Nassau Veterinary Hospital

Our main goal at Nassau Veterinary Hospital is to provide our clients and patients with the most compassionate, competent, and up-to-date medical care available. At Nassau Veterinary Hospital we regard our clients and patients as “family” and strive to maintain an atmosphere that promotes the delivery of the best possible medical service anywhere!!

Another goal of our hospital is to pursue an aura of excellence, as exhibited by our modern equipment, caring and knowledgeable staff, and the extreme cleanliness of our facility. Our employees take pride in themselves and their ability to provide our clients with the best service possible. We are proud of our expertise, but we will be grateful to refer our patients to other facilities where Board-certified specialists can handle some of our more complicated and life-threatening illnesses.

Dr. Kimberly Carter opened the doors to our clinic in 1997 with the drive to practice the highest quality medicine to all of the surrounding areas. She has achieved just that. Through her hard work and dedication we are able to be one of the top quality hospitals in all of North East Florida. Here at Nassau Veterinary Hospital, we are dedicated to giving honest and compassionate care to your beloved furry friends. Come meet our awesome staff.

    Practice Owner
    I was born in St. Petersburg, Florida, and I have been close to the water all my life. From the time I was 4 years old, I knew in my heart that I wanted to take care of animals. I was blessed with parents that encouraged me to follow my dreams, and in 1991, I graduated from the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. I truly believe that I received an exceptional education there, and was instilled with a desire to always keep an open mind, and that you NEVER stop learning! I came to Fernandina Beach after graduation, and fell in love…..my affinity for the ocean, and my desire to live in a small community where I could make a difference, all came together. I opened Nassau Veterinary Hospital in 1997 and was committed to making our hospital a place for the animals, not the “people”. I wanted a medical facility that was outstandingly clean, and extremely comfortable. My patients must “feel” the love that happens inside our walls…..

    I would like to tell you that I truly enjoy my job and have special interests in Internal Medicine, Orthopedic Surgery, and Preventative Health Care. I find my job to be challenging and rewarding. I strive to make my patient’s lives and the interaction they have with their owners as rewarding, healthy and happy as possible. I value each and every family that visits us and realize that each situation is unique and is to be cherished and respected.

    I am married to Brian Scott, and have 2 furry children. We share our home with 2 dogs, "Maddie" and "Liza". Both dogs were rescues….Liza from our local humane society after she came to me to repair her broken leg. Maddie was an abuse case that I took in…

    I enjoy running, scuba diving, international travel and just being with Brian and the dogs, no matter what we are doing!!!

    Thank you for placing your trust in us at Nassau Veterinary Hospital….we promise to do our best to make your pet’s experience the best they have ever had!!!

    I have been a part of Nassau Veterinary Hospital for almost six years. I love being a part of such a compassionate and humble practice. As a team, we strive everyday to go above and beyond for every furry friend that walks through our door. I am a proud owner of a rescued fur baby named Strawberry. She is my spirit animal. Such a rough exterior, but a soft heart. Just like me. :-) I have a beautiful eight year old son named Gabriel. He is light of my life and the clinic entertainment in the afternoons. Come on down and meet our awesome staff at Nassau Veterinary Hospital. We look forward to seeing you.

    I grew up in Connecticut where my love of animals has always had a huge influence on my future career choices. As a teenager, I started out as a kennel attendant and worked my way up. I've proudly been a Veterinary Technician for over 13 years. Medically my passion is dental care and diagnostic work where it's incredibly rewarding to make a difference in pet's lives.

    My veterinary career has taken me all over the United States from emergency care & laser specialty surgery in Texas to a large corporate practice in North Carolina. I have happily called Florida home for the past 5 years with my son Sirius.

    My son also shares my love of animals. Outside of work, we spend time fishing, embarking on outdoor adventures, visiting the zoo, four wheeling in the mud and exploring our artistic talents.
     We have two fur babies, a German Shepherd named Kira and a grey kitty names Hayze.    

    I'm thrilled to now be a part of a such a high-quality hospital within a small town community.

    I grew up on a farm my whole life right here in Hilliard. I have always had a compassion for animals. Growing up, I was blessed to be able to participate in 4-H club and spent most of my time with livestock. Knowing my passion for animals, I decided to start working as a Kennel Technician at Nassau County Animal Services. I knew this is where I wanted to be. After working in the shelters for over two year, I decided to further my technician career in Gainsville. I will be finishing up my CVT degree in the next few months. I currently have multiple fur babies to keep me busy in my life.....3 dogs, a rescue cat, and two horses. I am excited to move back to my small town and join the team at Nassau Vet Hospital!

    Howdy! 
    My name is Zachary and I have been in love with animals since I was 14 years old. Raised in Jacksonville, my love for animals actually started when I would visit my Uncle's cattle farm in North Carolina. Being there every summer really made me realize what I wanted to do with my life. I am currently attending the University of North Florida hoping to one day become a veterinarian myself. 
    I have really loved being a part of Nassau Veterinary Hospital. It is such a welcoming and fun atmosphere. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies soon!!
