The Animal Clinic Staff Profiles

Sally Rizzo, CVT

Veterinary Nurse 

Since before I could walk, I had a passion for animals.  I began in the field shortly after high school in 2002. It did not take me long to realize this was the career choice for me. I pursued an advanced degree from St. Petersburg Collage and in 2012 I was officially destowed my Certified Veterinary Technician status.

My special interests are in dentistry and nutrition but I have a love for all areas of veterinary medicine.

My pets: I currently have two mixed breed dogs. Shadow Marie and Gomer Pile, and a domestic short haired cat, May May.  I also have three two legged children, and I spend all of my free time with my husband family and friends. 

I love being in the veterinary medicine field, and I feel if you love the work you do then it is not work at all. I love coming to work every day and helping people and their pets.

Esther Long

Veterinary Nurse

I started working for The Animal Clinic in March of 2014.  At the age of 8 I moved from Brazil to Florida and have spent the majority of my years here.  I have worked in both emergency and day practice for many years.  Education has always been very important to me, thus I attended Edison College as well as Southwest Florida College.  Each day on the job I learn more and am blessed to be surrounded by such knowledgeable coworkers.  Animals are my passion and while I haven't always worked with them, I have always felt like something was missing.  I look forward to continuing my education and experience with The Animal Clinic.

Veterinarian, D.V.M 

February 21st 2018

Hello everyone,  Just a quick update. Now that I'm 60, I have decided that it is time for me to start a new chapter in my life.  I'm going to retire and move to Key West with my husband and pets. I have been extremely lucky to have called The Animal Clinic my home for such a long time. Dr. Rand and Dr. Seibert are truly two of the most knowledgeable and compassionate veterinarians I have ever met. The nursing staff at The Animal Clinic are some of the very best in the business, they care for your pets like they were their own. I will miss seeing you and all of your pets so very much, but they could be in no better hands than the doctors and staff at The Animal Clinic.
