"So many great things to say about Dixie Animal Hospital. Dr. Sparks has been our doctor for years and she is truly the best. Our dogs love her and we consider her family rather than just our doctor. I trust that she will always give the best care and answers all of our silly questions and concerns. The staff is beyond awesome and kind. Thank you for taking such great care of our fur babies!"

"Top quality care with professional and courteous service. I've been taking my dogs to Dixie since 2017 and the dogs as if they were their own. Have and will continue to recommend them."

"After doing my research for a vet for my fur baby I fell upon Dixie Animal Hospital and could not be happier I did. Not only was making the appointment quick and easy, but everything was done with such organization like they did not miss a beat. Also, their office is so clean which is a major plus! The staff is extremely nice and Dr. Sparks is knowledgeable and extremely understanding—she makes sure you understand everything before leaving. This will definitely be my fur baby’s vet for the years to come."

"I have been going to Dixie Animal Hospital almost 50 years. Dr. Rainey and Dr. Kittrell have taken care of my animals for a long time. Dixie Animal Hospital is the best Veterinarian Hospital there is. Dr. Pegelow who has taken care of my animals is great. I have to say that Dr. Rainey, Dr. Kittrell, and Dr. Pegelow are the best Veterinains there are. Thank you for providing excellent care to my animals."

"Dr. Pegelow truly cares about the well being of his patients -- the four and two legged ones! As an allied pet professional I whole heartedly recommend Dixie Animal Clinic to anyone who asks for a referral to a compassionate, knowledgeable and professional veterinary practice in south east dade. The vets at Dixie has decades of experience combined, a state of the art facility, staff with positive attitudes, the list goes on. It's obvious Dixie animal hospital and Dr. Pegelow are passionate about what they do. Thank you Dixie for being amazing!"

"Great animal hospital! We take both our dogs here and while it is expensive, we do appreciate the care our pets receive from Dr. Pegalow and the rest of the staff. They always call after our appointments to see how our dogs are doing, which is a nice touch! Often it is Dr. Pegalow calling himself. He is very attentive and takes his time with each animal. We do like Dixie Animal Hospital and will always look to them for our pets' medical needs."

"It has been 15 years since we moved to Miami. In 1997, upon arrival, I visited one veterinarian with our two cocker spaniels. I was unhappy with their approach. My next visit was to Dixie Animal Hospital...what a difference. We have had three canine children under their care. Two have expired. I can't express the comfort that the doctors and staff gave us through that difficult time. Ten plus years ago we acquired "Chevy", a lab mix, from the Broward Shelter. He is the spark in our lives! Today he was seen at Dixie and everyone of the staff greeted him and called him by name. What a wonderful feeling in addition to the great medical care he gets. Honestly, you can't do better."

"After moving from out of state I was very happy to find this practice.  The front desk is always  extremely helpful and the vet techs are always friendly and punctual.  The various doctors I have seen have provided  compassionate care and treatment for my animals. This will be my lifelong vet.."

- Victor L. on Yelp

"Our 15 year old dog was suffering heart failure & we knew her life was ending.....We wanted a 'traveling vet' to come to us but no one was able to help, and our vet had the day off. I reached out to Dr. Lara Sparks at Dixie Animal Hospital and she asked us to bring "Patches" to her, said not to worry, she would be there for us. Our first time at Dixie and even though it was a gut-wrenching experience, Dr. Sparks made us, as well as Patches, very comfortable. She calmly explained what was going to happen.  My husband & I were quite impressed with her demeanor, compassion & expertise. The staff also seemed kind & calm. I believe they were intentionally giving us our space.....If we should  get a new dog - without a doubt Dr. Sparks will be taking care of her. She rocks!!!"

- Lory W. on Yelp

"Still as good as it gets!!! Had to take one of my babies there recently to have a benign tumor removed from her paw. :( Thank goodness all is ok. Still, as always, love, love, love Dr. Rainey! Dr. Kittrell, Julie, Kryzell and Patrick- all of you are wonderful! You guys have always been great with my furry family, and human family included. Thanks again for your continued quality of care."
