Lakeside Animal Hospital

where your pets receive the best Veterinary health care





Meet the Lakeside Family

At Lakeside Animal Hospital, your Plantation Veterinary home, Robert Fernandez and the entire Lakeside team are committed to maintaining Monica’s legacy of practicing big medicine in a family hospital environment.

We accomplish this through, a group of experienced, dedicated, and caring support staff made up of technicians (nurses), receptionists, and kennel personnel who assist our veterinarians in caring for your pet. We understand how special each individual patient is to his or her family, and we strive to treat each pet who visits our hospital for any reason as if they were our own.

Lakeside Veterinary

We aim to provide you and your pet with the highest standard of veterinary care in addition to convenience, quality, compassion, and exceptional service.

We are the premier airborne infection control animal hospital! With our Novaerus air purifying technology around the hospital, the technology scrubs the air of viruses, bacteria, mold, pollen and other allergens, to create a healthier environment.

My dog loves coming there. When she sees Liz she goes crazy she just loves her to death. I spend most my time in Ocala or else I would be going there all the time
