Meet Our Veterinarians
Lea Clem, DVM
Dr. Lea Clem hails originally from the great state of Maine and moved to Florida with her husband, Matt, a golf course superintendent, 10 years ago to be closer to the warmer home of her snowbird parents. Between Maine and Florida, Dr. Clem lived in North Carolina where she obtained a Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Animals, however, were always her passion and when making the decision to further her degree, Dr. Clem chose to follow her heart and obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. She completed her preclinical studies at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the beautiful island of St. Kitts, and her clinical year at the University of Florida in Gainesville with a special rotation in dentistry. Dr. Clem lives in Estero with her husband, her Chow Chow, Gunner, her cat, Blake, and the latest edition - a kitten named Ollie. She enjoys paddle boarding and anything involving the water, cooking, watching golf and football, and rubbing animal bellies!!Read More

Happy Pet Parents
I have always had a great experience with Angel. Everyone there is very caring, helpful, and responsive. My kitten boarded there for the long weekend, and I felt confident he was in good care.
This organization is the best I've ever dealt with in my 40 years of pet ownership. From the reception staff, to the groomers, to the technicians, to the vets, themselves, everyone shows their true love and concern for the animals they care for.
Excellent care, highly credible and compassionate service to all our pets. Friendly and professional office staff, and knowledgeable and articulate doctors.
The entire staff bent over backwards to provide exceptional care for my pet. I can't say enough about the attention they gave us. I would definitely recommend Angel Animal Hospital to anyone with a pet.
