About Us

About Longwood Veterinary Center

Longwood Veterinary Center was the combined dream of Dr. Carla Andrews and Dr. Laurie Strine that became reality in 1998. It is a small privately-owned hospital that operates more like a family than a business. Our hospital employs seven dedicated veterinarians and 20+ compassionate nursing and administrative staff. Many of the members of our Longwood Veterinary Center team have over 20 years of experience. Our facility offers state of the art equipment and technology along with specialty services not often offered in the general practice setting.

We strive to provide exceptional medical care and customer service while building lifelong relationships with you, your family, and your pets. We are of the opinion it is extremely important your pet feels comfortable here and implement handling methods that reduce stress and make veterinary visits positive for all. We offer an experience tailored exclusively to your pet’s medical needs and personality and strive to make a meaningful impact in all of our patient’s lives.


Longwood Veterinary has several important accreditations. Find out why that is so important for you and your pet below:

Communication will be Detailed and efficient. Our doctors and staff work hard to relay information promptly and be available for consultation. Our knowledgeable staff will help answer questions and advise you as best as possible.
