John Ankenbrandt, DVM

Growing up in Decatur Illinois, Dr. John has always known he was going to be a veterinarian. He spent his childhood begging his parents to let him keep every stray dog and cat he ran across! After finishing high school, he went to the University of Missouri where he earned a bachelor�s degree in biology then graduated from the veterinary school in 1989.
While in veterinary school, he met his wife, Dr. Cheryl Ankenbrandt. They moved to Florida the day after graduation, settling first in Spring Hill which is an hour north of Tampa. In 1999, they sold their practice in Spring Hill and moved to Fort Myers to be closer to family. In December of 2001, they opened Summerlin Animal Hospital. Three years later, the practice was thriving and the size of the clinic had doubled.
In his free time, Dr. John can usually be found on his boat. He enjoys fishing, and spending time with his wife and two children.
