plantation veterinary clientsStress-Reducing Environment For You

At Central Broward Animal Hospital we strive to make visiting us as stress-free as possible for pets and pet owners alike. We've made this possible with affordable fees, a family-oriented atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and Plantation veterinarians that listen to you and consider your pet's unique needs. In addition, our minimal appointment wait times and complete complimentary courtesy bar with refreshments and snacks help reduce any anxiety you may otherwise experience.

Drop Off Service

Central Broward Animal Hospital clients may drop their pets off at no additional cost and/or pick them up at other times - such as at lunch or on the way home from work - instead of scheduling an exam room appointment. We are also more than happy to assist clients in carrying heavy bags of food or transporting pets to vehicles if needed.

Pet Link Microchip

All too often a pet that has run off fails to return home. This is a terrible, frightening situation. We have all seen the sad lost pet notices posted on Facebook and throughout our neighborhoods. Getting lost is more than an inconvenience, too: it's the number one cause of pet death.

Studies have shown more than 10 million pets are lost each year and about 90% would not be returned to their owner without some form of permanent lost pet identification. This is why the team at Central Broward Animal Hospital views microchip lost pet IDs as a standard of protection for your pet. With a microchip, your pet can be identified quickly and easily by animal control officers, shelters or at veterinary hospitals. Microchips are safe, unalterable and permanent identification for pets. The entire implant procedure takes less than 10 seconds.

We use the Pet Link microchip system. The Pet Link ID system uses microchips that register the animal with a unique identification number that is filed in a database with important contact information. This information can be updated at any time. The technology is standardized around the world, so your pet's microchip can be read at shelters in a number of countries.

Pet Link membership also offers benefits such as proactive pet recovery and free access to ASPCA Poison Control. Pet Link comes with a number of services useful to pet owners, such as their National Pet Recovery Database, Lost Pet Specialists, Rapid Lost Pet Alerts, Lost Pet Medical Insurance, Travel Assistance for Found Pets, and more.

plantation pet nutritional counselingNutritional Counseling

Central Broward Animal Hospital offers prescription diets and nutritional counseling for your pets. Why is this important? Pets are living longer, healthier lives than ever before, largely due to our expanded knowledge regarding the importance of proper nutrition to overall health. Nutrition is the biggest health variable controlled by a pet's caregiver.

During your pet's comprehensive physical examination, we evaluate his or her body condition and give recommendations based on what we see. We offer nutritional counseling appropriate for the life stage of your pet, illness-related diets, weight loss, and allergy-related food concerns.

Some pets have more serious nutritional challenges or chronic conditions that can benefit from a special diet. Pets with liver disease, intestinal problems, bladder and kidney stones, renal failure, food allergies, and diabetes can lead healthier lives on these foods.

For most pets, our recommendations include information on proper serving size and other feeding strategies to maintain optimal body weight and nutritional health. We also help you understand the claims made by pet food producers so you can make the most informed choices.

We carry a diverse inventory of prescription foods. If your pet requires a prescription diet that we do not carry, we may be able to order it for you.

Pharmacy

We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products, and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry prescription diets from Science Diet, Royal Canin, and Purina.

As the prescribing veterinarian for your pet's medications, we ensure the direct link between the exam room and our pharmacy. This means your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form as quickly as possible. We will also guide you on the medication's use and monitoring its effectiveness.

Ensuring you have convenient, timely access to competitively priced medications is an important aspect of our veterinary practice. Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call.

plantation pet behvioral counselingBehavioral Counseling

Behavior problems are the number one reason owners give up a pet. Central Broward Animal Hospital offers behavior counseling for many of your pet's problems, including inappropriate urination or defecation, aggression, separation anxiety, inappropriate chewing and barking, and introduction of new pets into the household.

Our veterinarians will work closely with you to understand the source of these behavior issues and develop a plan to help eliminate your pet's unwanted behavior. Often the behavior problem, such as inappropriate voiding, is linked to a medical issue (such as cystitis, bladder stones, or kidney disease) and can be treated medically. For other issues, the treatment plan often includes behavior modification and sometimes medication-assisted training. If our veterinarians and technical staff members cannot help with your pet's behavior problem, we can refer you to a board-certified animal behavior specialist.

Veterinary Euthanasia

Difficult Choices, Compassionate Answers

Euthanasia and tending to your pet's remains are two of the most difficult issues for many people to consider. Asking the question means confronting fear, guilt, and grief.

Euthanasia methods are designed to cause minimal pain and distress. Talk to a veterinarian or staff member at Central Broward Animal Hospital about pet euthanasia long before it becomes an issue. Find out about your options, make key decisions ahead of time, and ask us to add this information to your pet's record.

Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and discomfort for you and your pet in the event this option ever has to be considered.

All of us at Central Broward Animal Hospital will do our best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.

We also offer cremation services.
