To our valued patients and clients:
Please be advised that in order to safely care for pets and their families, we will be offering curbside triage service for all emergencies. If you are experiencing an emergency, please come to the hospital or give us a call and a team member will walk you through the process. This change will limit the heavy flow of traffic through the hospital, and allow our team to continue to provide the best 24/7 care for our community.
We appreciate your patience, as we will likely be experiencing an increased number of calls due to these changes. We will continue to provide updates on this page to help with the transition. If your pet has an upcoming scheduled procedure or appointment, a team member will reach out to you in a timely manner.
Thank you for entrusting us with your pet's care.
Our 24-hour pet hospital is located in Fort Lauderdale and serves surrounding Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.
When you have a pet emergency, seconds count. We want you to know, we’re ready. If your pet has a condition that requires a specialist’s expertise, we’re ready for that too. Our experienced team of veterinarians, vet technicians and support staff work closely together to provide the comprehensive, compassionate care your pet needs and deserves.
Our 24-hour pet hospital is open every day of the year, with an ER veterinarian and support team on-site at all times to deal with emergencies.
Dr. Ira M. Zaslow opened the hospital in 2011 and built a team of board-certified veterinary specialists.
The hospital has advanced equipment such as a CT scanner and is fully equipped to meet the emergency and specialty needs of pet owners in Fort Lauderdale and surrounding South Florida communities. We are proud to be one of the few veterinary clinics offering physical therapy to improve the well-being of your pets.
