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.
Justen is a veterinary technician originally from Buffalo, NY. After discharging from the army he decided going to school for teching and moved to FL. This job is a passion for him to give back to the animals that saved his life. Justen is a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan. If the Bills are playing he will not be in the office!
Originally from Philadelphia, Lindsay decided to move down south for some sun and fun, and to escape the nasty winters of the Northeast. Lindsay has been working in the veterinary field for over 20 years, and loves anything to do with animal care. In her free time she loves to spend time with her 3 cats, Pesci, Vinny, and Bocci. She also loves cooking, baking, being at the beach or pool, or just enjoying some Netflix binging.
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!
