History

Buffalo Ridge Animal Hospital was established in 2008 by Peterson & Smith Equine Hospital of Ocala, Florida. We continue to serve the needs of the community of The Villages, Fl. Services include preventative wellness care, surgery, dentistry, acupuncture, boarding, and grooming. 

Buffalo Ridge saw the need for emergency animal care services in The Villages and its surrounding area, and in 2012 became a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week facility providing urgent care and emergency services. We are the only emergency animal hospital in The Villages open nights, weekends and holidays. 

In 2013, Buffalo Ridge Animal Hospital at Pinellas Plaza opened, providing animal wellness care in the expanding areas of The Villages. Pinellas Plaza is open Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and closed on weekends and holidays. The clinic also offers boutique pet items such as toys, treats, and pet accessories. 

Buffalo Ridge Animal Hospital is dedicated to helping the community and actively supports local humane societies through organized events. Every Spring, we host a free Annual Paper Shredding Event asking only for donations toward local humane societies of Lake and Sumter counties. We are also a premier sponsor for Strut Your Mutt Charity Dog Walk every winter in The Villages to raise money for the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. 

Since the beginning of our hospital, we have held a fundraiser and food drive to benefit the Humane Society of Sumter County with our Portraits with Santa event, which has proven to be a popular event our clients look forward to every December. A free digital copy of your pet's portrait is given with a donation.
