Practice History & Profile
The Coral Springs Animal Hospital was established by Lloyd S. Meisels, D.V.M. in September 1977.
The hospital originally occupied 2,500 square feet of rental space in a shopping center at the corners of Royal Palm Blvd. and University Drive in the City of Coral Springs. Since its opening, thanks to the support and acceptance of the pet-owning public, The Coral Springs Animal Hospital has experienced consistent and dramatic growth. Focusing on being the best animal hospital, which was opened with just one doctor and two employees, is now staffed by thirty-seven doctors and over one hundred twenty employees.
We have grown to become the largest privately-owned animal hospital in the state of Florida and one of the largest in the United States. We were awarded the prestigious National Hospital of the Year Award in 2015 by the American Animal Hospital Association as well as being named PetPlan® Practice of the year.
