What to Expect

Your first visit to St. Francis  Animal Hospital establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you and your pet. During this visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, such as your pet’s medical history, this will help us develop an immunization program that fits your pet’s individual lifestyle while also giving you time to get to know us.  This initial visit also allows you the opportunity to get to know our staff and the veterinarians.


Appointment Policy

 We will do our best to honor your appointment time; however, if there is a patient involved in an emergency situation, we must address the needs of that patient first.


If you are dropping off your pet for the day for medical care or a surgical procedure, we ask that you arrive no later than 8:30 am, allowing  the staff and veterinarians to assess your pet’s needs and begin medical care/treatment more quickly.

Emergency Care




We provide emergency veterinary care during normal business hours and work with local emergency clinics for all after hour needs.  For more information on emergency care, please visit our emergencies page .  There is now an emergency veterinarian in Vero Beach, as well as the centers in Fort Pierce and Melbourne.
