Dr.  Leonard Fox

Dr. Fox is the founder and owner of the Animal Hospital of West Port St. Lucie.  He began his career in veterinary medicine over 25 years ago.  Prior to his opening the practice in Port St. Lucie, he owned a practice for 15 years.   He decided to sell the practice to the Vet Centers of America and began working with marine mammals.  Dr. Fox missed working with small animals and in 2007 decided to open a clinic.  He spent months finding a town where his expertise would be needed.  His desire to bring high quality veterinary care to Port St. Lucie and surrounding areas led to the founding of the Animal Hospital of West Port St. Lucie.  He purchased an old home and transformed it into a state of the art animal hospital.  Dr.  Fox leads his team and strives to provide an environment that has the compassion, resources, training and expertise to provide the best care for your pets.  Dr.  Fox speaks both English and Spanish.


When he is not at the clinic seeing Port St. Lucie’s most loved animals, he can be found spending time with his family, coaching soccer and giving back to the community.  He partners with the Humane Society of St. Lucie on public awareness on several subjects.  He also works closely with St. Lucie County Animal Control on rehabilitation of injured pets and wildlife.  In May of 2016, Dr. Fox was presented with the Award of Gratitude from the Humane Society of St. Lucie County.

Dr. Tiffany Schmidt

Dr. Schmidt comes to us from Glendale, Arizona with 10 years of experience working with small animals for 7 years, and equine for 3 years.  Her veterinary interests include preventative medicine, internal medicine, dental, elective surgery and emergency surgery.  She has a love for all animals and building relationships with her patients and their families.

Dr. Schmidt loves the outdoors and physical fitness.  In her spare time, she enjoys working out, yoga, aerial yoga, horseback riding, paddle boarding, hiking and spending time with her fury family which includes 2 dogs and 4 cats.


Doctor Fox and his staff are simply the best! They always take care of my dogs and keep me informed every step of the way when I bring my dogs to their facility. They are the best Animal hospital around and I highly recommend them!
