We’re local

We’re proud to be locally owned and happy to serve the Flagler County community where we live, work, and get our feet sandy with our furry friends. Join us on social media and watch for our next community event. We love to give back and have fun with our pet loving crew.

Environmental Sustanability

Pets make the world a better place. We learning from their example by striving to improve Southern Wind Animal Hospital’s environmental sustainability with the following policies:

  • Trying to reduce plastic usage as much as possible in the clinic.
  • Recycling everything we can and striving to be as “paper light” as possible.
  • Our toilet paper and paper towels are made of bamboo and sugarcane
  • Our small retail area has environmentally friendly options for pet owners
  • Our coffee machine is Nespresso and the pods are 100% recycled
  • Using bamboo or monkey pod in place of other woods and plastics
  • Using full spectrum light bulbs that can be better for our health and lower pet stress and anxiety.
  • Using recycled cotton canvas bags instead of plastic bags for our clients

Our staff is also involved in beach cleanups that we invite our clients to join in on. We also support organizations such as Surfrider and Ocean Conservancy to care for and protect our natural resources.
