Janette Blanco, Practice Manager

Janette Blanco is an animal lover who has been working in and around the veterinary field since the age of 14. She has a Degree in pre-veterinary medicine and she is a Certified Veterinary Assistant (CVA).

Her passion for all animals led her to volunteer for non-profit rescues, where she loved to adopt relinquished geriatric pets so they could live out their days in her home. Janette brings a wealth of experience to UrgentVet, including 6 years in a general practice setting and 5 years in emergency veterinary medicine. Throughout her career in pet medicine, she’s had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of animals. She’s done everything from rehabilitating horses and livestock, to nursing opossums and raccoons to microchipping snakes.

When she’s not on the job providing care for animals, you can find her at home relaxing with her two kitties or outside enjoying nature — at the beach, on a nature trail, in a kayak or on a paddleboard.

Dr. Megan Joyce DVM

Dr. Megan Joyce graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in 2011 where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, with a minor in Spanish Studies. She then worked for the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Naples, FL as an education specialist before realizing her dream of becoming a veterinarian. Dr. Joyce graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 2019.

She recently moved to the Lakewood Ranch-Bradenton area to join the UrgentVet team and looks forward to helping your pets! When she’s not practicing veterinary medicine, you can find her at the beach, practicing yoga or volunteering in the community.

Happy Pet Parents

“This place is great. My dog came in with a rash on his neck and was barking up a storm coming in the door. They got us in a room to calm him down and won his trust very quickly. We were treated with care and professionalism and they got us in and out very quickly. Perfect suppliment to our primary vet!”

“There was no wait at all. They were patient and took their time calming our cat down. Somehow won her over cause she is definitely not a people cat beyond us. Figured out what the problem was gave her the medication she needed and now she is as good as new. They’re prices was very reasonable. We’ll definitely go there if we are ever in need of their services.”
