Meet Our Team

Dr. Jacob Vencil

Dr. Vencil attended the University of Florida, where he was awarded a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science followed by a Doctorate degree in Veterinary Medicine. During his time in Gainesville, Dr. Vencil met his wife, Jennifer. He was also there to celebrate four Gators NCAA Championships. You could say it was a pretty great eight years!

Dr. Vencil and Jennifer (also a veterinarian) returned to the coast of Northeast Florida in 2013 where he worked for three years as veterinarian at a large 24-hour animal ER in Palm Coast. It was an opportunity that provided a tremendous amount of experience with complicated medical and surgical cases and state of the art equipment. Dr. Vencil was recently drawn to practice in Ponte Vedra by the beautiful beaches and fantastic community.

Though he enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, Dr. Vencil takes a special interest in surgery, dermatology and internal medicine. He looks forward to providing excellent care for your pets.

Dr. Vencil and Jennifer have three children. Their four-legged family members include Maggie (Labrador mix), Stitch (Boston Terrier mix), and Reesie (Tortoiseshell cat).

Dr. Raina Pannee

About 17 years ago, Dr. Raina adopted a little puppy she named Delphi, a pivotal moment that altered her life trajectory towards becoming a veterinarian. Delphi’s health struggles led them to frequent visits to the vet hospital, fostering Dr. Raina’s passion for veterinary medicine through the dedicated care she provided.

The profound bond shared with Delphi was a catalyst, shaping Dr. Raina’s commitment to treating her patients with the same level of devotion. Recognizing the significance of the human-animal bond, she strives daily to ensure her patients receive the utmost care, drawing inspiration from her experience with Delphi.

Dr. Raina holds a distinguished 2013 graduation from Oklahoma State University, where she excelled academically. Having practiced in Virginia and West Virginia before settling in Florida, she brings a wealth of diverse veterinary expertise to her role.

When not caring for animals, Dr. Raina cherishes quality time with her family and finds solace in outdoor activities, embracing nature during her leisure hours. Her dedication to her profession resonates within the compassionate team at Sea Oats Animal Hospital, where their collective passion for patient care and client support mirrors her own values.
