The Legacy of Caring Continues Today

After moving to Lakeland and partnering with Dr. Marks, Dr. Jennifer Nash purchased Turkey Creek Animal Hospital in 2011. She fell in love with the Plant City community, her patients, and her clients.

Driven by a desire to help the families and pets in the area, she expanded the practice by offering new services like acupuncture, laser, advanced dentistry, and advanced diagnostics like ultrasound and digital x-ray with upgraded point-of-care testing.

Over the years, the Turkey Creek family grew from two DVMs to four. Our doctors each have their own unique passion and area of interest, all working together so our patients benefit from having a team of medical professionals managing their care.

The foundation of our business is dedication to our patients, our clients, and to each other. We’ve been proudly caring for the pets of Plant City and Hillsborough County in Florida for nearly 30 years, and we are honored to be part of the community we serve. We understand our responsibility to give back to that community through education, service, and charity, along with providing exceptional service to our patients and clients.

In a world of corporate veterinary practices, we remain a privately owned and operated business led by Dr. Nash, working side by side with a team of animal lovers who are dedicated to the health and well-being of the companion animals and families we serve.
