VCA Hillsboro Animal Hospital

Vanessa Pisano, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, University of Florida


Dr. Vanessa Pisano has been with the VCA family for 15 years. She is one of the rare South Florida natives that was born and raised in Miami! Reluctantly she left her home to obtain a degree in Microbiology and attend Veterinary school at the University of Florida. She returned to South Florida to do an internship at Hollywood Animal Hospital and then started her career with VCA. Special interests are surgery, opthalmology, and acupuncture. Dr. Pisano's hobbies are reading, hiking, skiing and embarrassing her husband and son! She is the very proud owner of her dog, 3 cats and 6 rats.

Working with animals was a no-brainer - I never wanted to do anything else!

I am happy to be part of the VCA family and am proud of the quality of medicine here. I love my co-workers who make me laugh every single day and I know they care about my patients, clients and me.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
