Our Preventative Care

Prevention is the key to reducing the prevalence of serious health concerns in your pet in the future. In fact, it could ward off serious health problems that could cause your pet pain and suffering for a short or long time or even lead to the worst-case scenario.

With preventative care, we inform you of ways you can better take care of your pet to reduce his or her risk of certain diseases. For instance, your pet may be losing weight. On the other hand, we can perform diagnostics to detect problems early and intervene before they become problematic.

Part of our preventative care also includes vaccinations, which can protect your pet from serious illnesses. We'll help you start your pet's schedule and stay on track.

Our Sick and Injury Care

We're there for your pet when he or she is feeling under the weather, and you just want to make him or her comfortable. We perform the necessary diagnostics, listen to his or her problems, and accurately diagnose the condition. The next step is giving your pet the best treatment for the situation.

We can also help when your pet is injured. We'll perform the necessary diagnostics and then administer the proper treatments.

Our Difference

You'll see just how much we like pets when you walk through our doors. Our veterinarian and every member of our team have a passion for pets and keeping them healthy. You'll see just how much we go the distance once you visit our office.

We understand a visit to the vet can be stressful for you and your pet. That's why we strive to make it as easy for both of you as possible. We'll answer your questions and will work to keep your pooch or feline calm during the process, even if that means providing him or her with a medication to keep him or her calm.

At Animal Hospital of Hallandale, serving Hallandale, FL, and the nearby region, we're truly there in sickness and in health. And we're in it for the long haul. We encourage our families to become our lifelong patients.
