Our Story

Our veterinary hospital was founded in Tampa by Dr. Laura Palma in 1998. With the opening of this facility, Dr. Palma worked diligently to manifest her vision of an animal hospital that provided top-notch, personalized veterinary care using state-of-the-art equipment in a warm and welcoming environment, throughout the pet's full Circle of Life. Her many years of experienced veterinary medicine started when she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University in 1985. She settled in the Sunshine State in 1992, opened COLAH soon thereafter and has been happily serving local pet-owners ever since.
