At Companion Animal Hospital, caring for pets is our passion

Here, we treat pets like family. We understand how important your companion is to you — because they’re there for you through the thick and thin of life, with a wagging tail or a happy purr, and unconditional love. Our goal is to be your partner in taking care of your pet’s physical and mental wellbeing, so you can enjoy many happy years together. So, whether your pet needs a checkup with a doctor… a caring team and top-notch medical treatments when they’re ill… or, some advice on the best food for them or how to care for them at home — we’re here for you! Here, we see dogs and cats. And, we’ll strive to make their visit a comfortable and positive experience. Come in and get to know us, and see why both you and your pet will love coming here!

    Patricia Mattson, Veterinarian

    Dr. Patricia Mattson came to Lakeland from Albany, Georgia, her hometown. She grew up with a strong family background surrounded by hunting dogs and owned her own horse since the age of 10. She originally attended veterinary school with the goal of becoming an equine practitioner but opted for our small animal friends instead. She graduated from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. After working for one year in Georgia, Dr. Mattson decided to return to sunny Florida where she worked for various clinics over the past eighteen years. She opened Companion Animal Hospital in 2009 where she strives to have a great facility with a caring and friendly staff.

When they’re ill, we’ll help get them feeling better quickly. And, we offer personalized preventive care, to help keep them healthy in the first place.

Happy Pet Parents

  • I've never had a bad visit. All of the staff is pleasant to be around, and they're knowledgeable. Dr Mattison has helped with my fur babies more than she had to. You definitely don't see many people like that anymore.

  • Absolutely the best veterinarian I have ever dealt with. Very compassionate staff who makes you feel like part of the family and not just a $, I no longer live in Polk County and travel all the way to Lakeland from New Tampa to see Dr. Mattson, highly recommend this facility.

  • These people are AMAZING. Great care, sweet, caring and compassionate staff. The vet made sure our cat was completely examined and fixed him up. They kept us updated and made sure we were comfortable with the procedures. This will definitely be our forever vet.
