Dr. James Davis
Owner and Veterinarian

Dr. Davis graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 and completed his final year of clinical training at The University of Georgia. His interests include ultrasonography, orthopedic surgery, dermatology and urology. 

As an undergraduate student in biology, Dr. Davis worked for 2 years as an assistant in the animal medical sciences. This experience, combined with his love for animals, led him to choose a path to becoming a veterinarian.

“We have the best job in the world," Dr. Davis says. "Diagnosing and treating medical conditions in pets can be challenging and rewarding, but preventing disease through early diagnostics and client education is far more rewarding.” 

Dr. Davis strongly believes in the importance of community service. By playing an active role with local programs, he hopes to impact the community by always giving back. 

His family includes his wife Susie, daughters Ann and Helen, 2 cats “Poof” and “Kittyboo” and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named “Snickers”. His hobbies include cycling, hiking, and fishing.

– Kristen Wagner

“I've seen all of the physicians with my 2 German Shepherds and rescue kitty and they're all amazing! Routine visits to emergency visits always leave us feeling cared for. We moved to the area from CT about 2 years ago and called the Jupiter PD to see who they used (since we have intact male shepherds, we felt most comfortable using a practice that cares for the K9 dogs!) and were referred to Harmony. Very happy with the level of care, responsiveness, low wait times, and follow up. Highly recommended!”
– Angela Valencis

“I'm very pleased with Harmony Animal Hospital. We have been going there for one year. They are prompt, thorough, and reasonable about my decisions for my dog. They make recommendations, but I don't feel pressured into a bunch of unnecessary treatments. It's a good balance of educating me about what needs to be done and yet letting me make the choice.”
– S Abitz

“This place is amazing hands down. They made me feel like I was the only client there and the place was packed. It's hard enough finding an exotics vet then trying to find one that knows what they are doing is even harder. To all the exotic owners in Jupiter, Dr. Johnston at Harmony AH is my new go-to!”
– Traci Willard

“Best veterinarians for your fur babies. They also have an exotic pet vet here named Dr Johnson and she's fantastic. We used her a few times for our 3-year old rabbit. All of our other pets have gone to see Dr. Cline. He is as good with animals as he is with people which is fantastic. The staff here are always kind, informed, patient, and take their time with each visit. You will never feel rushed and they make you feel like family. When our 11 year old Boston Terrier passed away last year they even sent us a card expressing their sadness for our loss. They also have a beautiful boarding facility for a few dogs and a separate facility for cats. Please do not hesitate to make this your new destination for your pet health needs.”
