Dr Arnone has taken care of our pets for several years, what a great vet. He's seen my pets on emergency basis as well as senior care. He's the best vet in town and what a great staff.

BEWARE of this vet, if your pet needs something simple like annual shots and will never get seriously ill while in his care then Dr. Arnone is good for the simple things any vet can do, but if your pet is sick this vet is one of the worst vets you can go to. He treated my cat, wrong treatment plan, wrong meds, botched procedure, afterward in the middle of the night I had to rush to the emergency clinic, found out there that he treated my cat incorrectly causing my cat to be in agony, inserting a urinary catheter not once but twice incorrectly that I was told was likley to short to even reach his bladder causing a serious infection and painful agony, he had to stay in the UF emergency clinic for days but in the end the infection was so serious he died! If I wouldn't have tried to save a very few bucks and went to a good vet I feel my cat would be alive today, I will always live with that guilt, don't make the same mistake. Dr, Arnone apologized to me for what happen to my cat because of his care, he said he learned from his multiple mistakes and would be doing things different from now on, who cares I say, my cats dead. He had a urinary blockage and might be alive today in my opinion and in the opinion of the UF vet if I would have taken him to a vet that knew what he was doing. I reported and filed a complaint with the Marion County Veterinary Medical association where they determined he needed some re-education and gave him many consequence's due to my case including that when any pet with this type of urinary problem comes into his care he has to submit the case to another assigned vet who has to consult, oversea and approve of his treatment plan to insure he doesn't make the same mistakes again. I am just talking about the tip of the ice burg here, he made multiple mistakes admittedly and proven by investigation, didn't keep sufficient records, told me he did diagnostic tests which he said was how he determined the treatment plan, it was prov-en that he lied to me, told me his diagnoses was based on his complete urinalysis he preformed and in fact he did NO test at all but told me he did, so did my cat need the type of treatment he prescribed or not, I will never know. With all that said it is still just the tip of the ice burge, there was so many other things he did wrong that this review could go on for pages. After all this, I have no satisfaction because he was penalized, or because he finally admitted it to me after getting backed into a corner all his regrets associated with my case, or after he paid my UF emergency care and hospitalization bill as if that would make up for the loss of my cat, all I have is regret and more regret about putting my loved baby in his care who is now dead. Go anywhere and to any other vet but never make my mistake by ever going to DR. Arnone, in my educated opinion he is a sub-par vet with anxiety issues and has no clue what he is doing, not only will you pay the price for this but so will your pet in the end. This all happened in 2013.

I have been using this hospital for years and I have to say the staff are so knowledgable and great with my pets! They treat us all very well, Mrs. Arnone gives my children candy and a hug every time we come in Very Sweet lady! I highly recommend them if you are looking for people who REALLY care about your pets!

My rescue uses SSS and we could not be happier. Despite the staff turn over- The treatment provided to our fosters is always fabulous. Dr. Arnone and Dr. Albano are very intune to the needs of our fosters and and every foster walks out the door better than when they walked in. I also use them for my personal pets.

We have been taking our pets to SSS Animal Clinic for several years. The staff has ALWAYS been polite, kind and helpful. Recently Dr. Arnone has been treating our cat, Danger, for a sever eye injury. We have only Praise & Respect for the compassion, treatment plan and care that Dr. Arnone, the staff and his sweetheart mother have given our cat. They have used every means to diagnose and treat him, while trying to keep the expense manageable for us.

They balance Professional & Family Atmosphere into a clinic. Comforting and appropriate when treating our "Animal Family" We highly recommend them to anyone who cares for their pet!

And we're happy to report, Danger's eye injury is healing nicely and he is back to his spry self!

Thank you,
Pete & Staci

Dr. Arnone and his staff are incredible.

They helped us through a horrible ordeal with our pet, who had to be put down, they were sensitive and understanding and I have used them since 1989 for all of my animals. You can not match the compassion!

I've been going to Dr. Arnone for 15+ yrs. He is very dedicated to his patients & his profession. I've had a few rough times with my pets & he has always been there for us(even after hours). From our Chihuahuas & Mastiffs to our cats - (We have a good variety to test his knowledge & compassion). Yes, there is a large staff turnover, but I go for Dr. Arnone, not the staff. He definitely knows what he is doing. He is fair & understanding and straightforward at the same time. His heart is in the right place. I couldn't imagine going to another vet. I highly recommend him.

I agree.. while the staff does change fairly often, by in large the staff that is there usually know what they are doing. Although, I have had a few not too satisfactory experiences with the "new faces" as well.I would have to agree with the comment down 2 -3 posts. The doctor doesn't seem to be all there. Which doesn't make me feel comfortable about taking my pet there anymore.

I am a former employee of Silver Springs Shores Animal Hosp and I can tell you all that Dr. Arnone and Dr. Albano are the best Vets I have ever had take care of my Animals, The Staff does change once in a while but the Staff is always on top of things. Sure sometimes Clients want to diagnose for themselves what they think is wrong with their pets, and sometimes they are right but the animal can't tell the Doctor or the Staff whats wrong with it, So Questions are asked of the client and sometimes the client gets angry as to why so many Questions are asked. This is part of how to find out whats wrong with your pet. People This is a great clinic to take your pets to and a great Caring and loving Staff who all Love animals.

I have taken my pets there for years but do agree that they appear many times to not know what they are doing. When I get a bad feeling about it I cancel. There is a fair amount of employee turnover and many times I have to tell them what I think the problem is or what I feel they should treat and then that turns out to be correct.
Where do others feel more comfortable?

I like the staff I'm just not sure the doctors are all together. They never seem to give a straight answer or they beat around the bush when they aren't sure.. I never had a bad experience just not fully convinced of there knowledge.

Remember the old adage "You get what you pay for". That applies to Silver Spring Shores Animal Hospital. There are plenty of Vets in Ocala who are more caring and compassionate about your pet. I am a former employee and speak from "insider" experience.

I have taken my 3 dogs and 3 cats to Dr. Arnone for over 9 years. They are always able to see the animal in a reasonable amount of time, know patients and their owners
and are extremely reasonable.
Their new location and state of the art building is both convenient and has ample parking. You will and your pet will
love Dr Arnone and his staff.
