Our Hospital

In 1959 Dr. Conrad Williams opened Beaches Animal Clinic and was joined 3 years later by Dr. Ted Puffinburger. For 14 years, it was the only clinic at the beach! In 1984, Dr. William Daniel joined the practice. Following the retirement of Dr. Williams, Dr. Daniel bought the clinic and has since been joined by Dr. Nancy Ramirez and Dr. Jeff Cole. Our goal is, and always has been, to provide the best quality care for your pet. In 2000 and 2001, Jacksonville Magazine did a city wide poll of “Favorites,” and Beaches Animal Clinic was selected as “Favorite Veterinarian” both years. In 2009 we were voted “Favorite Veterinarian” by The Beaches Leader. We are very proud of that and believe it reflects in our motto: “We treat your pets as if they were our own.” Please call us for an appointment to care for your 4 legged family members!
