We Specialize in Emergency Vet Care
LeadER Animal Specialty Hospital in Cooper City is a group of board-certified specialists that is dedicated to providing exceptional emergency vet care and referral services. We work closely with your primary care veterinarian to establish a diagnosis and formulate the optimal treatment plan for your pet.
We strongly emphasize the team approach in our practice of emergency vet medicine and surgery. By combining the skills of all our specialists, we can frequently resolve the most difficult medical problem.
Just as important, we also believe that the primary care veterinarian’s participation is critical to the successful diagnosis and treatment of our patients. We are committed to open and full communication with both the client and referring veterinarian throughout the care process. We only see patients by referral from another veterinarian or one of our Animal Medical Center at Cooper City general practitioners.

The Cardiology Department at LeadER Animal Specialty Hospital in Cooper City provides advanced diagnostic evaluation of heart disease. Our animal hospital has extensive experience in treating acquired and congenital heart disease as well as pericardial disease.
LeadER’s internal medicine department uses the very latest technology to get a clearer picture and deeper understanding of underlying diseases. For example, ultrasound can help us visualize the liver, gall bladder, spleen, kidney, pancreas, and bladder. Endoscopy is often used to examine and collect specimens from the airways, stomach, small intestine, colon, and nose or to retrieve something your pet has swallowed. Laparoscopy allows us to biopsy the liver or pancreas on a minimally invasive basis. We offer Dialysis & Plasma exchange. Whatever your pet needs, you can depend on our veterinary team in Cooper City to deliver care with precision, compassion, and professionalism.
