Sandpiper Animal Hospital, LLC welcomes you to our website - Thank you for finding us online!




Having been born and raised in Stuart and living next door to the Humane Society for years, I found that one of my life's main interests was the caring for animals.  

After school and on weekends, I would volunteer at the Animal Shelter cleaning, feeding and finding adoptive homes for the rescue pets there.  Later in life, I was given the opportunity to attend Veterinary School and graduated from Purdue University in 1986.

In 1987 I founded Morningside Animal Hospital in Port St. Lucie and continued to practice there until 2000.  At that time, I leased the Hospital to another Veterinarian and continued to practice Veterinary Medicine running Animal Hospitals for those Veterinarians that were on vacation, etc.

In August 2011, I received my Animal Hospital back off of lease, and renamed it Sandpiper Animal Hospital.  After extensive renovations we re-opened in December, 2011, specializing in Companion Animal Care.

At Sandpiper Animal Hospital, we treat your pets as if they were our own.  I look forward to taking care of your pets health needs and meeting you!

Again, thanks for visiting our website.
