We at Willowdale Veterinary Center are dedicated to providing the highest quality pet health care to our patients and their families by combining a modern well-equipped veterinary facility and compassionate professional staff with the old-fashioned idea of service and dependability.

Willowdale demonstrates its commitment to quality care by its continued membership and accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association. As a member of AAHA since 1988, we at the Willowdale Veterinary Center are dedicated to providing excellence in small animal care. Our hospital is evaluated regularly by AAHA to ensure that we meet or exceed their association’s high quality standards of excellence. These standards cover nearly every aspect of our hospital including surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, pet health records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental and nursing care, diagnostic imaging and anesthesiology. Fewer than 14% of animal hospitals in North American are accredited by AAHA, which is recognized around the world as the benchmark for quality care in veterinary medicine.

In conjunction with Schering Plough Animal Health Corporation, Willowdale invites you to visit www.willowdalevets.myvetonline.com and learn more about many pet health care concerns.

During your visit to Willowdale you may want to take additional time to enjoy the murals on the walls throughout the entire hospital. We are very proud to show them off. They were painted by a special friend of the practice.

Willowdale Veterinary Center Staff Profiles

Dr. Jean Otte

Greetings/Aloha! I'm Dr. Jean Otte. I own Willowdale Veterinary Center and practice small animal medicine here. I love my job so I'm here most of the time! I enjoy riding and showing my paint horses, baseball (I sponsor the Jacksonville Indians) and my two almost grown sons (1 Seminole and 1 Gator). I grew up on a farm in Iowa and have veterinary experience with racing Greyhound dogs and racing Thoroughbred horses. Stop in! I'd love to meet you!

Dr. Linda O’Donnell

Dr. O'Donnell founded the Willowdale Veterinary Center in 1988, naming the practice after her hometown in Ontario, Canada. In 2001, she sold the business to Dr. Otte so that she and her husband Bob, a retired Jacksonville Sheriff Officer, could have time to build their own house. Dr. O' Donnell continues to serve her patients as a veterinarian and enjoys gardening and cooking in her spare time.
