About Duke Animal Clinic, L.L.C.
The Duke Animal Clinic at 1962 Schillinger Rd. S. has been established in the western suburbs of Mobile, Alabama for 40 years. Our goal is to provide consistent, high quality veterinary health care to the community. Currently, the staff consists of two full time veterinarians, one part-time veterinarian, a veterinary ophthalmologist and a veterinary dentist. The support personnel includes three licensed veterinary technicians, and three skilled assistants. We participate with a local community college in their veterinary technology program and have at least one student each semester.
Our practice has an interesting variety of cases and is an excellent place to develop your practice skills with mentors that are motivated to help you learn. Not only does the ophthalmology, dentistry and equine emphasis in our practice provide a unique experience, but our work with local rescue groups insure an interesting case load. Most recently, we have added oysters to our species list. A local hatchery, three oyster nurseries and some oyster farms have needed our help with health certificates, disease testing and certifications. Maybe bees will be next?
