Under the umbrella of Pet Medical Centers, nine Miami-Dade and Broward-area veterinary hospitals provide sophisticated healthcare for furry, feathered, and scaly family members. The hospitals’ specialty services include nonanesthetic dental care, ultrasounds, radiology, and endoscopies. All locations boast surgical operating rooms equipped with windows and cameras to give owners peace of mind, and many of the clinics are equipped with lasers for blade-free incisions. Besides emergency care, the doctors and technicians—some of whom have appeared as specialists on Univision and Animal Planet—perform general wellness examinations and informative nutritional consultations.
Although medical care provides what pets need, boarding services treat pets to what they want. Most locations double as cat and dog hotels, but only one deserves the title of pet resort—at Coral Springs Pet Resort and Medical Center, animals enjoy a climate-controlled dog park with a pool, baths with massaging jets, and expansive canine suites with window views.
Knowing the oft-contentious relationship between dogs and cats, Lakeside Animal Hospital keeps entirely separate entrances, lobbies, and exam rooms for felines and canines. It’s one way the animal hospital’s staff shows its deep understanding and passion for four-legged guests. Dr. Monica Fernandez’s team of veterinarians and staff treat animals with a roster of wellness services. These services include laser therapy to reduce pain and accelerate healing time from injury and surgery, as well as ultrasounds to detect whether a pup is pregnant or if it just swallowed the remote control. The hospital staff also keeps pets safe with boarding services, and can help them look their best with expert grooming sessions.
Completed in 2002, Miami Animal Hospital is a 4000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility, equipped with the most advanced technology to provide your pet with the best veterinary care. We are open Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturdays 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Two experienced veterinarians lead the staff at Scarbrough Animal Hospital. The team fills the hospital with the cheery barks of pups, baritone purring of cats, and falsetto squeaks of balloon animals during grooming services, including bathing and nail clipping. Beneath collages of fuzzy past patients, veterinary and dental care ensures that critters stay beautiful on the inside and can help ward off future illnesses, weight issues, and problem behaviors. Boarding services provide a venue to compose concertos for squeaky toys and coddle pets during their owners' vacations.
Trail Animal Hospital's luxurious facilities cater to pets' excitable whims with veterinary vacations that provide exercise, play, and pampering spa services. Tempered glass fronts keep doggy suites well-lit and airy, and three-story cat condos keep curious kitties entertained with a high-rise view of the facility's electronic fish tank and hourly dolphin shows. Bowlfuls of each animal's favorite food arrive twice daily, served precisely according to the owner's instructions, and a dedicated walker spins four-legged pals ’round the block at least three times a day. The dulcet tones of slow-moving music relax animal eardrums as furry friends settle into their raised beds or plush piles of blankets for an evening's rest, where midnight snacking urges are smartly satisfied with a Kong-like toy. Climate controls regulate temperature throughout the entire facility, protecting dogs and cats from summer heat and keeping them warm all through Miami’s blizzard season.
Animal care is a family affair at Hometown Animal Hospital. Dr. Jan Bellows, a Florida Veterinary Medical Association Gold Star–recipient with more than 35 years experience, leads a team of practitioners and assistants which includes his son, Dr. David Bellows. Together, they keep their four-legged patients healthy through annual checkups and wellness exams, and help them recover from illness or injury through medicinal and surgical treatments. Their expertise is not just limited to dogs and cats, however, as they also aid exotic pets including hedgehogs, mice, chinchillas, and snakes.
Their services also go beyond veterinarian treatments at their bed-and-breakfast-style boarding facility. Here, staff members pamper each furry guest during overnight stays with personalized care—feeding them their favorite food, scratching their favorite spots, and letting them stay up past their bedtime, just this once.
Inside their 4,500-square-foot facility, Animal Medical Center's staff strives to treat furry friends with the same care and love showered on them by their owners. Using ultrasound, therapeutic laser therapy, and optional holistic medicine, a team of compassionate vets works to keep pets hale and healthy. Meanwhile, full-time staff members with years of experience like Scotty, who grooms on Mondays and Tuesdays, take care of grooming side. Their pharmacy makes things easy for owners, who can opt to pick up their pets' meds on site or have them mailed. In addition, an emergency care clinic provides urgent help at all hours, and a groomer bathes and beautifies healthy cats and dogs.
