★★★★★ By far the best care ever. A very loving, kind and compassionate staff. We have a senior that has needed many different types of service. From annual check ups to dentistry and brief emergency services. Thanks for all you do.Minnie D.Minnie D. ★★★★★ Superior animal hospital. Highly recommend. Everyone treats your pet(s) with love & compassion. I wish Dr. Boyd was my doctor! I can't say enough about how amazing, special & knowledgeable she is. She truly cares about your fur baby. 😻Kim D.Kim D. ★★★★★ We needed a new vet closer to home and we hit the jackpot here! Dr. England is amazing and Heather the vet tech was wonderful. It was chaos with all 3 dogs but they handled it like pros. So happy we have a new vet….10/10 recommend!Barbara K.Barbara K. ★★★★★ Friendly, caring and knowledgeable staff.Steve D.Steve D. ★★★★★ Every time I go the staff and doctors are friendly and caring. I always feel like my cat is in good hands.Catherine B.Catherine B. ★★★★★ Great Service! Medical staff and other personnel are caring and respectful.Nancy P.Nancy P. ★★★★★ Dr Ashley Boyd has taken great care of my dogs for 14 years and when she was in the process of opening Fox Creek she and Hannah made house calls to us. Dr Boyd rescued my dog Iris who was lost and running beside highway 40 in very bad shape. Heartworms, fleas, ticks, pregnant and malnourished. Fox Creek nursed Itis back to health so that I adopted a healthy wonderful girl. This veterinary hospital feels like a family to me and Iris as they have to all my dogs. They get excited to see us when we come in.I had some serious surgery in 2021 and was completely confident that Iris would be lovingly cared for at Fox Creek as I recovered.I cannot say enough to reflect my appreciation for Dr Boyd and her staff. They are the best!susan B.susan B. ★★★★★ Wonderfully compassionate, engaged, professionals is how I define my experience with the folks at Fox Creek Animal Hospital. The office smells great, is clean, bright, and modern with a flair of country style. The folks at the front desk or check-in area expressed sincere interest in what I needed, took some time with me explaining the process there, and in no time I was greeted by Emory, who kindly offered assistance with my kitty carriers, as I use a cane. Emory had some sort of magical kitty vibe that seemed to resonate with my orange kitty boys Samuel and Finnegan; the calm, kind, and patient demeanor won us all over. It was my first visit there and my first meeting with Dr. Eric Henze, who immediately put me at ease with his effervescent personality. He was engaged completely with my boys, yet able to clearly explain what he was checking for, and why, and what the outcome should be. Complete compassionate professional! My orange kitty boys, which are not small, melted like butter under his careful care; it was actually quite amazing. I am very grateful, and I will be continuing to receive care for my boys here at Fox Creek Animal Hospital.DJouji7DJouji7 ★★★★★ We recently moved to Ocala and needed to find a Vet. Our rescue dog Cooper is very excitable and most people are afraid of him. He is 86lbs and looks a bit intimidating. We have a really hard time bringing him into a vets office, most patrons clutch their dogs when we walk in. This was our third visit to a new Vet in the year since we moved here. The Vet (Corie) sat on the floor with him to treat his ear infections and didn't immediatley grab a muzzle to put on him.....finally Cooper felt loved and safe at the Vet! The staff was so kind and wonderful. Fox Creek treated us so kindly and Cooper felt really loved there. Cooper will be going to Fox Creek from now on!Regina J.Regina J. ★★★★★ This is a great pet hospital. The vets are caring and competent. The staff is very friendly. Registration and checkout were a breeze. I highly recommend.Nancy WNancy W ★★★★★ Gracie is in the office so often the Vets, assistants, techs and office personal know her by site.

They are very compassionate. From coming to you car to help bring in your fur baby(ies) as well as putting them in your car. The staff at the front desk - what can I say...I think they have the best crew. The Doctors are great. The whole staff not only takes care of your fur baby(ies) but the owners as well. They know the owner is very important to their fur baby(ies).Dr Boyd has taken care of all of our pets, and there have been many. When we had to make the difficult decision - she was there every step of the way. My 9 year old granddaughter could attest to that as she had to put both her kitties down months apart from old age. We have known her since she started with Dr Lamers and followed her when opened her own practice. We like to thank everyone in the Fox Creek Animal Family for being number one in our books.Laurie P.Laurie P. ★★★★★ Dr. Henze did such a great job treating our two crazy hounds. He successfully treated our dog’s resistant hook worm, and has been able to help us through several episodes of GI issues, including walking time through the proper steps when our dog ate pork ribs. Highly recommend!Christopher C.Christopher C. ★★★★★ Best experience EVER!!!! My baby Quik who is a little 6 lbs Pomeranian Shih Tzu had his first appointment there. Zanida the certified vet tech is wonderful. She is very caring and was amazingly thorough throughout the whole process. When Dr. H got in she and Quik got along immediately. The peanut butter treats he loved. The whole experience was just great. Thank you Zanida and Dr. H!!checkmate423checkmate423 ★★★★★ Loving and caring professionals that will treat your pet as if it were their own!Mark M.Mark M. ★★★★★ I tried another vet in the area first and was sorely disappointed. So when I made my first appt here, I didn’t have high hopes. LO AND BEHOLD I have come to love this vet office. I have 3 cats that have been seen by Dr. Henze and Dr. Kostrewski. They are both new wave vets (recently graduated) and I appreciate their modern approach and transparency so much. They take the time to explain things to me and answer my questions. They are respectful of my decision to take (or not take) their advice. And most importantly, they and all of the office staff are always as gentle as possible with my cats. You can tell this is an office of animal lovers. If you’re looking for a new safe place to bring your fur babies, look no further.Reilly M.Reilly M. ★★★★★ Very professional, compassionate, and empathy was shown towards us in an emergency situation. We called the hospital, and were told to bring our dog in ASAP...unfortunately, we had to have our dog euthanized. Everyone made our situation somehow a bit bearable.

Dr. Ashley Boyd is a real asset to veterinary medicine. I TRUST HER WITH MY DOGS, her surgical skills are excellent ( I have watched EVERY PROCEDURE EVER PERFORMED ON MY FUR-BABIES & as a retired operating room nurse, I recognize great techniques & skills.) She truly cares for her patients and their human parents!! Thank you Dr. Boyd for being such a genuine, skilled doctor. Thank you Hanna Whiting for being her right hand today!! Love you BOTH!


Dr. Boyd and her staff are the best I also had the privilege to work with her at a previous clinic and so very happy she now has her own practice. She is one of the most caring and knowledgeable vets I have ever known and look forward to many more years of wonderful service.

April P.
