We understand your pets are your family. 

That is why we treat them as if they were our own.

We pride ourselves in quality care, a clean and inviting facility and a warm and friendly staff. So that we may provide your pet with the very best in care, our office works by appointment.

We provide care and service in small animals, avian, exotic medicine, surgeries, dentistry, radiology, ultrasounds, endoscopy, laboratory services, bathing, supplies, and drop off service.

Please note: The I-75 northbound off-ramp to SR 70 (Exit 217) has been shifted about 1-mile to the south. The new exit ramp begins immediately north of Linger Lodge Road overpass. Signs are present to inform motorists, but please be aware that this changes the route to our clinic!

Meet the Doctors


Doctor Ryan Fox

Ryan Fox, DVM graduated from Auburn University in 1998. He is originally from Kentucky, attended Western Kentucky University as an undergraduate and moved to Florida during his veterinary school internship. He began working at River Landings Animal Clinic in late 1998 and became the owner in 2001. Dr. Fox's practice interest is mainly as a canine and feline general practitioner and includes small animal medicine, wellness care and surgery. 


Doctor Mike Bonda

Michael Bonda, DVM graduated from Cornell University in 1988. Originally from Orchard Park, NY where he was employed at the largest 24 hour referral and critical care veterinary medical center in the area, Dr. Bonda moved to Florida in 1998. He has been trained in small animal medicine, soft tissue surgery, abdominal and cardiac ultrasound and endoscopy as well as exotic and avian medicine and surgery. He was board certified in avian medicine by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in 1995 as the care of parrots became a strong interest. In addition to employment at River Landings Animal Clinic, locally,  Dr. Bonda provides in-part volunteer services for several local animal rescue facilities including Birds of Paradise, Florida West Coast Avian Society, Last Chance Cat Sanctuary, Nate's Honor Animal Rescue, as well as veterinary services for Jungle Gardens and several local Pet Supermarkets.



When your pet boards at River Landings Animal Clinic, it is more than a stay in a kennel. We also do activities such as paw painting, dress up, and story time.

Please make reservations ahead of time to claim your pet's spot.
