Newsweek lists AMI as one of the 25 most popular beach towns in America." In the past few years Siesta Key (18 miles to the SW) and Clearwater Beach 46 miles to the NW) have each been named as America's best beach by Dr. Beach. Bradenton sits right between the two best beaches! Instead of being a tourist, you could live here with enough spare time to go wiggle your toes in the sand and play in the water to your heart's content.

We believe in making pets as comfortable as possible while in our care. Pets should not be afraid to come here, so we became a certified "Cat Friendly Practice." We have separate cat and dog waiting areas, separate exam rooms, separate wards for dogs and cats and separate dental and surgery suites! We also welcome small mammals, birds and exotic pets. We want to be the best and for that we need the best staff. If you are an exceptional, energetic, compassionate, team-oriented small animal veterinarian with excellent communication skills, please come and see if you and our medical team are an excellent fit. If you are a really good veterinarian, we know you have many choices. The big corporations might appear to have some advantages in what they can offer you, but we are proud to offer competitive compensation (Salary plus production bonus), VIN and a stipend for continuing education, dues and licenses. We have a retirement plan, medical insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, life insurance, and Health Savings Account. And we are older than any of the big nationals. We think absorption into a big corporation changes the focus -after all, the primary job of a corporation is to make a profit for the shareholder. For 75 years we have kept our focus on our mission to provide top notch affordable medical care and service to the pets and pet owners of the Suncoast of Florida. We think our team is building something very special here. Our tight-knit community is bonded by deep mutual respect and pride in our work.
