★★★★★ Overall great experience visiting Edge Animal Hospital for my cat’s annual visit! Dr. Mosher was thorough in her exam and Laine was also wonderful to work with taking vitals and routine intake. Everyone here is so friendly and happy to help.Stephanie CStephanie C ★★★★★ BEST 👏🏼 ANIMAL 👏🏼 HOSPITAL 👏🏼 EVER!!!!!!!I was sooooo discouraged after taking Bodhi to my regular vet and having her turned back to me just minutes later almost with anger telling me they wouldn't touch her unless she came in on Trazadone. They made my sweet girl seem like a monster 😭She is a very anxious dog. Construction, fireworks, loud cars - you name it she's terrified of it. So I was really nervous to take her to a new vet but trusted the recommendation of my amazing friend Sara Martzahl to go to the "fear-free" The Edge Animal HospitalAnd oh my God when I tell you they respected her boundaries I couldn't mean it more!!!!! They prioritized the comfort and trust of Bodhi FAR before the administration of the treatment plan. They spent ample time making her feel comfortable and I never felt rushed. She received shots and a physical exam. I was hands on the entire time as they made detailed notes of when her boundaries were pushed, what she liked etc. I have NEVER EVER seen a vet care sooo much for my dog like it's their own. Bodhi even gave us all a huge smile after her last shot like she was even proud of herself! It put me in grateful tears. Thank you thank you thank you to Dr. Schimmel and staff!If you have an anxious dog and are looking for a vet, you MUST try them out!!!!Alyssa D.Alyssa D. ★★★★★ I recently visited Edge Animal Hospital with my pet and had an exceptional experience. Dr. Schimmel provided outstanding care and demonstrated a high level of expertise and compassion.

Thanks Edge!!!David Nieves J.David Nieves J. ★★★★★ I have been taking my dog and cats to Edge for several years now. The vets and vet techs are all incredibly caring, knowledgeable, and professional.

She is knowledgable, investigative, and caring and over the past 10 years has always taken time to explain whatever we needed to understand. It is so obvious that she truly cares about animals and has never made us feel like we need unnecessary testing, in fact quite the opposite. Recently Jake had a severe case of colitis and Dr. Johnson’s recommendations and after hours follow up were paramount in helping him to recover. We can’t thank her enough for all she has helped us with over the years including our Westie’s severe dermatitis. Edge has a friendly staff and the times I have been there the office is clean and we didn’t have to wait long. We highly recommend Edge Animal Hospital!Terri H.Terri H. ★★★★★ Took my recently adopted bulldog here with an unknown health history. Dr. Schimmel was very thorough in establishing a base line for the dogs care, prescribed a very effective medication for the dogs eye and joint problems and brought life back to my pet. Very welcoming environment, very knowledgeable and energetic. Can’t say enough good things about this place.Greg H.Greg H. ★★★★★ Took our small dogs to Edge Animal Hospital primarily because Dr. Rhonda Johnson is on staff there. We have experienced her passion and knowledgeable care previously at her former business. She is amazing and the fact that she has associated herself with Edge AH speaks volumes for them. We have been there twice and the staff’s level of care, compassion, and efficiency is exemplary! We have to travel about 50 miles from our home to utilize this facility, but when it comes to Max and Murphy, they are worth it! I highly recommend this to you for your animal’s care.Paul H.Paul H. ★★★★★ EDGE is a wonderful animal hospital! I shadowed Dr. Johnson during the summer and I learned so much about veterinary medicine.

As a former volunteer, I highly recommend you bring your pet to EDGE!Alexandra Q.Alexandra Q. ★★★★★ Saw Dr Johnson here. Live in East Tampa but went here specifically for her. So glad we did!

Dr. Johnson has years of experience and truly has the animals best interest at heart ❤️R B.R B. ★★★★★ Dr. Johnson has been our vet for over 20 years. We follow her wherever she is practicing! Her knowledge, skills and compassion are unsurpassed! We really love Edge Animal Hospital. It is a smaller practice so we never have to wait. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. You can tell that your pet is their primary concern. I drive there from Tampa, but it is so easy as it is conveniently located just off the expressway. We love Edge!Kari D.Kari D. ★★★★★ First time visiting Edge with my cat who is deathly afraid of vet’s offices. Staff were gentle and kind and were attuned to Chloe’s mood.

Thank you so much!Elysium E.Elysium E. ★★★★★ Dr. Buso and Dr. Volkers are GREAT!Solar S.Solar S. ★★★★★ I would like to thank everybody at the Edge Animal Hospital, from the people at the front door to the people at the back door for saving my dogs life! My sweet Storm age 13 was brought in with a fever, infection, pneumonia, and a descended esophagus. I could tell the doctors did not think she was going to make it. By the grace of God, lots of prayers and amazing staff… my sweetheart Storm has not only recovered, but is back to being an awesome sweet girl. I love all of you there so much for saving my dogs life!Love DavidDavid A.David A. ★★★★★ Wow! This was such different vet experience. As others have said, I was able to get my kitty seen the day I called in. That was a huge relief as he was having a severe allergic reaction. My cat has had terrible allergies for 3 years but this was extra bad. I had taken him to two other area vets who shrugged us off and offered steroids as the only treatment. Dr. Schimmel took the time to educate me about allergies and started us on an actual treatment path to recovery. One month after the visit my cat was in better health than he has ever been. His hives were gone, his fur was growing back, no more itching and barely any mucous.It is honestly like a MIRACLE, but all it really took was a COMPETENT vet!! Not only is Dr. Schimmel able to offer competent and thorough care, she and the entire staff were incredibly kind to me and my animal, from start to finish. In addition, the follow up from Dr. Schimmel and her team is unlike any other care I have experienced. They call, email and are super responsive to make sure that you and your pet are doing okay. Do yourself and your animal a favor and go to Edge Animal Hospital. It is worth every penny.Sarah G.Sarah G. ★★★★★ I had the luxury of touring the facility today and was blown away. The staff is amazing, it’s much larger inside than it appears, the staff was beyond knowledgeable and helpful. I just can’t believe how clean the place was. They really do care about you and your loved ones. I highly recommend to anyone with a fury friend they truly care about.Harry C.Harry C. ★★★★★ Really great service! I’ve been taking my dog since she was a pup!Nabil R.Nabil R. ★★★★★ Wonderful friendly staff. My dog had a great experience. Convenient location if you live downtownWhitney W.Whitney W. ★★★★★ I highly recommend Edge Animal Hospital, the veterinarians, vet techs and staff are all extremely knowledgeable and very caring. We always get excellent service and the vet does follow up calls if your pet is sick!Susan D.Susan D. ★★★★★ My cat loved it and was comfortable getting his nails trimmedJeanne B.Jeanne B. ★★★★★ We had a wonderful first visit to Edge! All staff from reception, vet techs (shout out to Chris!), and Dr. Volkers were so kind and truly care about the animals in their care. Dr. Volkers asked if we had questions for her several times during our visit which not many doctors do at all. Our golden retriever puppy had the most wonderful time there and everyone made him feel so special and welcomed. He loves going to the vet!Javed M.Javed M. ★★★★★ I had recently adopted my kitty Jasper, and he seemed to have some urinary issues. Dr. Volkers, the nurses, and the receptionists did everything in their power to love Jasper and give him the highest quality care possible. He unfortunately passed away shortly after surgery, but edge animal hospital sent me flowers and a beautiful card signed by all the staff. This thoughtful touch brought my roommate and I to tears and we realized how much edge animal hospital truly cares about the pets in their care. It took me a while to write this review , but I wanted to share my appreciation for the quality of care we received here. I’m absolutely bringing my new kitty here as I fully trust edge with my pets. Highly recommend them to any pet owners looking for a new vet.Sara S.Sara S. ★★★★★ I’ve never had such a caring veterinary experience with my cat before. They do everything to make sure he’s as comfortable as possible during his visit.Haley H.Haley H. ★★★★★ We just moved to St Pete and took our Bernese Mountain Dog to Edge Animal Hospital for a cyst on his back. They were able to book us same day and it was by far the best experience we’ve had at a vet! Dr. Johnson was so sweet and helpful. And her assistant was also great! They helped address the issue and then also provided a lot of good advice since our dog is getting older. Overall it was just a very pleasant experience and very affordable in comparison to other vets in Tampa / St Pete area.Alexandra F.Alexandra F. ★★★★★ I took my dog to Edge Animal Hospital for the first time today and had a very positive experience. The staff was so friendly and seemed to really care about what they do. I was in and out in less than an hour and was provided the antibiotics I needed for my pup on site. The staff seemed to really enjoy working with animals and addressed any questions or concerns I had in a friendly and professional manor. They were easy to locate and have their own parking lot which is convenient since they are basically located downtown. I will definitely be back.Amber J.Amber J. ★★★★★ Great service. Great employees.

I've been trying to find a compassionate, knowledgeable vet for several years, since move to St. Pete and so glad I found the Edge! One visit and I had a diagnosis for my collie vs. multiple other docs that just said old age and drugs. Dr. Volkers provided details of her disease and options to aid my sweet baby. Plus the Edges's online pharmacy provides a great rate on her meds (almost half other vets). Also, the staff I've had interactions with--Jessica and Chris--were kind and professional as well.

Sadly, I had to put him down due to health issues recently. You learn a lot about a vet by the way they handle you in difficult times like this and I have to say that they have the most loving staff imaginable. So kind, so caring, so respectful. They even sent flowers and a card that included a personal hand written note from every member of the staff. The way they love the animals they care for is evident and I learned that the way the care for their owners is equally loving.
