A New Chapter for Dr. Kris Painter

The closure of Clearwater Animal Referral and Emergency (CARE) marks a bittersweet transition for our community. While CARE was a trusted source of 24/7 emergency care and specialized veterinary services, we recognize the incredible contributions of Dr. Kris Painter.

Dr. Painter's skills and compassion have been invaluable to countless pet owners. As CARE closes its doors, we wish Dr. Painter all the best in her future endeavors within the veterinary field. Her expertise will undoubtedly continue to make a positive impact wherever her path leads.

Understanding the Impact

The loss of an emergency veterinary facility leaves pet owners with fewer options for urgent care outside of regular clinic hours. This can be particularly concerning for complex cases or those requiring advanced treatment.

Finding Alternatives

While we acknowledge the changes brought by CARE's closure, it's important for pet owners to know that there are still resources available. Dunedin Animal Medical Center (DAMC) is committed to providing quality emergency care for pets in need. Our dedicated team is equipped to handle a variety of urgent care situations.
