Since 1986, Animal Hospital of Treasure Island has cared for the furred and fanged residents of our beaches with conscientious compassion.
Doctors Charles Allen and Joci Forkner acquired the practice in 2015, and continue the hospital’s tradition of exemplary veterinary service for pets on Treasure Island and in the surrounding area.
Both of these dedicated veterinarians have their own menageries. Dr. Allen has a lab mix named Frankie, two dachshunds named Whiskey and Phoebe, and three cats named Mao, Charlie Tango, and Chunky Cat. Dr. Forkner lives with Bindi, a Dutch shepherd mix; Gillie, a Belgian Malinois; two Chihuahuas named Shrimp and Churro; and three cats: Brady, Mobitz, and Kraken.
Drs. Allen and Forkner are assisted in their mission of caring for the area’s companion animals by a small but dedicated staff. Cindy has been with the practice since 2014, and immerses herself in caring not only for the pets that are brought to the office, but also for the bulldogs she adopts from rescue organizations and for the residents of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where she is a volunteer. Wendy joined the staff in 2015, and is also a dedicated foster “parent.” She has fostered with Florida Poodle Rescue, and currently has a mastiff, a shih tzu, and three cats.
Together, doctors and staff provide a full service veterinary clinic and hospital, providing annual wellness exams, labs and screenings, veterinary dentistry, vaccinations, canine fitness, pain management, microchipping, a pharmacy, and hospice and euthanasia services.
As a service to their patients’ human counterparts, Animal Hospital of Treasure Island maintains on its website a variety of resources, including a pet care library, a video library, listings of pet food recalls and poisonous plants, and a directory of links to a variety of agencies and organizations offering helpful information.
Animal Hospital of Treasure Island has participated with the Treasure Island & Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce not only as an active member, but also as a donor to our various events throughout the year, providing us with door prizes and auction items with a pet-centered theme.
