Every patient and client is different and we will strive to treat our last appointment as if its our first; we will strive to accommodate, within reason, each unique circumstance and we will always offer treatment options and solutions.
Gulf Coast Veterinary Center
was born out of a desire to offer top notch services to animals that were “rescued” by various organizations at a reasonable cost. There was no such clinic in existence in the Spring Hill area at the time of our conception. The name “Gulf Coast” was decided on by the staff as we wanted to encompass not only Spring Hill and the surrounding areas, but the entire gulf coast from as far north as Gainesville and as far south as Sarasota. We currently service rescue animals and organizations from Spring Hill, Brooksville, Ocala, Tampa, and St Petersburg. Our staff has been working together for years already and are all very compassionate animal caregivers who have embraced the various changes with enthusiasm and are looking forward to helping you with your pets in the near future.
Advanced planning is critical… Identify a safe place to take your pets in an emergency.

Hi there! I’m Leslie, the office manager in the loving family of Gulf Coast Veterinary Center. My love for animals began at a young age. I moved to Florida from Ohio in 2006 and have been caring for pets every day since. Through the years, I have developed the knowledge to speak for the pets because they cannot speak for themselves. My goal is to see that every companion receives the best care they deserve. I am so fortunate to do what I’ve always wanted to do. Animals are my love and passion. They are our family.
I have worked in the veterinary field for over 15 years. I currently have 3 cats Spyder (15), Muddi (14) and Albi (1y). I moved back to Florida from Ohio in 2015 to start at Gulf Coast Vet Center and have worked here ever since!
