Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art veterinary medicine and surgery for the pets of South Florida. We strive to do this with an emphasis on compassion, and on recognizing and honoring the deep bond that exists between our clients and their companion animals.
South Federal Animal Hospital has been in the same location since 1969. Our founder, Dr. Joe Kashner, is now retired, and his partner of 26 years, Dr. Al Meilan, is the Hospital Director. Throughout these years, we have been fortunate to know many wonderful people, and our memories of unforgettable and extraordinary pets are bountiful.
Our hospital is very proud of our status as an accredited member hospital of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This prestigious accomplishment is achieved by submitting to thorough periodic inspections of all the different aspects of a veterinary office, including medical records, surgery, anesthesia, radiology, and hospital husbandry. Less than 15% of all animal hospitals in the United States can claim this honor, and it is a clear indication of quality and high standards in our profession.
At South Federal Animal Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
Alberto L. Meilan, D.V.M., Robin Stelljes, D.V.M., and Beatriz Perez, D.V.M.
