Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine

Dr. Randi Fishkin-Ranade, a native New Yorker, joined our VCA Hollywood family in 2015. Growing up in Stony Brook, NY, she attended undergrad at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. She obtained her doctorate of veterinary medicine from The Atlantic Veterinary College at the University of Prince Edward Island in Charlottetown, Canada then completed a general rotating internship as well as a dual residency in Internal Medicine and Emergency and Critical Care at the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan. Dr. Fishkin, (as she is most commonly known as) earned board certification in both Emergency & Critical Care and Internal Medicine in 2006 and continued to work in Manhattan as a Criticalist until 2012. In 2012, she moved to South Florida for the sunny weather, the ocean and to finally have a backyard!

Dr. Fishkin's journey to practice veterinary medicine was driven strongly by her desire to help pets. Early in her career, while working as a pet emergency room nurse, she was moved by the unconditional nature of pets and was driven to be their advocate.  This commitment to pets is visible in her compassionate care of our patients and the leadership role she holds at VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital.  As Internship Director, Dr. Fishkin supports our practice by sharing her drive for excellent care with the next team of veterinarians.

Dr. Fishkin and her husband Sid are raising two beautiful children, Joshua and Raina as well as a 70 lb "poorly trained" doodle named Rex. All three firmly embrace their wild side, with a passion for play and for chasing lizards, (Rex is the lizard chaser!).
