Welcome to Caring Paws Animal Hospital Your family's 'other' Doctor!

At Caring Paws Animal Hospital, your pet's health and well-being are always our first priority. We work together as a family to provide exceptional medical care for your cherished companion.

Dr. Danielson and a furry friend

Dr. David Danielson has been practicing small animal and exotic veterinary medicine in the Tampa Bay area since 1994. He has enjoyed meaningful relationships with multiple generations of pet families, and cares for all pets as though they are his own. Our roots in the community run deep, and we couldn't be prouder of our longstanding association with Suncoast Animal League, a no-kill, no-time-limit animal rescue agency in Palm Harbor that has amassed global support on social media for its heroic, life-saving efforts.

Dr. Danielson has developed a reputation for solving complex, difficult to diagnose cases by digging deeper to reveal sometimes less-than-obvious clues to the source of a pet's distress. He likens his approach to that of a detective, sorting through clues and leaving no stone unturned until a resolution is achieved.

Caring Paws Animal Hospital is a family-owned practice whose mission is to deliver progressive and personalized veterinary care to families with cats, dogs, and exotic pets. We also place a high priority on ensuring our pet parents are well educated and highly informed on all aspects of their pet's health. Our staff will take the time necessary to fully explain all treatments and procedures to ensure you are comfortable with what is being done for your pet.

Dr. Danielson and his entire team look forward to welcoming you and your furred, feathered, or scaled companions into the Caring Paws family. We are honored to have the opportunity to care for your best friend and help them live long, happy, and healthy lives!

We welcome you to tour our new, state-of-the-art animal hospital and meet our team of compassionate and extraordinary veterinary professionals.

Please don't hesitate to call us if you have any questions about our practice. We look forward to meeting you and providing your pets with a lifetime of compassionate, quality healthcare.

“I have never met a doctor or office as compassionate and genuinely care as much as caring paws. We love them so much when we moved we drive over an hour just to continue the care at this vet. My dog Groot is incredibly timid and the doctor takes his time to get him at ease.”

“Dr. Danielson is fantastic! Where do I start? Hands down the best vet in the Tampa area! He’s extremely empathetic and you can tell he truly cares about the animals he sees. He is also very good about figuring out the root cause of problems, not just treating symptoms. He fit us in on a day he was fully booked when we had an injured chicken. I also like that it’s a small practice with just one vet. I won’t take my pets anywhere else from now on!”

“Dr. Danielson is more like a kindly pediatrician than a veterinarian to my four-legged "children", as he calls all his patients. When my "babies" are sick and can't tell us what hurts, his calm, caring manner and thorough pursuit of a correct diagnosis has always put me at ease.”
