Meet our Groomer Brian

Brian has been grooming dogs professionally for 13 years. 

 I have always felt that "a clean dog or cat is a happy and healthy pet" and, more importantly, "a clean pet makes a happy pet parent" so leave the mess to me.

It's my job as your pet stylist to provide you and your pooch or kitty with the best quality grooming experience that will leave your furry friend squeaky clean and smelling great.

Dr. Carrie Benson

                Dr. Carrie Benson joined the VPAH team in February of 2015. After graduating from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine with Dr. Birken, she was a general practitioner in the central Florida area. Early in 2015, she decided to relocate back to Fort Lauderdale where she is originally from in order to be closer to her family.
Dr. Benson's professional interests include general soft tissue surgery, geriatric pet care, and pet rescue efforts. She has been a member of the Florida Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association since graduation. Dr. Benson is excited to have joined the VPAH team and wants to continue practicing quality and compassionate veterinary care.
"As a child, I especially enjoyed science and math classes in school, and my family has had a bit of a menagerie of pets throughout the years. Put these two things together, and you get someone who loves animals and has the desire to care for them medically. I wouldn't have chosen another career! It is my hope to help clients have happy, rewarding, and responsible relationships with their pets for many years," said Dr. Benson.

Ronnie Birken


My name is Ronnie Birken and I have been working at an animal hospital for the past 5 years as a receptionist. I am fortunate enough to be able to combine my love and passion for all animals with a job I truly enjoy.

I have worn many hats over the years including teaching in special education, a floral designer at Grants Flowers on Las Olas Boulevard, retail sales, and most importantly, mother to 4 great children, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a 17 year old cockatiel, and grandmother to my wonderful grandson, Mason.

In my spare time I enjoy watercolor painting and gardening. I am very excited to be part of Victoria Park Animal Hospital and look forward to meeting our new friends and their pets.
