Welcome! Thank you for choosing Marano Animal Hospital for your pet’s care. MAH is a full-service family owned and run medical facility that focuses on small animal pets located in the Venice/Sarasota, Florida area. At Marano Animal Hospital, our philosophy is simple… to provide the highest quality personalized veterinary care by ensuring that every family receives the most advanced medical treatment, exceptional customer care, and possibly most importantly the love and compassion you would expect from your own family. That is why all of our team members have been hand selected and undergone extensive training to ensure that they embody MAH’s core values and beliefs.
Every dream has a beginning and in order to understand the origin of Marano Animal Hospital you have to get to know the owner and veterinarian Dr. Jason Marano.
Dr. Marano has been passionate about animals since he was a young child and decided in high school that he wanted to dedicate his life to their care and well-being. He believes that the most influential force in his life leading him down this path was his mother, who was also his best friend. Dr. Marano’s mother (known to everyone as Ma) was an avid animal lover and enthusiast who appreciated the innocence and unconditional love that our pets provide daily. It was their life dream to open a family run veterinary hospital that would work to ensure the well-being of these very special rays of light. Unfortunately Dr. Marano’s mother has since passed from cancer, but he has vowed to continue to pursue their dream with the opening of Marano Animal Hospital. The hospital is family run, with his father as practice manager and his wife as assistant manager and greeter. The hospital is dedicated to his mother’s memory and the initials “MAH” will serve as a reminder of her presence as “MA’s Hospital!”
