  • We love the VCA...

    -Nick and Patty Katz from Hollywood, FL
    Pet Name: Rosie, Cinnamon, Beethoven, Kitty and Sophie

    We love Dr. Buckweitz & the entire VCA staff. From routine grooming to unexpected emergencies, they provide more than just professional services; they have always provided genuine, heartfelt care to all of our pets. For that, we are truly grateful!


  • Compassionate and Caring

    -Sandra Tomlin from Hollywood, FL

    We have taken our many cats over the years to Dr. B and Dr. K. They have both always been extremely caring and compassionate in the treatment of our babies. We would not take them to anyone else for treatment whether it is for a routine exam or something more serious. All of the VCA staff have also always been extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We feel very comfortable bringing our darlings to VCA.


  • Every pet is special here

    -Lorraine Broertjes from Hollywood, FL
    Pet Name: Harold

    Pet Image VCA has been our dog Harold's animal hospital since his adoption from the Humane Society. Everyone on the staff is sincerely kind to both people and animals. Harold has been treated there for everything from routine conditions to surgery, always with the same level of professionalism, concern and patience. I feel confident putting my dog's health in this staff's hands. THANK YOU!!!


  • Dedicated Group of People

    -Randi Vigarino from Hollywood, FL
    Pet Name: Katrina

    I have been taking my four cats to VCA Stirling Square Animal Hospital since they were kittens, and no matter what the reason, if just for a routine exam or yearly shots to a life threatening illness; Dr. B and all of the staff of the hospital have been wonderful and so caring. It is very rare in this day and age to find such a dedicated group of people who truly care.

    In 2005, my beautiful 5 year old, black cat "Katrina" was vomiting more than usual which could be due to eating too fast or hairballs, yet I sensed something was wrong. Katrina's initial lab tests all came back normal. Dr. B believes that the owner knows their pet best and will always treat any concerns with much care. She offered more testing but did not push me. She does not push for more testing unless she feels it is warranted. We agreed that additional testing was needed and shortly thereafter, Katrina was diagnosed with cancer in her spleen. She put me in contact with an excellent surgeon and oncologist and it has been four years and Katrina is in complete remission. Looking back, if my husband and I would not have been able to pursue treatment due to finances, I know she would have not judged me. But, thanks to Dr. B's care and guidance, I have been able to continue to have my beautiful Katrina meet me at the door each day when I get home from work.

    My second testimonial is about my 5 year old tiger cat, Isabella. She performed bladder surgery several years ago to remove stones. She drove back to the hospital in the middle of the night to check on her. How lucky are the people who take their pets to VCA Stirling Square and to have their pets treated with such love.


  • Wonderful things to say

    -Elana Brown from Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Pet Name: Karma

    Pet Image I have nothing but wonderful things to say about VCA Stirling Square Animal Hospital. The staff always makes me feel welcome and comfortable with their caring and knowledgeable approach. I have taken my pets to VCA Stirling Square for 5 years and plan to continue returning for years to come. When my dog Karma fell ill unexpectedly at the age of 3 ½ years, I was devastated. Dr B and the rest of the staff worked with me for over 2 months to diagnose and treat her. I received lab and study updates religiously and was involved in her care every step of the way. As Karma’s condition began to deteriorate, Dr B would periodically call me at home after hours to check up on her and would answer any question I had that night. One of the techs even volunteered to take Karma home one night when I needed to go out of town because she was concerned about her. Though Karma never made it to her 4th birthday, I know we did everything we could before it was time to say goodbye. I thank VCA Stirling square for making the hardest decision of my life as guilt-free as possible because I know Karma received superior medical care and there simply was nothing else to be done. I now have a new puppy named Dumo, who is doing Fabulous. He has been to VCA multiple times for routine exams and is in perfect health. The staff has welcomed him with open arms and we look forward to our next visit. Thank you everyone at VCA Stirling Square Animal Hospital. Special thanks to Dr B and Suzanne.

  • You Guys Rock

    -Beverly Bailey from Miramar, FL
    Pet Name: Max and Leo

    Pet Image I know that each person is made for a special purpose and so there is no doubt in my mind that Dr. B. and the staff at VCA Stirling Square Animal Hospital were made to care for animals. They truly love what they do and it reflects in the genuine care and concern that they consistently show to my dogs Leo and Max. My dogs have been cared for by VCA hospitals their entire lives (almost 14 years), but for the last 6 years they have been cared for by Dr. B and the staff at VCA Stirling Hospital. I would not hesitate to recommend VCA Stirling Square to anyone I know. I remember a few years ago when Max had to be treated for heartworm disease how difficult it was for me, but Dr. B was very encouraging and really helped me through his treatment process. Needless to say, Max had complete recovery. Last summer Max became ill and though he did not make it to his 14th birthday, I know that we did everything we could possibly do for him before it was time to say goodbye. I don’t know how I would have made it without the help of Dr. B. Then recently Leo had a surgical procedure and has some post-op problems – and as usual, Dr. B. and the staff were there for me and Leo who is well on his way to a complete recovery. There are many instances that I can recall of genuine care demonstrated by the staff at VCA Stirling Square and Dr. B. Thanks to the groomer for the wonderful job she did with Max and what she continues to do with Leo. A heartfelt thank you to everyone at VCA Stirling Square Animal Hospital. Special thanks to Dr. Buckweitz. Beverly Bailey, Miramar FL


  • VCA Pet care is just pure LOVE

    -Sonya Atkinson from Hollywood, FL
    Pet Name: Lucy

    VCA Stirling Square has been our choice for pet care for years. Dr. Buckweitz aka Dr B. is worth her weight in gold. She has an instinct about her patients health, and has always delivered the best of care, compassion and love. Dr. Meyers is truly missed in our hearts and will always have a place in my heart for her compassion, and comfort with our dearest Zoey, and for saving my Lucy's life. My little Lucy is here today because VCA reacted so prompt to save her life. The entire staff never could be thanked enough for what they all do, above and beyond, for the animals. It is amazing to see an entire staff that works in such harmony with each other. This truly is: "Better than human care delivered to our pets the VCA way!" Thank you, to each and every one of you at VCA. Sonya Atkinson

    -Kevin Graver from Hollywood, FL
    Pet Name: Gypsy

    Pet Image We have been in S. FL quite a while & could not find an animal hospital we liked as much as the one we used up north, but finally have! From the Vet we saw (Dr. Groveman) to the friendly staff to the facility to the Hospital Manager (Suzanne), we couldn't be happier.
