OCALA, Fla., June 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Town & Country Animal Hospital in Ocala, Florida is celebrating the veterinary practice's 18th anniversary. Ocala veterinarian Dr. Kelly Culbertson credits the hospital's success over the last 18 years to its commitment to provide "high tech medicine with a tender touch." By combining the latest technology with compassionate veterinary care, Dr. Culbertson says that Town & Country Animal Hospital sets itself apart from other veterinary clinics. In addition to standard wellness care services such as check-ups and vaccinations, the animal hospital also provides advanced veterinary care including cardiology, ophthalmology, neurology, dermatology, gastroenterology, oncology and endocrinology.

Town & Country Animal Hospital is celebrating its 18th anniversary this July. The practice hospital first opened in Quail Meadows Commons in 1997. In 2003, the hospital expanded to its current location across the street from Quail Meadows on US Highway 27.

Led by veterinarian and practice owner Dr. Kelly Culbertson, Town & Country's care philosophy emphasizes the use of the latest technology with a compassionate, loving touch.

"Our Ocala animal hospital was one of the first in Florida to provide cutting-edge surgical care such as TPLO surgery," said Dr. Culbertson. "From our state-of-the-art surgical suite to high tech diagnostic equipment, we are proud to be leaders in veterinary care. At the same time, we know that a gentle, compassionate touch can go a long way to helping our pet patients feel safe, comfortable and supported during an appointment. We're proud to offer the best of both worlds for our pets and their owners." We also pride ourselves in providing outstanding client service to our clients. It is a big priority for us.
