Found a great Veternarian!

We are so glad we found Dr. Mike Tenzer and South Beach Animal Hospital! Our 7-year old Corgie has had resent eye issues. We called and were able to get an appointment within 45 minutes. The office was very clean and inviting. The office staff was friendly and professional. We could tell right away they were animal lovers. Dr. Mike Tenzer checked out our pet thoroughly and prescribed medications. The cost of the visit and meds were reasonable in my opinion. I was delighted with the service provided and will be back with my pet as needed. I would recommend South Beach Animal Hospital and Dr. Tenzer to anyone needing a vet!



Wonderful! This looks like a s...

Wonderful! This looks like a small place from the outside but is very nice and pretty big on the inside, clean, simple, nice place. Great staff, great vets, very caring and treat your pets like a member of their own family. I'm very fortunate to have found this place. Dr. Tenzer is very down to earth and geunine. The boarding area for the dogs are the size of the living area in a small studio apartment w/ nice tile and the cat boarding area is very cozy. I recommend this place to everyone.

If you love your pet.........bring them here.

I have been taking my 2 dogs to Dr.Tenzer since he opened his business. About 14 years now. I would not dream of taking my dogs anywhere else. Extremely good care, very honest. Explains everything very well and will not try to take advantage of a situation. They have gone above and beyond for me at this hospital. You can tell that they genuinly care about animals.

I feel like home when going there and know that my dogs will receive the best care that they can possibly get.
Highly recommend them. Entire staff is extremely good.

So if you love your pets bring them here, they will be cared for. Thank you Tenzer for everything.

Loyal patient

I've been taking my dog here since the day I got him. He was a very sick puppy. I walked in without an appointment and the staff was sweet and helpful and the associate at that time, Dr. Hatfield agreed to see us. My dog ended up needing major care including a blood transfusion. Over the several weeks we saw both doctors many, many times. I am grateful to them every day I have my dog with me, because for sure, they saved his life. I am shocked to read the review of September 2010 because for all the times I have been there, I've never been made to wait and certaily have never been treated poorly.

Dr. Tenzer has been my dog's doctor for over 4 years now. The quality care care and compassion at South Beach Animal Hospital is excellent. My dog had a problem this week and I got an appointment the next day. We saw the new associate, Dr. Walter, who is as kind and comassionate as Dr. Tenzer. She is a great addition to the practice.

no great

Went there because of the positive reviews on this site - I moved my busy agenda so I could take my dog to the Vet. Once there I waited 30 minutes for an appointment I had and then the doctor did not seem to care, he did not pay attention the my dog's breed special needs. He came back from the lab saying 'yeah, your dog's skins is FULL of bateria'... which bacteria, he did not say. He gave my dog antibiotics for 3 weeks, didnt do a thing... I have been trying to schedule a follow-up appointment but the vet's hours are very limited, the office is opened for 9 business hours but the vet is only there for 5, doesnt really make a lot of sense...



Always there for your pet(s)

I have been going to So. Beach Animal Hospital, Dr. Michael Tenzer since he opened his practice in 1997 on Miami Beach with my cat Daisy. She is still around as we speak. Thanks to Dr. Tenzer. His concern, his employee's concern over the years for various and sundry illnesses etc., is exceptional. He has the most empathy for animals that you will ever want to see and cannot see any animal suffering. Extremely knowledgable and obviously over the years, I trust only him and would never in a l00 years go to anyone else. His staff has been with him for many years as well and that speaks for itself as well. Just a fabulous human being.

terrific place sobe animal hospital

beats me how i got on here but i did since im trying to accomplish an idea i have for where i now live out of state...i called dr t for some input & he offered etc & said i should try this site & similar ones to get that as it may, i could make u all read my thoughts on dr t, his staff, & the hospital but i would be repeating all the good reviews i just read on here about sobe animal hospital...i will say ive never been approached to buy stuff i never needed except for the usual meds for my dogs; flea, tick, shots for the license once for 3 years they do, or the specialized dry dog food only sold by a vet...ive known & been a patient of theirs for 7 years with 2 dogs both treated by passed away on his own so to speak & the other was kept alive on a serious medical condition for 2 years when he was given just a few months...cant knock any of that...he treated my mom very well & she thought very highly of him & the entire hospital & staff & she was quite picky to say the least...dr t also was my current dogs vet until i moved out of state but they still communicate...dont your pets communicate with him when they visit the hospital? ah ha! ya never thought of that did ya...anyway, i can only say excellent things about dr tenzer, the staff, & the hospital, & if u must know his dad as well also a vet that dealt with my dog that passed on his go pay them a visit but since they are so busy, schedule a visit as if u are a prospective patient so u can have some of their time & check it all out for yourselves...oh, and yell at the city to give them some more parking spaces as i used to do...thanks, bruce

Compassionate Professionals

Not to be Confused with miami beach animal hospital.
Not sure why they changed their name to one so similar to South Beach, but I can only speak for how Dr Michael Tenzer Of South Beach Animal Hospital restored my dog's health after a previous vet had not performed adequate care for her dental issues. Zoe is 16 & now has re-gained her lively spirit of years ago after having oral surgery by Dr Tenzer & his great staff. The combination of holistic common sense with state of the art equipment & expertise is my idea of Vet Paradise. Oh, and take it from me to not to put off dental care for your best friend.

The best care for our four legged children

DR. Tenzer and the staff treated us like we were family. My two small yorkies had their teeth cleaned and I was a nervous mommy. The Dr allowed me to wait for them and kept me up on all the happings. The staff was also giving me up to date info. I think they are 110%. My girls
want to thank you for the great treatment you gave to us and our pretty clean teeth. GREAT JOB DONE.

Best Animal Hospital in Miami Beach

Let me just say South Beach Animal Hospital is a blessing in the form of Animal Care. I've recently moved to Miami Beach from Chicago and I moved down here with my two dogs (Charile and Mojo) so one of the main things I did was search where I could take my babies for care they desperatly needed (heartworm). I went to a couple of places that I saw just riding around Miami beach but none were as attentive and caring as South Beach Animal Hospital. Dr. Tenzer really made me feel like my boys were long time patient's and they would be taken care of so I felt super comfortable leaving them in his care. Honestly, back in Chicago, my boys received good care and I felt comfortable but Dr. Tenzer makes it a point to make sure that I fully understand everything that is going on with their health and all of the medication and treatment they are recieving here. Never do I feel that I am being rushed out of the office or that I am not being taken care of. The entire staff is very friendly and informative with any questions or concerns that I have. All in all, South Beach Animal Hospital is great and I always recommend my friends to go there with there pets. :-)

If it's extraordinary care that your looking for, visit Dr. Tenzer!

I recently moved out of Miami Beach and continue to visit South Beach Animal Hospital for the care of my two dogs. The extra 15-20 minute drive is definitely worth the trip, it is hard to find dependable healthcare services out there and the hospital staff members are extremely caring and hospitable. Dr. Tenzer along with the hospital's vet care technicians are very informative and detailed during all procedures. My dogs love the trip to the vet. As a professional who often travels I feel entirely confident that South Beach Animal Hospital will adequately care for my pets, they absolutely love the hospital and enjoy boarding in their spacious and comfortably accomodated pet suites. This animal hospital definitely provides great care for my pets and wonderful services, easy to say I'm not going anywhere!

The Best Vet and Animal Hospital Around!!!!

I have been taking my dog and cat to Dr. Mike Tenzer for over eight years and he is truly unparalleled as a Veterinarian and is a physician in every sense of the word. I have been through so much with my little dog Diva, and never once was I rushed or pushed aside because the hospital was too busy. Dr. Tenzer gives one hundred percent of himself to each of his patients and to their sometimes very distraught Owners! He listens to all of your concerns and worries without ever making you feel like you are wasting his time. He explores every possible and viable option for treatment; he is always current and aware of new studies or breakthroughs in veterinary medicine and pet care. He is always willing to try the least invasive treatment whenever possible, and always has the next plan of action clearly mapped out. Dr. Hatfield and the Staff at South Beach Animal Hospital take his lead and are all professional, caring and take excellent care of the animals; it is like a family when you are there. If your animal is sick or needs surgery it is stressful enough to have to deal with, and the staff go out of their way to help you get through it.

The Hospital environment is technologically up to date, impeccably clean and very welcoming. Dr. Tenzer's passion for the welfare and care of animals carries through his staff and hospital. Miami Beach is so very lucky to have this presence and I cannot imagine going anywhere else!

Only the best, for my four-legged friends!

I?ve been taking my pets to South Beach Animal Hospital since it opened over 10 years ago. I wouldn?t take them anywhere else. Common sense advice and preventative medicine make serious health problems for my pets rare, and on those few occasions when one of my pets fell seriously ill, we had access to the best of cutting edge veterinary medicine. Dr. Tenzer thinks outside the box when he has to and is relentless in the pursuit of options in cases where many would see no hope. He combines that commitment to excellence with a friendly personality and genuine compassion. This place is simply the best.

Best pet care in South FL.

I wouldn't take our family's pets anywhere else for care. We recently adopted a kitten that ended up needing quite a bit of care, and Dr. Tenzer and his staff treated us like family. I've been to other animal hospitals that feel like factory, but SoBe Animal Hospital is different. I actually drive a pretty long distance to see them, but it's definitely worth it!
