Meet Our Team


Dr. Ilonka Ambros, DVM

Dr. Ambros graduated Summa Cum Laude from Colorado State University in 2006, and worked as a general practitioner at a day practice in north Sarasota for 3 years.  She then worked as an associate at a local emergency hospital for 2 years.  Most recently, she returned to day practice as a relief veterinarian, helping out at many different clinics from Bradenton to Port Charlotte.  While she enjoyed getting to be part of a day practice again for a while, she is excited to be back in the emergency field, where her passion truly lies.

Resident Clinic Cats

Ziggy and Mikey came to us through Gulf Shore Animal League. Both Ziggy and Mikey had spent time in the clinic being treated for different illnesses and when it was time to leave no one wanted to see them go! So they became our clinic cats and they show their appreciation by helping save the lives of other cats by being blood donors. When not donating blood you can usually find them cuddled together on their cat tree or causing mischief somewhere in the clinic!
