OAKLAND PARK, Fla., July 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- July 30 is a day of celebration for Oakland Park Animal Hospital as the hospital marks 30 years of veterinary service to South Florida's Fort Lauderdale area. Veterinarian and hospital owner, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff, will celebrate with his staff by taking care of creatures ranging from pocket pets, such as hamsters and lizards, to cats and dogs of all sizes.
Oakland Park Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital that provides comprehensive medical care from wellness exams and vaccinations to scheduled and emergency surgeries. After hours, it handles urgent and emergency care at its Animal Emergency Trauma Center housed in the same building.
Over the years, Dr. Ratnoff has constantly updated service techniques. Oakland Park Animal Hospital offers the latest technology and modes of treatment; minimizing discomfort and insuring the least invasive procedures possible for pets. The clinic has equipment for up-to-date EKG heart monitoring, diagnostic lab work, radiographic services to check for orthopedic problems and cold laser therapy to manage pain.
To help owners keep pets healthy, the clinic's services also include treatment for dental, skin and prevention of pregnancy through spay and neuter procedures. They also offer preventative care and treatment for parasites such as fleas, ticks and intestinal bugs, protecting pets from the diseases and discomfort they may transmit. The clinic performs ID microchipping to protect cats and dogs that may stray and end up in animal shelters.
"Microchipping is quick, painless and saves lives," Dr. Ratnoff explains, "because it helps shelters avoid euthanizing unidentified, unadopted animals."
Dr. Ratnoff and his wife, Laurie, a veterinary technician, maintain a large pet family at home, which includes birds, Bearded Dragons, cats, dogs and hamsters.
"Pets we treat at Oakland Park Animal Hospital are like members of our family," Dr. Ratnoff says. "For the past 30 years, our focus has been on giving them the best of care and educating clients about how to keep their pets as healthy and happy as possible."
Dr. Spencer Ratnoff and all his caring staff, Kelly his Office Manager/Groomer, Vicki the Lead Animal Technician, Christina Receptionist/ Animal Handler, and Tiffany Kennel/Technician help serve the communities of Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors, Lazy Lake, Lauderdale Lakes, Lauderhill, North Lauderdale, Sunrise, Plantation, Davie, Tamarac Margate, Pompano Beach, Lauderdale By-The-Sea and Sea Ranch Lakes.
