At Broward Animal Hospital, we provide a variety of general care hospital services for your pet. Our general care services include:
Did you know that the American Human Society estimates that one in every three pets is separated from their family at some point in their life? This makes a permanent form of identification very important! We use the Avid microchip at Broward Animal Hospital.
Radiology for Pets
We use radiology for internal imaging. Radiology is an excellent diagnostic tool.
Spay and Neuter for Your Pets
We recommend spaying and neutering for all pets that are not to be used for breeding. Spaying and neutering has a number of health benefits that make it very valuable. We recommend spaying be completed when a pet is between 5 and 6 months of age, and always before females have entered their first heat cycle.
Spaying and neutering reduces unwanted behaviors including escaping and marking, and can also significantly reduce the risks of health problems. Mammary tumors in females and prostate problems in males are less likely, while ovarian, uterine, and testicular problems are entirely eliminated.
We do not believe in one-size-fits-all vaccinations for pets. Each pet’s vaccination protocol is determined by the lifestyle of the pet. The lifestyle needs may be determined by your pet’s outdoor activity, frequency of travel, and the like. Most pets will receive their initial vaccinations when they are a puppy or kitten and then will receive boosters, as needed, throughout their life.
Some important vaccines include:
- Rabies vaccine and tag, which is required by law
- Canine Influenza
- Bordatella/kennel cough, which is recommended, and in some cases required, for boarding, grooming and dog parks
There are many other vaccinations that may be recommended, depending on your pet’s lifestyle. We are committed to open communication with our clients before making our recommendations.
Our in-house lab enables us to process diagnostic tests quicker than ever before. We have a state-of-the-art blood machine for performing our tests.
