About Us

Our history

Bayshore Animal Clinic is a veterinarian owned practice that has been serving the South Tampa community since 1984. Drs. Jacob Drewes and Meegan Panzarella shared a life-goal to bringing expert veterinary care to four-legged family members at a practice of their own. After practicing for many years at 24-hour emergency and referral practices with boarded specialists, they connected with Dr. Stuart Rosenburg, the previous owner, who selected them to take over ownership. They are honored to continue his vision of excellent, compassionate veterinary care — and are proud to serve South Tampa’s finest.

Our mission

We love being a part of such an energetic, active community of pet lovers, and believe in leaving a small footprint on the earth and huge paw prints in your hearts.

Our owners

Dr. Drewes and Dr. Panzarella shared a mutual desire to excel in their profession from the time they first met in veterinary school. Together, they completed a small animal internship and practiced at emergency and referral practices with board-certified specialists for over 15 years. During this time, they gained ivory tower experience and expertise to provide the best medicine and highest standard of care to families and their four-legged children. They are proud to provide this level of care with genuine love and compassion to our families at Bayshore Animal Clinic. They love being part of the unique and progressive community of South Tampa!
