Glenda Wiechman, DVM (pictured on left with Dr. Michael Dryden, Ph.D who is known in the veterinary community as Dr. Flea for his flea expertise and research) graduated in 1997 with Honors from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. Her experience with professional animal care began at an early age of 18 years old working at her first veterinary clinic. Dr. Wiechman's dream of building her own private practice was realized with help from her mother. They established the Animal Hospital at Oakleaf Plantation which is a Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) in 2007. The Animal Hospital has been a permanent part of Oakleaf for over 10 years and growing. Its clients visit from areas throughout Jacksonville, Orange Park, Middleburg, Macclenny, and Green Cove Springs. She is very appreciative to all of her clients who have trusted her and her staff to the special care and well-being of their loved ones.
