Fort Myers Mobile VeterinarianDr. JL Shewmaker III, DVM

Dr. JL is the owner of Affordable Mobile Pet Vet. A native of Alva, Florida and the son of a mixed-animal practice veterinarian, Dr. JL started his practice in 2012. He is a member of the Florida Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. JL's professional interests include general wellness, dentistry, and blood work.

After graduating from high school, Dr. JL attended the University of Florida, earning his Bachelor's of Science in 2005. He earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2012.

"Growing up I always loved riding and helping my father work with horses," says Dr. JL. "I really enjoy helping owners to getting their horses back in riding condition." Dr. JL also references the famous Winston Churchill quote: "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of the man."

Affordable Mobile Pet Vet began as a farm-focused veterinary practice, Dr. JL quickly found there was considerable demand for a mobile veterinarian equipped to treat dogs and cats. "I started the practice to provide veterinary care to horses, cows and the occasional goat," he says. "I have since expanded my services to provide home wellness care to dogs and cats. This service relieves owner and their pets of the stress of going to a veterinary office. We also have the ability to save pet owners money by providing free house calls and wellness examinations."

Dr. JL has two dogs: Winnie, a dachshund mix, and Bella, a Chihuahua. In his free time he enjoys traveling and snowboarding.
