About Sunshine Animal Hospital
Full Service privately owned Small Animal Practice. Three full-time veterinarians on staff. This well-established practice has served the Town & Country community for over 30 years. When the founder, Dr. James Barrie retired in 2016, he sold the practice to Dr. Mark Twilla, who has been an associate at Sunshine Animal Hospital since 2000. He and the other owner (practice manager) are actively involved in the practice on a daily basis.
We completed a top to bottom renovation during 2017 and have expanded our advertising and social media presence. As a result we continue to grow and build the practice. Our team of owners, doctors and staff enjoy a quality working environment with low turn over, and a good work/life balance.
