Oakland Park Animal Hospital Provides Service with Professionalism and Loving Care

Our veterinary clinic is Oaklnd Park Animal Hospital located in Oakland Park, Florida and serves pet owners and their pets in surrounding areas of Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors, Lazy Lake, Lauderdale Lakes, Lauderhill, North Lauderdale, Sunrise, Plantation, Davie, Tamarac Margate, Pompano Beach, Lauderdale By-The-Sea, and Sea Ranch Lakes. The Oakland Park veterinarians at our animal vet clinic, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff and Dr. Gary Glickman have years of experience serving a variety of different pets, ranging from tiny pet mice to immense Great Danes. Because of this wide range of experience, our Oakland Park veterinary hospital can guarantee that your pets, from exotic to traditional, will receive proper treatment for his or her unique needs. When looking for a veterinarian in Oakland Park, you will not find more compassionate service and veterinary skill than Dr. Ratnoff and Dr. Glickman.

Our veterinary hospital would like all of our customers to know about the services we provide for pets. Our services cover a wide range of patient needs including emergency pet surgery, dental emergencies, vaccinations and flea and tick infestations. Vaccinations are an especially important aspect of a pet's health because they work to strengthen a pet's immune system against viruses to improve long-term health.

Our services also include pet grooming and pet boarding. Our pet grooming services involve bathing pets, trimming nails, brushing teeth and other techniques intended to improve hygiene and appearance. Pet boarding is another service our veterinary clinic provides, which offers care and comfortable housing to pets while the owners are away.

Some of the routine surgeries we perform at our animal vet clinic include spaying and neutering. For spay and neuter procedures, our professionals use advanced treatment techniques in order to ensure that pets are comfortable during the procedure. Our emergency pet hospital also provides medicine and special care for pets suffering from digestive problems to help restore their health and diet once again.

For more advanced procedures, such as surgery, our Oakland Park emergency pet hospital uses only the most current technologies to ensure a minimally invasive procedure. These technologies include lasers, X-ray machines, EKG equipment and more. We want to ensure pets and owners feel comfortable coming to our veterinary hospital for special care during these highly advanced procedures.
