Products & Services

Internal Medicine

Dr. Degen, Village Animal Clinic's Chief of Medicine, is a Board Certified Internal Medicine Specialist and expert in ultrasound, endoscopy and cancer medicine. With endoscopy, she can examine and get samples of the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory system and urogenital tract all without surgery. Dr. Degen accepts patients through referral cases from veterinarians throughout Florida.

Surgical Procedures

Our on-site laboratory lets us to run complete panels, including blood, urine and parasite, while you wait.

Village Animal Clinic provides all kinds of elective and emergency surgery. Our Chief Surgeon, Dr. Linda Wilson, performs surgery on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday each week. Our surgical suite is equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and anesthesia for safer sedation and a quicker recovery period.

Dental Procedures

Dental disease is the most usual illness encountered in veterinary medicine today and affects 9 out of 10 pets. Unfortunately, it is also the most under treated disease. Pets often go for years with painful gingivitis or even severe tooth root abscesses without noticeable clinical signs to the owner.

Dental disease puts tremendous demands on your pet's organs, weakening the liver, kidney and heart. This additional stress can affect your pet's happiness and shorten life expectancy.

What a wonderful experience I had with my new cat at VAC. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful from the minute I made the appointment on the phone through the entire visit, follow up and picking up his medicines. Clean environment - very comfortable for the pets - not sterile and cold like some others. Junior and Dr. Jennifer were exceptional with their attention to us, explaining everything I asked. I was truly impressed with the entire staff and experience. Thank you so much!

Great Vets office! Took our sick dog in, and they treated her on the spot. Very reasonable price, they really cared about our dog, and it showed the minute we walked in. She is sleeping comfortably now, and we hope the medication is exactly what she needed!

We LOVE this clinic. I have been going here for 20 years - my parents and in-laws have been going since the late 1960s. The staff and doctors are compassionate and knowledgeable. We and our pets are always warmly greeted. We have referred in so many of our friends to Village - and all of our friends feel the same way. We meet people on the sand bar near Singer Island and many of them go there - and feel the same as we do. Dr Berkenblit and Dr Wilson did emergency surgery on our old black lab - and saved his life - we had almost 3 more wonderful years with him after that. When we finally did put him down, Dr Wilson came to our house and she cried as much as we did. We board our dogs and our cats there when we are out of town. Our new puppy is going to Doggie Day Care there - she gets some basic training as well as learns how to get along with other dogs - and it wears her out, so she is not crazy when we get home at night.

I have never been to a vet hospital with such caring and compasionate staff. The Doctor was so knowlegable and fixed my pet's problem in just 1 visit. It was the first time that I visited a clinic where I felt comfortable that they knew what they were doing. Facility was clean and had all the equipment to get answers to my pets chronic problems quickly.
