find an avian vet who is kind while not sugar coating what can be bad news. I had no idea conures get cataracts as they get older, helped me understand my bird’s actions. The Dr. is wonderful!

You can really tell how much the love animals . Do your pets the biggest favor and take them to this vet clinic .
Incredibly grateful to the staff of University Animal Clinic. We have been a customer for over 20 years. They were able to take care of our dog Duke today for an unscheduled appointment for UTI. Couldn’t imagine going to anybody else.
Awesome reptile vet! I thought there was a problem with my bearded dragon so I made an app to bring him in. Dr. Sara was knowledgeable, professional, and down to earth. UAC is clean and doesn’t smell like urine whatsoever. I love coming here and will continue to bring my pets here. I highly recommend this vet. A+ service. Thanks!!!
Dr Sam and staff are friendly, knowledgeable and truly care about your pets health and happiness! We wouldn’t trust our babies with any one else.
I took my galah Rosie for a general physical. The staff and vet took the time to show me (as a new bird owner) how to clip nails and wings and what to look for as far as outward signs of her health. Can’t say enough good things about this clinic and would recommend them without any hesitation!
Thank you to Doctor Simonson, Casey, Dr. Sam and the rest of the team for taking care of Wrangler! You all treated him like a pet of your own and made me feel so comfortable leaving him with you to watch over after such a scary incident. Everyone at your office is so knowledgeable and caring. Wrangler is feeling so much better and back to normal. Thank you for all your help, you have an amazing team.

My dogs, Max and Leo, always have a very positive experience at UAC. The staff is friendly and professional. The office is efficient and clean. I appreciate the ability to check on the dogs’ vaccinations, etc., on the pet portal. Great vet practice.
