Welcome to Ferreira Animal Hospital, located in Miami, Florida where you and your pets are part of our family!

Dr. Ferreira and her team take great pride in providing your pets with the most personalized, compassionate and up-to-date care possible.

Preventive health care, including regularly-scheduled physical exams, vaccinations, heartworm and tick-borne disease testing and prevention, comprise the cornerstone of wellness care to maximize your pet's quality of life and longevity. Our warm, friendly environment helps to keep your pets as happy and relaxed as possible, so that their experience is positive--and we enjoy bribing them with treats at each visit to help keep it that way.

We invite you to call or stop by anytime to introduce yourself and your pets-- no matter how busy we may be, there is always time for a dog biscuit, cat treat, or a little TLC, to get things started off on the right paw!
