About Us

Where your pets
are our family too.

Our facility provides a variety of services including soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries, advanced dental procedures as well as routine oral care, wellness exams, and blood work, vaccinations, emergency care, and even house call appointments. We have an array of advanced diagnostic equipment including radiology, on-site hematology analyzers as well as access to outside laboratories, telemedicine electrocardiography, board-certified radiologists and cardiologists, and a network of specialists in all disciplines of veterinary medicine.

Our clinic has been an established landmark in West Palm Beach for over 15 years. The clinic was named after the historic neighborhood of  El Cid.

We are equipped to handle all of your veterinary needs and will accommodate all walk-in emergencies, however, appointments made in advance are greatly appreciated.

Your Pet’s First Visit

We recommend you bring in any medical history, including vaccination history, for your pet on your first visit. We also highly recommend a complete physical examination for all pets on their first visit. This allows us to familiarize ourselves with your pet and to establish a baseline for future care. From there, our veterinarians will work closely with you to determine a schedule for care, including exams and any necessary treatments.

Our team’s top priorities are to treat our patients and to help educate our clients regarding all aspects of pet health and preventative care. We have assembled a caring team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible care for your pet. We invite you to give us a call, pay us a visit, or schedule an appointment today.
