Dr Uthaya Kumar
Veterinarian and Owner - Oak Tree Animal Hospital
As owner and veterinarian of Oak Tree Animal Hospital in Tampa FL, I personally want to welcome you our website.
I graduated from Madras Veterinary College. Madras Veterinary College was founded in 1903, in Veprey, Chennai India. I also attended Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana where I obtained additional training and education.
At Montana State University, I completed a master’s degree in veterinary medicine and molecular biology. After graduation, I worked as a biomedical researcher for several years, but I was not doing what I wanted to do. My passion has always been to have my own animal hospital and provide the best veterinary pet healthcare that I could. So, I moved to Tampa to become a Tampa veterinarian. After moving to Tampa, I also completed a one year small animal medicine clinical rotation at the University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine in Gainesville FL. There is nothing like working at a veterinary teaching hospital to gain additional knowledge, insight and training.
After moving to Tampa, I worked as an associate veterinarian in Tampa Bay animal hospital. I eventually bought Oak Tree Animal Hospital in Northwest Tampa and finally fulfilled my dream. It was long and hard work to get here, but it was well worth it. I now have over ten years of small animal veterinary medical experience, of which eight have been at Oak Tree Animal Hospital.
I also enjoy reading and writing and have even published a short collection. In fact, I am honored to have received the 2007 bronze medal award which was presented by The Florida Book Awards in the General Fiction (Uthaya Kumar – “Ticket to the Moon” – Miami: Bouncing Ball Books).
Well, that’s enough about me. As a practicing veterinarian in the Tampa Bay area, I would certainly like to become your Tampa Veterinarian and it would be an honor to provide my services for your pet.

What’s a Veterinarian (Vet)
First of all, veterinary medicine is actually considered a branch of science, which deals with the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of disease, disorder and injury in animals.
The scope of being a veterinarian is extremely wide. Both domesticated and wild animals are included in a veterinarian’s responsibilities. Just knowing about all the different domesticated species is over whelming. Many people expect their veterinarian to be all knowing.
Animal/Vet Hospital or Clinic
For this discussion and simplicity, veterinary hospital and animal hospital are the same, as are veterinary clinic and animal clinic. The key is “hospital” versus “clinic”.
The distinction between veterinary hospital and veterinary clinic is getting more blurred. You have probably heard or read, “we are a full service animal hospital in Tampa FL”. There are many Tampa animal hospitals which will use “full service” in their description. So what does that mean. Maybe the following will help in distinguishing between those which are an animal hospital in Tampa and those which are a Tampa animal clinic.
