Our Hospital


A BRIEF HISTORY OF SANFORD ANIMAL HOSPITAL:
Sanford Animal Hospital was built and founded at it's current location by Dr. William K. Settle in 1959. After 2 decades of being Sanford's country veterinarian, Dr. "Bill" expanded and renovated his building. In 1980 his daughter, Dr. Katherine Settle came back home to Sanford to practice veterinary medicine. She decided to bring her husband, Dr. John Shontz, along with her too! The practice included the care and treatment of all species of animals including an ambulatory service for farm animals and horses, and 24/7 emergency services. Due to increasing business, Drs. John and Katherine opened a second clinic in the northwest part of Lee County and transferred all the large animal work over there. Another major building expansion was completed in 1999. We currently dedicate our practice and concentrate our expertise on the wellness of our canine and feline friends.
