If you have a pet that you love but find it difficult to provide your animal companion with the care that it needs, you may want to consider Heroes Veterinary Clinic in Pompano Beach. This blogger took her beloved dog there to treat a skin condition. The veterinarian, Stefanie Goldblatt, was knowledgeable, compassionate, and helpful. She gave me a thorough run-down of what might be causing the problem and was patient when my normally placid dog was skittish with her.
After 24 hours, the dog had gone from a listless pooch with no appetite to a happy, hungry dog who greets his owner at the door with tail wagging. Obviously, this vet's diagnosis was the correct one.
Furthermore, the prices are great. It is almost impossible to walk out of a vet's office with a bill of less than $200 dollars--and frequently more--but this time, the bill, including the medicine, was $91 dollars. This was the most pleasant surprise this blogger has had in a long time.
Most important, the genuine love the staff has for animals is obvious from the moment one walks in the door. The staff is polite and friendly to the humans and gentle with the animals. Owners are asked to sign a statement agreeing never to hit an animal. Heroes also operates a low-cost spay and neuter clinic for animal rescue groups. Anyone who is aware of the large population of homeless cats in the area cannot help but appreciate this.
Because my own dog received excellent care and because the clinic works to help homeless animals, I am giving this clinic a 5-star rating.

P.S., The other veterinarian on staff, Dr. Vaujin, has written a series of articles of concern to dog lovers. If you already have a dog, you may be interested in her articles on doggie day care and dog parks. http://www.heroesspayandneuter.com/articles.pdf
