At The Animal Clinic, we strive to provide you with a diagnostic & treatment plan tailored to fit your needs.
Donald Burroughs, DVMVerterinarian
Dr Burroughs started The Animal Clinic in 1976. He built a practice on honesty, integrity, and respect for his clients and their pets. People value his opinion, and we know that the clients love him.
He is no longer with us on a regular basis, but is here daily in spirit. He does continue with us as a relief veterinarian as needed, so you may still get a rare visit with the awe-inspiring Dr. B, if you’re lucky! 😉
Mary Kolb, DVMVeterinarian
Dr Mary Kolb is a 2011 Cornell University graduate who originally started out as a mixed animal veterinarian working on the New Orleans police horses and carriage mules.
After a couple years, she joined her husband who was working internationally and got to travel to a new country every few months. She was able to help out some amazing animal rescue organizations around the world.
Dr. Mary and her husband later settled in Florida after having their daughter and have recently moved to saint Petersburg to be closer to family.
An avid outdoors person even in spite of the Florida heat, Dr. Mary rides horses and plays the cello in her spare time. She is excited to be a new member of the animal clinic team and is already impressed by what a great group of friends they are.
Libby ComptonCVT / Hospital Manager
Libby has been a veterinary technician at The Animal Clinic since 1994, working along side Dr.Burroughs, and now Dr. Mary Kolb. She has both her veterinary technology and architectural design degrees from SPC.
In 2014, Dr. Burroughs expressed a desire to retire from veterinary practice, and Libby purchased the practice in order to keep things as smooth as possible for clients and employees.
On a personal note, Libby has a hobby farm with her husband which includes horses, cattle, chickens, goats, and of course dogs. She enjoys very much spending time at home, as it is very relaxing to be outdoors on the farm, getting dirty. It is the best “grown up playground”!
