It is not about us, it is all about your loved pet at Plantation Pet Health Center (PPHC), a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care to dogs, cats and exotic pets.
We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with local practices when special diagnostic procedures are required. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor boarding kennels with outdoor walking areas.
At Plantation Pet Health Center we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy. Ultimately, any and all decisions regarding your companions are yours too make; however, we feel it is important that we make sure any decision you make is the most informed decision it can be.
