Welcome to Boyette Animal Hospital

Your Veterinarian in Riverview, FL
Call us at 813-671-3400

On June 15th, we were able to begin the gradual return to business as usual. The following is a overview of the changes:

For most appointments with our veterinarians, we are allowing one pet parent per appointment to come into the building at this time. Small children may come with you. We will still be using the numbered parking spaces so please call 671-3400 when you arrive. We will notify you by phone to let you know when you may enter the building. If you need help getting multiple pets inside for the appointment, we are happy to assist you.

If you prefer to remain in your car during the appointment for safety or convenience, we are happy to continue serving your needs via curbside service.

We do ask that you wear a face mask inside the building if you are not completely vaccinated. The same applies to our doctors and staff.

We do plan to eventually remove all restrictions but for now, please understand that the exam rooms are relatively small, confined spaces with prolonged times of face to face contact. This is a very different situation than a restaurant or a big box store. And while many of our team members are vaccinated, a significant number are not, and until that percentage increases we will be taking some precautions to ensure we do not have a hospital wide epidemic. 

Medication and food pick-ups will still be done at our drive through window. If the drive through line is too long, please feel free to pull into a numbered space and give us a call. We will be happy to deliver what you need to your vehicle.

Boarding and grooming drop-offs and pick-ups will continue to be done curbside for now, due to the very small size of that reception area.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the re-opening process.

The Doctors and Staff of Boyette Animal Hospital

Traffic Safety:
There have been a couple of serious car accidents near our entrance on Boyette Rd. The ridiculous speeds that people drive on that stretch of Boyette, combined with the very annoying U-turn diversion that drivers must now take to get to the Post Office, have made our entrance intersection pretty scary. When you are leaving our office and must make a left turn onto Boyette, please consider turning right and making a U-turn just 100 yards down the road. Also, don’t forget there is a back exit from our office that will get you to Hwy 301 northbound a little more safely.

Boarding Upgrade!:
We have moved our boarding kennel operations to a temporary facility at the southwest corner of the office park, right by Tom Rd, about 200 yards from the current kennel. We are doing this so that we can demolish the old kennel building and construct a newer, much more updated boarding facility. But don’t let the phrase “temporary facility” turn you off. Even our temporary facility (Petside Manor) is an extreme upgrade from our current boarding kennel, with brand new, beautiful and more comfortable accommodations for your pets. We are also taking advantage of the shade from the big oaks in the play yard. For now, most grooming appointments will still be handled at the main clinic. You can still reach all our facilities via the 671-3400 number.

Looking for a new career?
We have trained hundreds of people to care for animals over the years. And, to keep up with our demand, we are often looking for new, hard working employees who are as passionate as we are about animal care. We are especially interested in people with previous experience in service and hospitality industries. Keep in mind that this is a very “active” profession…everyone in the hospital is in constant motion! To learn more about job opportunities with us, contact Elizabeth at 671-3400.
