Meet Our Team


Ilonka Ambros


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.

Dr. Sarver moved from the Chicagoland area to SW Florida in 2016. While she loves critical care and emergency medicine, she also has a strong interest in internal medicine and client education. Dr. Sarver completed her Undergrad studies at University of Wisconsin – Whitewater and then went onto earn her doctorate at Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. When not at the clinic, she loves to stay active! You can find her out in nature, traveling, running, volunteering, or playing with her White Shepherd mix Zoe.

Ziggy and Mikey

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!
