Dr. Alphons VandenBrand


Staff Veterinarian - D.V.M.

Dr. Alphons VandenBrand provides a wide variety of specialty surgical services to Northeast Animal Hospital. Surgeries are performed here at Northeast Animal Hospital, with our staff veterinarians providing pre- and post-operative care, in an environment that our patients and their owners are familiar and comfortable with.

Dr. VandenBrand graduated from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands in 1993. He attended the University of Florida in his senior year as part of his rotation, and has been practicing in the Tampa Bay Area since 1994. He enjoys surgery, particularly orthopedics. Dr. VandenBrand is also involved in the annual "Vets for Belize Pets" mission, a free spay/neuter/vaccine clinic for the animals of impoverished plantation workers in Belize. 

Outside the surgery suite, he enjoys working with his hands, doing things such as home improvements, woodworking, and working on his vehicles. He also enjoys outdoor activities such as fishing, skiing, and racing cars. He and his wife enjoy the company of their pets which currently include one dog, two cats, and three horses. They acquired all but one through rescue.
