Meet Our Veterinarians

Our veterinarian, Dr. McAllister attended the University of Georgia for his undergraduate and veterinary degrees, with a concentration on small animal medicine and surgery.

He spent his life growing up around small animals when he worked at his father’s small animal practice, which lead him to pursue veterinary medicine as a career.

How He Came On-Board With All Aboard Animal Hospital

After his education, he returned to Maryland where he practiced in his father’s small animal clinic for three years. He then moved to Sarasota, FL in 2002, and then Florida’s East Coast in 2005.

He worked for All Aboard Animal Hospital for a little over a year before he purchased the practice in March 2007.

Dr. Kaplin

Associate Veterinarian

I grew up near Buffalo, New York around many animals, large and small. From a very young age, I felt a deep connection to animals and knew my path was to become a veterinarian one day. I started volunteering at a small animal hospital when I was 13, and my passion to help animals and pursue a career in veterinary medicine continued to grow. I attended the University of Miami for my undergraduate degree in Biology and graduated with a degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada. My love for Florida influenced me to return to practice in this area. My goal as a veterinarian, is to establish and maintain a trusting and compassionate relationship with both my patients and their people, and to provide the best care possible. Some of my professional interests include preventative medicine, dentistry and surgery. In my free time, I enjoy painting, horseback riding, going to the beach, and spending time with my dog, Leia, and my three cats, Simon, Jerry and Baloo. I am excited to meet you and your pet as a new associate veterinarian at All Aboard Animal Hospital!
