Shaffer Animal Hospital opened in August of 1999 in Oviedo, Florida. The owners of the practice, Drs. Kendra and Jeff Shaffer, began this practice after starting East Orange Animal Hospital in 1985. East Orange was sold to their associates at that practice in January of 2001. Since opening the practice, we have been blessed to serve the Oviedo area and have grown to fit our community’s need for a state-of-the-art small animal hospital, while offering grooming, training, and boarding. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and your beloved companions!
Shaffer Animal Hospital’s mission is to provide the best possible care and utmost compassion for our clients and their companion pets. It is also a priority of our hospital to exemplify the highest level of professional conduct in providing for our clients and their pets.
Dr. Jeff Shaffer has had the pleasure of caring for the veterinary needs of your family’s four-legged members for 35 years. During those years he has come to know many of you closely. He has seen your children grow, welcomed new puppies and kittens and grieved with you as those same dogs and cats became seniors and crossed the rainbow bridge. Clients all over Central Florida have also trusted Dr. Jeff to care for their ferrets, rabbits and other pocket pets.
It is with mixed emotions that we announce his retirement from practicing veterinary medicine. Dr Jeff and Dr Kendra will continue to own Shaffer Animal Hospital, but Dr. Jeff will no longer be seeing patients nor be available to consult with clients. We, the staff, thank him for all his years of service, for his example of compassionate and thorough medicine, and for being an outstanding teacher. He leaves the practice in good hands with the associate veterinarians who will continue to help you with your pets needs.
