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

From the staff at the reception desk, to the techs performing various tests, culminating with our annual office visit with Dr. Bahr, our entire experience was, as usual, totally amazing. Our young adult cat, who had been spayed last year by Dr. Bahr, was once again treated like total royalty by everyone. Judging from our fur-baby’s notably content disposition during this year’s pilgrimage, it is clear that she was made to feel all the love from everyone she encountered at Lakeside! Their upbeat approach to all things animal is indeed palpable, and Dr. Bahr has consistently provided only the best of attention and medical care to each one of our animals…a dog and a cat…both of whom aged gracefully and only recently left this world with dignity –because of the wonderful care they each received over the last several years. Dr. Bahr has consistently exhibited only the utmost compassion and caring concern that all vets should aspire to provide their clients. We are huge fans of Dr. Bahr and Lakeside, and would be delighted to share our positive experiences with anyone who might be considering their invaluable services.
I started coming to Lakeside 3 dogs ago, which has now been many many years. After I moved to Weston I continued being a client all because of Dr. Fernandez, someone I greatly admired because of her genuine passion for animals. Even after her death I continue to drive all the way from Weston because that passion continues on through the doctors that took over. You all are wonderful there and even though expensive, I would not trust my dog in anyone else’s hands but Lakeside. Keep making Dr. Fernandez proud!
Everything was great. Thank you for taking caring of my Prada. Usually when we would come from her previous vet she would be all wound up but she was soo calm and laid back. She came home and got her spot back on the sofa next to her housemate Goldie and went to sleep. Thank you…..
Great you have always been great that’s why I take my children there.
I love that employees know that she likes belly rubs. Cassie and I both feel welcome at your clinic.
I am very pleased with the care my dog receives at Lakeside Animal Hospital. All staff has been friendly, helpful, and caring. It is a pleasure to visit there, and I do not hesitate to recommend them to everyone I know.
The check out was fantastic. Estee did a wonderful job with Tucknee’s bath.
I dropped off my cats for their bath before work and they were ready earlier than usual. I was quite pleased. 🙂
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
The staff treats Kylie and I like family. Very attentive and available for questions. Dr Bahr and the entire team are just incredible. Dr. Fernandez would be very proud.
