We are a full service animal hospital and will take both emergency cases as well as less urgent medical, surgical, and dental issues. Dr. C. Tom Rainey and Dr. Michael Pegelow are experienced in all types of conditions and treatments. Beyond first rate pet care, we make our clinic comfortable, kid-friendly, and a very calm environment so your pet can relax in the waiting room and look forward to meeting his or her own Miami veterinarian.

Our focus is to partner with you to ensure that your pet has the best preventative health care possible. While vaccines are an integral part of your petís preventative health care plan, we recommend that you consider other important steps to keep your pet healthy. The rest of your petís plan should include annual or semi-annual examinations, proper nutrition, obedience and behavioral training and preventative care testing. These things, along with recommended vaccinations will help to keep your pet happy and healthy for many years.

The doctors and staff at Dixie Animal Hospital have been wonderful since day one. We've brought our dog to Dr. Pegelow for everything, and we have been very happy with the level of service and care that he and the staff Dixie Animal Hospital have provided! Dr. Pegelow always takes the time to answer all our questions, and always calls after an appointment to follow up on our dog. Highly recommend.
