ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: VCA Animal Hospitals have earned a solid reputation for offering the very best in veterinary medicine as well as the latest technological advances and therapies. We believe that giving back to the community that support us is paramount.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Meals on Wheels of South Florida for Companion Animals started when volunteers began to notice clients sharing their meals with their pets. Senior on a restricted budget can have a difficult time meeting their own needs and often the needs of their companion animals can be neglected. With only the support of volunteers and donation this organization provides delivery of food for these loyal pets once a month to clients of BMOW.

Dr. Sessa, you will be missed!!!!!!

Joining our family 28 years ago, Dr. Tom Sessa has spent a lifetime serving our pet community. Today, we bid him farewell.

As an iconic member of our practice, Dr. Sessa has touched the lives of not only the animals he has cared for but the clients, the colleagues and the staff with which he has shared his time. There will never be another soul quite like Dr. Sessa and his legendary "magic touch" will remain alive in the many lessons he has passed on during his practice.  


A message from Dr. Sessa:

To my dearly loved co-workers, clients, patients, and friends -
As many of you know, over the past couple of years I’ve experienced some medical setbacks.  Due to these issues, as of September 1, 2017, I will no longer be an employee of VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital.
I want to take a moment to thank you for the honor and privilege it has been to serve you these past 28 years. I have such fond memories of my time at Hollywood Animal Hospital, and it is with great sadness that I bid you farewell.

To my clients, you are like no other!  From trusting me to care for your new four legged babies, to crying with you as you had to say goodbye (and everything in between)...I will cherish each and every one of those experiences.   The friendships I’ve forged with some of you are lifelong, and I am eternally grateful for the loyalty and faith you all have had in me over the years.
To the staff, it is difficult to put into words how fond I am of you all.  Over the years I have worked with some of the most compassionate, devoted, and talented people – we will always be one big family.

Now, with great sadness, it is time for me to end this journey with you.  I can’t thank you all enough for allowing me into your lives.  While I will miss not being able to see you and care for your pets, I have complete confidence in the abilities of the doctors and staff at VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital.

My best wishes to you all and God bless –

Dr. Tom Sessa

We all remember Hurricane Andrew! How can we not help!!!

We all remember Hurricane Andrew! We all love pets! Therefore, our hearts go out to the people and pets of SE Texas.
While the tragic destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey cannot be undone, everyone at VCA is coming together during this time of need. 
When a disaster like this strikes, we all want to help right away.  At this current time, VCA is working with local Texas partners and organizations to learn what needs to be done and where we can be most effective.  Through VCA leadership teams in the area, partnerships with organizations like the SPCA of Texas have been forged to ensure shelters were cleared and that pets affected by the storm have a safe place to go.  Organizations have been flying and driving huge amounts of shelter pets to cities like Dallas Ft. Worth to get them away from the hurricane’s path. 

Sixteen of our area VCA hospitals are closed, three in the affected area remain open.  All VCA hospitals in surrounding cities like Dallas, San Antonio and New Orleans are ready to board and help those pets that are in need.
  
At our Hollywood Animal Hospital and other area VCA Hospital, donations of pet care items are being accepted. Monetary donations are being collected as well through our national VCA Charities effort. This national fund supports programs around the world that directly help pets in need as well as support educational programs promoting veterinary medicine for the treatment and prevention of cruelty to animals.
Now, through the September 30th, VCA Charities is dedicating monetary donations collected by all VCA practices to the VCA Pet Disaster/Emergency Relief Program to support the journey of healing in SE Texas. We are proud to work with our VCA family to help those in need and proud to continue to support our local and global community.
