Excellence and compassion, above all else.

We are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership, preventative health care, and health-related educational opportunities for our clients. Emerald Hills Animal Hospital strives to offer excellence in veterinary care to Hollywood, FL, Broward County, and beyond.

By emphasizing dedication, respect, compassion, teamwork, and excellence across our practice and throughout all elements of veterinary care, Emerald Hills Animal Hospital has continued to thrive with the support of the Broward County community. These core values have been set in place since our founding in 1988, and are what make us who we are today.

We invite you to learn more about these core values below.

EXCELLENCE to maintain the highest standards of service.

We are committed to providing your pets with the highest quality care possible, from start to finish. From our state-of-the-art veterinary facility and equipment to our specialized veterinary staff members, we pride ourselves in our total devotion to animal health and well-being. All care that goes towards our patients is done with the utmost care and respect for pets, and their owners. Part of that commitment is our promise to offer premium veterinary care at an affordable price, which we strive to provide to you each and every time you visit our practice.

COMPASSION toward our patients and their owners.

Along with the rest of our qualified veterinary staff, Dr. Tapper’s extensive years of experience can help put client worries at ease. Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals is with you and your pets every step of the way, from regular check-ups to more complicated and comprehensive measures for specialized care. We believe that compassion and empathy bring us closer to pets, and when we personalize that attention to pets it leads to better outcomes. That’s what you can trust Emerald Hills Animal Hospital to give to you and your furry friends. We know that your pets are members of your family, and we treat them that way.

DEDICATION to our practice and our mission.

Part of our mission is founded on our dedication to you and your pets. We are dedicated to excellence in our profession, to pets big and small, and above all, to offering you the best service possible. With over thirty years of history in the veterinary community and in Broward County, Emerald Hills Animal Hospital has proven itself again and again by being a practice that puts pets first. We educate pet owners to the best of our ability so that you can take the best care of them possible, to increase their quality of life overall.

RESPECT for others and their concerns.

We understand that veterinary medicine can come with pre-existing conditions: anxiety and uncertainty for both patients and their owners. It can be stressful to take your furry friend to the vet, and we understand that. You can count on our staff to respect pet owners and treat their beloved pets accordingly: we understand that your pet is part of the family. Whatever stage of life or illness your pet is in, no question or concern is too minor. We will make ourselves available to you to assuage your concerns. All treatments are done with the utmost care and respect for the animals our patients love.

TEAMWORK to provide the best patient care.

Working in close coordination, from reception to long-term veterinarians, our veterinary staff all work closely together and value communication. We also believe in working in tandem with you, the pet owner. In this way, we provide high quality, honest care, as we know that as their primary home care providers, we can discuss everything from diet and nutrition to vaccinations, surgical procedures, and even cosmetic care. This way you know your pets will have the best care possible, whether they’re at home or with us.
