School Teddy Bear Clinic
We will come to your school! We can provide an opportunity for kids to learn about this industry through the care and repair of their stuffed animal!
Children bring their own tattered teddy bear to the Teddy Bear Clinic for a check-up with a Veterinarian from Newberry Animal Hospital. We will ‘patch up’ your favorite tattered teddy...or other stuffed animal!
Services Available: Stitch loose seams, listen to the heartbeat, ‘splint’ broken limbs and apply pawprint patch or bandage. Click here to see the Certificate of Health that is given to the child to take home!
We can also visit your school for your CAREER DAYS, whether it's elementary, middle or high school. One of our Doctors will visit and can talk about the schooling required or why someone might want to be a Veterinarian, or any specific vet industry topic, if you have one in mind!

Newberry Animal Hospital can set up an event table at your pet-related event. Here is Dr. Baltzley at the Park Avenue Apartments near our 39th Avenue location.

Newberry Animal Hospital doesn't just provide excellent veterinary care in Gainesville and Newberry, Florida. We believe in supporting the community that allows us to operate as a small local business entity during a time when many businesses are being purchased by large, corporate entities.
To actively show our support, we are a member of the United Way Small Business Partnership board. In addition, we regularly sponsor many local events like the Newberry Main Street Fall Festival, Five Points of Life One-Miler, the Stop Childrens Cancer Holiday Concert, PK Yonge's Performing Arts Programs, and Woofstock, benefitting the Alachua County Humane Society, just to name a few.
