Jack Landess, D.V.M.

Nokomis Veterinary Clinic

405  West Albee Road, Nokomis, Florida 34275


Originally a large animal vet, Dr. Jack changed his focus in 1991 to companion animals, with a special interest in Reptiles, Avian (especially Raptors) and Exotic species, as there were almost no vets handling these type animals back then but there was a real need for it.  Additionally, he found it challenging and fun, as he still does today.

Donating his time and expertise to numerous wildlife centers, Dr. Jack also lectures at centers and annual symposiums to rehabilitators and other veterinarians alike.  Additionally, slide shows, with live specimens of all kinds of critters, are done for school children and summer kids camps.

Dr. Jack worked with the famous Dr. Francis Cipullo at the Appalachian Animal and Exotic Hospital in Gilmer County, Georgia where bears, cougars, reptiles, skunks and various other wildlife were a daily occurrence.

Dr. Jack is State and Federally Licensed to handle Endangered & Migratory Birds and Exotics.
