“Veterinary services” are not limited to any one category of treatment, procedure, or product. Instead, they represent a range of health care offerings provided by doctors trained in the care of companion animals. Some offerings that support the health and quality of your pet’s life are recommended consistently at specified intervals. Still, other services are recommended as your dog or cat ages and as their needs change.
Our primary veterinarian at Orange Park Animal Hospital at Oakleaf, Dr. James Gillen, has acquired special interests in preventing, diagnosing, and managing dermatologic (skin) and parasitic conditions. Skin conditions such as canine atopic dermatitis (eczema) and parasites can harm the quality of your pup’s or kitty’s life. They also represent just a few of the threats to your pet’s good health and wellbeing. Below, we’ve identified some of the most sought-after and essential services provided by our expert team to patients and their pet parents from throughout the Jacksonville area:
Our Wellness Plans for puppies, kittens, and grown cats and dogs are a great way to stay on top of the needed services to keep your fur family healthy. These plans also represent an exceptional value. And, while we emphasize wellness and prevention, accidents happen. Emergency and critical care services are available in the event of the “worst.” Call us at (904) 560 8006 to schedule your appointment at Orange Park Animal Hospital at Oakleaf.
Dr. James Gillen is originally from Puerto Rico and moved to Jacksonville, Florida at the age of 12. He knew growing up he wanted to be a veterinarian because it brings together the two things he loves most – animals and people. He completed his undergraduate degree at Florida State University and afterwards worked as a veterinary technician, an SAT/ACT tutor, and a high school teacher before completing his veterinary degree at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 2019.
Dr. Gillen has special interests in dermatology and academia and co-authored two research papers in canine atopic dermatitis and Leishmaniasis. In his free time, Dr. Gillen enjoys anything involving the water (beach/pool, surfing, scuba diving), going to theme parks, exercise (weight lifting, running, biking, boxing), and science fiction books – among other genres. Dr Gillen lives with his wife and son, one dog, two cats, and a ball python.
