About Our Family-Owned Plantation Animal Hospital

Our Special Animal Hospital


A Message From Our Founder
My dream since childhood was to open an animal hospital that would be a special place where people could go with their pets to get the very best loving care. I have fulfilled that dream at Central Broward Animal Hospital and would like you and your pet to come visit us.
Our multiple award-winning hospital has been open for over 27 years, and our outstanding doctors, stress-reducing environment, and friendly staff are what we are all about. We love what we do and it shows. Our staff is comprised of the best and most caring people whose only interest is to provide your pet with the very best medical care.
And one of the most important things is that we offer all this with reasonable prices that most everyone can afford!
I invite you to come visit our multiple award-winning hospital and see how special we are. I know you will be thrilled. Please come meet our staff, including our golden retriever greeters Shea and Chase, and tour our pet care facility so that we may warmly welcome you and your pet into our family.
We are always striving to be the best!

Our History
In 1987, Central Broward Animal Hospital opened its doors in the Plantation Shopping Center. At that time, there was Dr. Wald, two veterinary staff members and a mission to provide compassionate veterinary medical care of the finest quality for pets in the Plantation and greater Fort Lauderdale area.
Thanks to an enthusiastic, loyal and growing community of clients, our family-oriented animal hospital grew into the state-of-the-art, award-winning, free-standing medical and surgical pet care facility we are today. Though we have grown, our team philosophy remains the same: we treat every patient and owner just like family. We are always working to do what is in the best interest of each pet and owner.

At Central Broward Animal Hospital our goal is to make going to the veterinarian enjoyable!
