Dr. David Wilkinson, DVM

Dr. David Wilkinson received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University. After graduating, he returned to his hometown, Haines City. In 1987 he opened the Heart of Florida Animal Hospital and, with seeing a need for pet boarding in the area, opened the Pet Resort in 1996. Dr. Wilkinson provides high quality care for cats and dogs, however, over the years he has helped tigers, llamas, lions and snakes.

Community service is important to Dr. Wilkinson. He has served on Haines City’s Community Redevelopment Agency board and has mentored teenagers who were interested in pursuing veterinary careers. He provides free vet care for Haines City’s PD K-9 unit.

Dr. Wilkinson is married to his high school sweetheart, Connie, and has a daughter and son. He enjoys fishing and breeds boxer dogs. His love for animals started at a young age, having grown up his around his grandparents’ farms, and is still evident today with having horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, ducks and geese at his home.
