Dr. Beau Delaporte and the staff of Mount Dora Veterinary Hospital are always working to keep you and your pets very happy. This has been the goal of the hospital since it was originally founded by Dr. Bill Delaporte in 1985. Our mission is to provide you and your pets with service of the highest quality, keeping your companions healthy and giving you piece of mind. We are a family run, full-service veterinary hospital. We pride ourselves in really getting to know our clients and their needs.

We offer all services for cats and dogs at our hospital. Included are annual vaccinations, wellness exams, dental care, outpatient care, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, all laboratory exams, etc... We benefit because we are located close to several referral hospitals to greatly increase the level of care given in our area. Also, we are currently the only veterinary hospital in Lake County to offer Laser surgery for our patients. A new painless, bloodless option for our surgical patients. Laser declawing is standard for cats now. Call us if you have any questions!

We believe that it is through communicating with you, the pet owner, that we can both work together to give your pet a happy and healthy home environment. Pets are an impo rtant part of all our lives, and we want nothing more than to ensure that your friends remain with you for a long, long time.

You're always welcome at Mount Dora Veterinary Hospital; we hope that you will join us sometime.
