Jon D. Zern, DVM:      

A 1992 graduate of University of Florida School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Zern is a lifelong resident of Central Florida.  He now lives in Geneva with his wife, Laura, and daughter, Skylar. 

Dr. Z has extensive experience in emergency/critical care medicine and surgery and is able to provide excellent care in the most serious of situations.  He also excels at educating clients on how to keep pets happy and healthy by preventing possible problems.  When problems arise he uses thorough examination diagnostics to help determine the exact nature of the problem and offers owners all their options in treatment.

His main objective is to keep your animals as healthy as possible, without insisting on excessive treatments or products.  He is very thorough in his examinations and takes time to explain the details of your pet's health. 

In his (limited) free time Dr. Z likes to relax by racking up miles on his mountain bike. When he can't be on two wheels he enjoys fishing, scuba diving, hiking and most anything outdoors.  He and his family have three Chihuahuas - Gracie, Penny, and Hot Pocket, a cat called Milquetoast, and one horse - Coraletto aka "Checkers".
