Farewell From
Dr. St John

To my Dear Clients,

After a long and hard consideration, I have decided to retire from practicing veterinary medicine. Know that I do so with mixed emotions. While I am very excited to explore the next chapter in my life, I am also very sad to be saying goodbye. My last day will be in about six months

I will be leaving you in the capable and caring hands of Dr.Arendondo, the new owner of Belcher Animal Hospital, technicians, and receptionists. Between now and my retirement date, I will be happy to assist you in making this transition as easy as possible. 

It has been an honor and a pleasure to be a part of your lives for all these years. I wish your families, two- and four-legged members, all the best in health and happiness. My relationships with all my clients, patients, and co-workers are what have made this profession so special to me. I appreciate your loyalty throughout the years, and the memories of all that I have experienced over these past four decades will always be with me.


Ken St.John, D.V.M

Greetings From
Dr. Jamie Arredondo


Hi, I am Doctor Jamie Arredondo and I am the new owner of Belcher Animal Hospital. I am tremendously excited to meet everyone.  I am a Chicago area native and have been living in the St. Petersburg area for the last 8 years.  

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend St. George’s School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of Grenada.  I then completed my clinical year at NC State College of veterinary medicine and graduated Magna cum Laude in 2015.

I have an interest in working with all animals excluding poisonous creatures.  I welcome seeing your dogs, cats, small farm animals and exotics pets.  

 I am focused on partnering with you in your pets care. I find it extremely important to thoroughly discuss preventative care recommendations as well as disease processes and test results.  

 I have a small zoo of my own consisting of dogs, cats, red footed tortoises, ducks and aquatic pets.  I spend my free time being a mom to 3 young children and trying with my husband to entertain them.
