Dr. Patrick Barry, DVM: Owner of Barry Veterinary Hospital since 1987

Dr. Barry grew up in south Louisiana and received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Microbiology from LSU in 1978 and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1984.  He chose veterinary medicine because he liked animals, had a strong love for science, and enjoyed working with people.  What a great way to combine all three.

Dr. Barry moved to Florida and opened his veterinary practice in 1987.  He and his wife have three sons, one in high school and two in graduate school.  The family also has two dogs, one yellow lab "Cate" and one small pound puppy "Mia".  Dr. Barry's interests include fishing, aquariums, and live music.

Dr. Barry is most proud of his ability to establish and maintain a busy small animal veterinary hospital while balancing a wonderful and healthy family life.




Dr. Jami Swift, DVM

Dr. Swift did her undergraduate studies at Auburn University and attended Veterinary School at LSU (she likes Tigers).  She started work at Barry Veterinary Hospital within a few weeks of obtaining her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from LSU in 2002.  She chose veterinary medicine because of the stimulating day to day challenges and of course, her love for animals.

Dr. Swift and her husband are the proud parents of two beautiful human children, a dog named Roux who is a couch potato and an avid Mardi Gras Parade attendee, and a flock of backyard chickens.  Dr. Swift and her family enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible.




Dr. Stacey Wiggins became part of the Barry Veterinary Hospital family after graduation from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009.  Knowledgable, caring, and companssionate, Dr. Wiggins quickly gained the trust and respect of both clients and staff.  She and her husband share their home with two cats and a border collie mix.
