You love your pet. When your pet is sick, you want the best care possible. Dr. Wald and the entire veterinary medical team at Central Broward Animal Hospital provide the best possible care for your pet in a compassionate and loving and stress-reducing environment that is conveniently accessible from Sunrise, Davie and all of Broward County. The entire staff is committed to medical excellence, priding themselves on open communication with all their clients.

Central Broward Animal Hospital is a full-service Plantation animal hospital and wellness center staffed by compassionate and caring individuals. From the latest ultrasound technology to advanced surgical procedures, your pet receives the highest level of care available.

To maintain our high standards, we offer a broad range of veterinary services to our patients. Our focus is on disease prevention and wellness care. Through our preventative care program, your pet receives a comprehensive "nose-to-tail" physical examination in order to establish his or her overall health profile. Sometimes however, despite the best preventive veterinary care, a pet can still fall ill. When that happens, we're here for you.

Internal Medicine

It is frustrating that we cannot simply ask a sick or hurting pet what is wrong. That is why Central Broward Animal Hospital has invested in the latest advanced diagnostic technology. When your pet is not well, we need to find out why. After performing a thorough examination, a series of diagnostic tests is often necessary in order to identify the medical condition.

All the veterinarians at Central Broward Animal Hospital are knowledgeable, with expertise in diagnosing and treating complex internal medicine cases such as kidney, heart, respiratory, gastrointestinal, immune-mediated and endocrine diseases.

Veterinary Orthopedics

It's common for the veterinary team at Central Broward Animal Hospital to see pets with a wide range of ailments or injuries that can be treated with orthopedic care. Whether your pet develops a sudden limp or seems to be experiencing degrees of pain in their legs or back, quality of life may be negatively impacted. It may become more difficult for your companion to play normally, or even perform common activities like climbing stairs. When this is the case, our veterinarians and staff can utilize advanced medical technology combined with prescription medications, nutritional supplements, and special diets to treat orthopedic injuries. For more severe orthopedic issues, we have a board-certified orthopedic surgeon on staff.

Caring For Senior PetsOphthalmology, Neurology & Other Systems

Our Plantation veterinarians are well trained in diseases such as those affecting the eye, nervous system, endocrine system, and other areas. If your pet develops an eye infection, seizures, diabetes, or other medical problems, the doctors at Central Broward Animal Hospital are well versed in these areas and are here to help your pet.

Allergies & Dermatology

If left untreated, allergy-related conditions can fester and become serious health concerns for your pet. Therefore, it is important to be able to identify the first signs and symptoms of allergies and dermatological conditions. These include:

  • Inflamed ears
  • Hotspots
  • Scratching
  • Rubbing (eyes or mouth)
  • Flaking
  • Skin lesions
  • Hair loss
  • Red itchy skin bumps
  • Asthma-like wheezing or respiratory issues

These problems can indicate a serious dermatological or allergic reaction to fleas, pollen, dust and various foods. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important that you bring your pet in to us for an evaluation. If left untreated, these problems can become severe medical problems. At Central Broward Animal Hospital, we take the time to explain your pet's condition, how to prevent future occurrences and the proper method of treatment.

The word cancer strikes fear in all of us; however, with new advances in veterinary medicine many pets are living longer, with a greatly improved quality of life.

Successful cancer treatment often lies in early detection. Yet early detection can be difficult as cancer may not only present itself as a lump on the skin, but may develop internally. If this occurs, a thorough examination with diagnostic tests (x-rays, ultrasound, blood analysis) can often discover the tumor. If left undiagnosed, the disease may not be noticed until clinical symptoms develop.

Treatment also depends on the type and location of the cancer. If possible, surgical removal of the tumor is recommended. Some types of cancer are responsive to chemotherapy, which includes a variety of oral and injectable drugs. Dogs and cats tend to tolerate chemotherapy well, rarely developing side effects.

Central Broward Animal Hospital veterinarians are knowledgeable in this discipline and consult with board certified veterinary oncologists so your pet receives the best care possible.
