what makes us different

Our Approach to Veterinary Care in Cape Canaveral, FL

As a new client of Ocean Animal Hospital you can expect our full attention to your pet’s needs. When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted warmly, and we’ll invite you into an examination room after checking in your pet. In most cases, one of our veterinary technicians will start by asking about your pet’s medical history, current condition and the reason for your visit, gathering data for the doctor. Dr. Young will then examine your pet, ask you further questions and may recommend diagnostic tests if needed. Once the tests have been run, which can usually be done in the practice, Dr. Young will discuss a possible diagnosis and treatment plan if warranted.

This is a great time to ask questions. Our veterinary team wants to make sure you’re completely comfortable with the information we’re providing. Our veterinary technician will likely come back to wrap things up and will provide you with helpful pet care information and answer any wellness and care questions you may have. Our front desk staff will process your payment and schedule any needed follow-up appointments.

Please note: Our goal is to see all our clients and patients on time, and although we have contingencies for emergencies, there will be times where the unexpected will create delays. We will ensure these are minimized as much as possible. We are excited to meet you and your pets!

Meet Dr. Gabriel Young

Dr. Young is a native Floridian. He completed his undergraduate studies at The Honors College of Florida Atlantic University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Biology. After graduating from college, Dr. Young attended veterinary school in New Zealand.

He completed his veterinary degree in 2008, and has since worked as a small animal veterinary surgeon in Maui, Colorado, New Zealand, Australia, Bahrain, and Qatar. He has also done extensive veterinary volunteer work in The Cook Islands, Samoa, and Fiji.

Dr. Young has a strong interest in surgery, but thoroughly enjoys a challenging medical case. It’s his goal to provide high quality high touch care to each and every animal that needs a veterinarian in Cape Canaveral, FL.

In September 2016 he welcomed his first child, Layla, to the world (his second child was born in February 2019). Dr. Young is an avid surfer, likes playing the drums, is fond of traveling to new destinations, and enjoys quality time with his family. He is very happy to be back in his native state, and is excited to meet our clients and their beloved pets!

I highly recommend Oceans Animal Hospital. My experience was top notch from start to finish. The staff was kind and helpful and the doctor went above and beyond. They explain everything thoroughly, document the procedure nicely and follow up with care. They even called to remind me about starting Ziggy's medications. Great group of professionals!
