I love Town and Country animal hospital 💖 I've been taking my cats there for many, many years even when I lived in another county. I'm grateful to Dr. Shaffer for recently diagnosing my older cats with thyroid disease. Both cats had lost alot of weight & were throwing up daily. I was very sad thinking they were terminally ill. After the diagnosis, Dr. Shaffer put both elderly cats on thyroid meds. They've gained weight, stopped throwing up & behave like youngsters. Quarterly bloodwork is done at Town & Country to check their thyroid levels & see if the dosage needs adjustment. Also, thanks to Kris (office manager) for her kindness when I was very distraught thinking my cats were terminally ill. No matter how far I may live I will always take my babies to Town and Country 🙂

If you are looking for people who will love your pets and not over charge you for services....this is the place for YOU and your PET.

Been coming to this place since the day I got my dog. They have a great staff and are always eager to help. The setup is very clean, both owner and pet friendly. The boarding services are also very helpful if you're in need of housing your best friend for a few days. No appointment, no problem, they also accept walk-ins! If you're looking for a good vet, that treats your pet like theirs, then you've found the place.

We tried quite a few vets before we found Town & Country. Reed Hall has hired a staff of animal lovers from top to bottom. I've never met such awesome animal people. My dog actually likes going there! They show great compassion and provide great care. I can't say enough good about T&C - in fact I just told a neighbor today that he needs to take his new puppy there.

  • Not trustworthy to care for animals properly

After several years of using the services of Town &and Country Animal Hospital, 13475 SW 136th St, Miami, we took our Bichon for routine dental and to have a wart removed from each hind foot. When we picked her up she had severe pain when her right side was touched. About 5 days later a larger blister broke behind her front leg and within days spread to her hind leg. When we took her back it was discovered that she had been burned badly. Although she recovered from the wart surgery in a week, the treatment for the burn lasted for over six weeks. She required antibiotic for 4 weeks and was forced to wear a collar 24/7 for almost seven weeks to prevent licking or chewing. She was a miserable little dog for a very long time due to the negligence of the staff attending her that day. We were told that the device to warm the animals during surgery and in recovery is not meant to touch the skin. Their lack of supervision resulted in this horrible and disfiguring wound on our dog. It does not appear that she will ever have hair over this scar.

The vet and the nurse that were responsible for our dog that day were Dr. Catalina Kesseru and Alejandro.

We were appalled that our trust was so violated and that our dog was so mishandled. Although a wonderful vet, Dr. Lori Wendland who treated the wound was as caring and compassionate as one could ever hope to experience, neither Dr. Kesseru or Alejandro ever spoke to us about how this happened, nor did Dr. Mordaunt, the principal of the clinic, ever bother to inquire as to how the dog was doing or to offer any kind of an apology.

Our Roscoe has been coming here since he was adopted in 2016 and I honestly couldn’t think of one negative comment if I tried! From last minute appointments to emergency walk-ins, they have treated us with the upmost respect and given us the best care possible. They are some of the most caring individuals I have ever met & trust them wholeheartedly.

Note: We drive all the way from North Miami to TCAH. That in itself should tell you something. If you’re reading this review & looking for a new doctor’s office for your fur baby then I promise you’ll be making the best decision ever by choosing TCAH.

We drive from Miami Lakes to Town & Country because we appreciate the quality of care, time, and attention we receive from the entire staff there. Dr. Childs is a godsend; she helped us through a very difficult time when we lost our six year old cat to cancer earlier this year, and we are taking the rest of our cats to her for checkups and evaluation. We trust her implicitly, and her willingness to take the time to explain things in detail means the world. The rest of the staff is equally as stellar. We will take our pets to Town and Country whenever possible, cannot recommend this facility enough.

Customer Testimonials

We have been with TCAH for 35 years, 8 pets ago. Through all the years we have been shown nothing but the utmost in care, compassion and just overall kindness. We just recently lost our beloved BamBam and I felt peace with him going quietly in my arms after hundreds of hugs, a little whimper and he was silent. Dr. Mordaunt and Kris were with me..We miss him badly but will always remember how well he was taken care of in his short life and how humanly he passed. Thank you all.


Luna is home and feeling better. Still have to observe her but she's happy. Thank you to the doctors and staff at Kendal Town & Country Animal Hospital for taking care of my baby. Also they put me on a payment plan for all he treatment. Not one other vet in Miami has ever offered that option.


So I'm happy to share that Laila's recovery is at 80%! Thanks to awesome Vets/Staff at Town & Country Animal Hospital. Her Scratching is down 100% she is back to her normal scratching, her skin is clear to about 80%, and her Paw licking is down to about 50%. They have helped Laila in three weeks after struggling for a year with Banfield with no results! We ended up switching Banfield's mind year thinking maybe it would help. I would never ever recommend any Banfield Hospitals!!! However I'm really liking this change. Town & Country animal has a similar wellness plan as well. I just got her nails cut, not to mention they have grooming too. This place seems to be a total package. Glad we made the move and Laila is too!


My fiancé and I had a big scare we found out that our puppy had contracted a very serious virus. When we noticed the irregularity with her behavior we immediately took her in. The staff and the doctors at TCAH acted swiftly diagnosing her and immediately provided her with medical attention. Our girl was under their care for roughly 5 days. During her stay I was provided with insightful updates on her condition. I can't thank the doctors and the staff enough for without them our little girl would probably not be home today.

The Town and Country Animal Hospital provided us with the best and utmost care possible ensuring the safe return of our pup. With their great kindness and outstanding service they made an extremely difficult situation much easier. Thank you Town and Country Animal Hospital for the loving care you provided and for getting our little one back home to us!


This place gets an A++ in my grade book!

The facility is beautiful. The staff was super friendly and professional. The doctor was extremely gentle and sweet with our beloved pain in the butt dog and was very thorough explaining our dog's issues. She ran tests that nobody had ever taken the time to do before, all to try to understand his issues and the underlying cause of them, as opposed to just treating his symptoms. The whole time she made sure to tell us the approximate costs of everything and the course of action she would take and why. All at reasonable but average prices.

We had him groomed too and they left him perfect. No nicks, cuts, irritation, or bald spots. Plus, he was happy when we picked him up!

Overall, awesome experience! I'm so glad to have found them!


I've been going to Town and Country Animal Hospital for years.I've never seen my dog so happy for a vet visit. The staff is so welcoming and sweet! I drive out of my way to come here but it's totally worth it!


This is the BEST vet I have ever had and I've had many. They are so wonderful with my pets. If you need an appointment, they can usually even get you in the same day you call. All the receptionists are so sweet and friendly. The vets and techs are awesome. I especially recommend Dr Catalina Kesseru. I have moved a lot and therefore have had to find a lot of vets and she is by far the BEST! She is so kind, listens to you and involves you in your pet's care. She is truly amazing. I'm moving to broward soon and will continue to drive all the way down to bring my babies to her. They make you and your pets feel like family. My older pets have had multiple surgeries there and they always take the best care of them. I would highly recommend them to anyone!


I love the whole staff! Their care is always centered around what is best for your pet and not about how much money they bring in.


I love this vet, two of my dogs are seen by them and they are amazing! They helped me when I found a stray dog and she turned out to have heart worms...she is now my big baby and is doing 100% good! Dr. Kessaru is the best as well as the other vets that have seen my dogs. They help you by letting you pay your big bills little by little and they are great when you freak out because your 79 pound dog ripped her stitches out and you think the worse lol, they saw her right away and everything was great!


On August 8th, I unfortunately had to make the desicion to let go of my best friend. From the moment I called TCAH they were kind and compassionate. That attitude did not change with any of the staff members when I walked in later that day with my girl. They immediately tended to her to make her comfortable in her last moments. They comforted me and told me I was making the best desicion for her and allowed me and my family to be there throughout the process.

When they had finished, it was already time to close, but they told me to take my time with her. They did not rush me out or even mention that they needed to go. Today I had to pick up her ashes. Another tough day. Again, the staff was friendly and compassionate. The box with her ashes pays homage to my girl. The mold of her paw print is beautiful and I can't wait to place it in a shadow box with her picture for display. I highly recommend TCAH. I can never thank them enough for easing me through this very difficult process.


Love this place!!! They saved my dog when he ate bofo toad they rushed in to action. They really care about your baby. Extremely affordable! Other places in Miami Over charge big time. Very clean and the staff is wonderful.

If you are moving to a new state or traveling with your pet-especially to other countries (even Canada and the Caribbean)-you will likely need an Interstate or International Health Certificate. To know for sure what is required, Town & Country Animal Hospital recommends contacting the visiting country's consulate or embassy. Additionally, The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is responsible for ensuring that people traveling by air with pets treat them safely and humanely.


Town & Country Animal Hospital provides an array of diagnostic imaging services all designed to ensure fast, safe and accurate diagnosis of any medical condition as well as to assist with certain medical procedures. Radiographs (X-rays) are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical problems. X-rays are useful in examining your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas. An X-ray can spot a fractured bone, detect cancerous tumors, diagnose heartworm disease or locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet's stomach.


The fact is, as animals move into their senior years they demonstrate the same signs of aging as we humans do. And as with humans, they are more susceptible to a number of diseases such as kidney disease, dental disease, liver disease, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and cancer. Many of these diseases can be controlled or prevented if caught early. At Town & Country Animal Hospital we consider a cat to be a senior when it reaches 9-years-old (52 in human years) and dogs at the age of 7-years (49 in human years).


Regular dental care for your pet is about more than simply fresh breath and white teeth. At Town & Country Animal Hospital dental care is an important piece of a preventative care regimen because numerous diseases can either originate or be exacerbated by poor dental hygiene. For example, advanced dental disease can affect other bodily functions such as those in the liver, kidneys, heart and nervous system. The good news is that prevention is easy. Town & Country Animal Hospital offers thorough dental cleanings as well as other veterinary services such as root canals, extractions, crowns, braces to correct bite defects, tartar scaling, gingivitis and periodontal assessment, radiographs (X-rays), and more.


Why rely on a friend or untrained pet sitter to keep your pets while you go on vacation or travel for business? Town & Country Animal Hospital has one of the most comfortable and extensive dog and cat boarding facilities in South Florida, which is available only to our clients' pets. Our boarding facility is climate controlled air conditioning and heating with stainless steel kennels, double-decker cat condominiums, and runs suitable for large dogs that can be doubled in size when necessary. While your dog is outside stretching his or her legs, we sanitize their spaces and provide them with fresh food-Purina EN dry food-water, treats, bedding, litter (for cats), and toys.


Town & Country Animal Hospital is always looking for talented individuals to join our team. You can submit your application or resume by emailing employment@tcahvets.com or by regular mail to Employment Opportunities 13475 SW 136th Street, Miami, FL 33186.


As a responsible pet owner you always manage to give your pets the medical care they deserve, but sometimes due to unexpected circumstances you are sometimes faced with medical expenses that are not within your budget. At Town & Country we believe that quality health care for your pets should not be compromised due to cost. We have developed comprehensive payment options and wellness plans that help you, the responsible pet owner, spread out the costs of your pet's unexpected medical care. Our payment options are available for emergencies, surgeries, dental surgeries, advanced diagnostic services and follow up care and unexpected urgent care.
