Dr. Forrest Townsend, with the help of his wife Sally, established Bayside Hospital for Animals in 1994. We are a full-service,small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care.
We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, and closely supervised hospitalization area. We also are equipped to perform ultrasound, endoscopic, and electrocardiogram testing when special diagnostic procedures are required. Our hospital is an approved preceptor/externship hospital for Auburn University and University of Florida's Schools of Veterinary Medicine providing learning experiences for veterinary students.
At Bayside Hospital for Animals we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
