Welcome news to island pet owners! Full service veterinary care is now available directly on Sanibel.
Beachside Animal Clinic is a full service animal clinic offering medicine, surgery, dental care, radiology, laboratory, flea and tick control, and weight control directly in our new, ground floor, Sanibel facility. Surgery, x-ray, and emergency services are now available without driving to the mainland. In addition, these services are provided at a cost that is similar, or in many cases, less than those found on the mainland. We do not charge additional filing fees for new patients. Please call our friendly staff for an appointment.

Beachside Animal Clinic will take early evening emergencies as well as less urgent medical, surgical, and dental issues. Dr. Mathusa is experienced in all types of conditions and treatments. Beyond first rate pet care, we make our clinic comfortable, kid-friendly, and a very calm environment.
We have a number of resources for you to learn how to take better care of your pets. Browse the website and look at our articles and pet videos. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention. If you have a question, please call us at 239-579-0804. Our Sanibel office is very easy to get to at 1640-3 Periwinkle Way, in the Lime Tree Center, across from Bank of the Islands. You can find directions on our 'Contact Us' page.
