Established in the late 1980s, Keene Road Pet Hospital has been serving pets and their owners in Clearwater and the greater Tampa Bay area for more than 25 years.
The practice grew quickly as Dr. Cowden and his wife, Lynda, were able to offer sincere, friendly, down-home personal care in the cute little house with wooden floors on the corner of Keene Road and Gulf to Bay Boulevard.
As our business grew, our family did as well. Clients recall our kids toddling around the hospital helping mom and dad love on the patients. As the kids got older, mom needed to step into a behind-the-scenes manager role, so she could give the kids 100% of her attention. When we outgrew the little house, we contemplated adding a second story when Walgreens offered to buy the property.
New Location, New Name
In 1995, we moved across Gulf to Bay Boulevard to our current location by McDonald's® on Pegasus Avenue. With an all-new, larger, more modern facility that was no longer on Keene Road, we changed our name to A Pet's Place. We continue to strive to offer the same unique, personal experience as always in our new fun, friendly, caring environment.
