VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital

AAHA accredited for over 50 years, VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital started as a small family run hospital in 1947 but has grown quite a bit to accommodate the growing pet community. This ever growing animal hospital strives to offer clients the best state of the art technology and specialty veterinary care that the county has available. Our staff members are dedicated to the care of animals and they are willing to do whatever is necessary to make a client comfortable with the quality of care their pet will receive while they are here.

We at VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital want our clients and staff members to know it is our priority to provide the finest Veterinary care to our patients and it is our goal to assure that their owners are well informed and comfortable with the decisions made regarding their pets care.

Since 1950, we have been an AAHA accredited veterinary hospital. That means that we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion, keeping them healthy is our #1 priority. Your pet deserves nothing less.

Our History
The Hollywood Animal Hospital was originally built in 1947 by Dr. C.E. Dee and Dr. I.C. Frederickson on what was then the western edge of the City of Hollywood. The announcement of their practice at 2864 Hollywood Boulevard was sent to the community on November 1, 1947. The phone numbers at that time were Hollywood #1253, Ft. Lauderdale #862 and Miami # 7-7727.

In 1978, VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital completed the construction of our current medical facility and in 1996, opened the Outpatient Clinic, which is also referred to as the Annex, located next to the hospital.

Since its inception, the HAH (as it is commonly referred to) has grown to include a staff of 22 doctors and more than 100 technical and support staff. These individuals have been selected, not only for their compassion and communication skills, but also for their appreciation of the special roles that pets play in our lives. In addition, a lifelong commitment to continuing education is an integral part of the philosophy of our medical staff.

Determined to provide the finest veterinary care, in 1950 we became a Certified Member Hospital of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This voluntary veterinary organization sets high standards which member hospitals are required to maintain and continually upgrade. There are only 3,200 veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada which have been awarded accreditation as an AAHA Member Hospital.
