Business not appearing on Maps

One of my customers business (Dr. Norm's Westside Animal Hospital) is not showing up on Google Maps when searching for their main keyword (Veterinarian) in the town they are located (Panama City Beach, FL). Can it be because their Zip (32413) is not listed under Panama City Beach in Googles search? (It should be, since it's a PCB Zip).


When I search without adding Panama City Beach, they show up just fine. Obviously a lot of searches will include PCB, so this is very important to them.


Thanks in advance for any clarifying answers!

I'm at least am bit confused too:


I get "Dr. Norm's Westside Animal Hospital" listed if searching for "Veterinarian near Panama City Beach Fl 32413" .

But I don't get it for "Veterinarian near Panama City Beach Fl.

So it could well be any kind of a ZIP issue for the business - bit I'm not sure.

Thanks for your input!

I believe it could be the simple (but very important) reason, that Google doesn't include the ZIP 32413 as being part of Panama City Beach, FL. This is obviously a very crucial issue to my customer, since most searches won't be conducted on ZIP level. Do you know of any way to flag this issue with Google?
