South Tampa Veterinary Care is proud to serve the Tampa, FL area for everything pet-related. Our veterinary clinic and animal hospital is run by Dr. Denise Ginex, who is a licensed, experienced Tampa veterinarian.

South Tampa Veterinary Care (STVC), established in January 2009, is a small animal veterinary clinic providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care for dogs and cats. We also provide basic and emergency care for pocket pets, ferrets, snakes and birds.  STVC is also qualified to provide health certificates for sale of puppies and kittens, domestic and international travel.

We provide diagnostic procedures through basic ultrasound, in-house testing and off site national veterinary laboratories. We also work closely with the local referral facilities: Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialists, Blue Pearl Veterinary Specialists, Veterinary Surgical Services, Veterinary Internal Medical Diagnostics and North Tampa Veterinary Specialists when specific diagnostic or surgical procedures are required. We also can facilitate referral to veterinarians who are certified in veterinary acupuncture and chiropractic.

Our facility includes a pharmacy, dedicated surgery suite, digital general X-ray and digital dental X-ray capabilities, a supervised day time hospitalization area, an isolation ward and a feline boarding ward.

At South Tampa Veterinary Care, we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when they aren't feeling well, but also by preventative care to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
