About Us

Your Summerfield, Florida veterinarian!

At Live Oak Animal Clinic, we take pride in delivering personalized, compassionate care to our patients in Summerfield and surrounding areas. Our team strives to provide a comfortable environment for our patients and clients and we want everyone, either two legged or four, to feel welcome as soon as they enter our veterinary clinic. This all starts with a warm hello for you and for your pet.

Our hospital, under the new ownership of Drs. Rakes and Roberts, opened its doors in 2016 but the practice has been in existence for over 20 years and was previously under the leadership of Dr. Douglas Shearer. We offer a wide range of medical services and surgeries for dogs and cats. We’re located at 13670 SE HWY 475 Summerfield, FL 34491 and we have ample space for parking within a safe, low traffic area for your pet.

Our patients are primarily cats and dogs. Please visit our Services page to learn more about the services we provide.
