Carlos Daniel Ameijeiras, DVM
Neighborhood Veterinary Center is driven by the passion of all our staff, but it is the product of years of hard work by Dr. Carlos Daniel Ameijeiras.
Born in South Florida, I have grown up and been a part of the Hallandale Community for over 18 years. I lived in the area through most of my childhood and still attend St. Mathews Catholic Church with my family. Driven to the veterinary field as a young child, I had set my goal to become a vet at the young age of six. Throughout my childhood, I concentrated my studies and my volunteer hours to move me towards my career goal. I graduated from Miami Springs Senior High in 2004 with several college level science credits. After spending three great years becoming a true Gator, I received my Bachelor's in Animal Science from the University of Florida in 2007. At that time, I was given the opportunity to pursue my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State University. Upon completion in 2011, I returned home to Hallandale to start my internship in a locally renowned animal hospital. After my one year internship, they retained me for another three years until the clinic was sold to a corporate company. Unwilling to succumb to the corporate mentality, I ventured on my own. From there, I moved to a practice down in South Miami for a year until my dream of Neighborhood Veterinary Center was completed. Working at a high pace emergency clinic has allowed for my knowledge and experience to grow exponentially in my rather short time there. I strive to maintain myself at the top of my craft, attending conferences, staying up with the most current journals and constantly trying to improve myself. Seeing my own practice up and running is truly a childhood goal come to a reality. The opportunity to own and run my own veterinary clinic allows me to assure that my beliefs, as well as the reasons for me becoming a vet, can be seen in every aspect of the hospital. From being greeted at the door, to comforting owners through the difficult times, I believe that each pet and its owner is special and should be treated as such. To be able to open up the clinic down the road from where I grew up, go to church and will raise my children only brings more joy to my heart. I want for Neighborhood Veterinary Center to be a staple in Hallandale Beach for decades to come.
I have to take the opportunity to thank my family for who I am and for all that I have accomplished in my personal and professional life; it is all thanks to their hard work and dedication. Starting with my parents who have supported me through all my years of schooling and have continued their devotion to the actual construction of the clinic. When it is said that we are "Family owned and operated," it really means just that. I also cannot say enough about my amazing wife, whose role in the building of the practice has been instrumental, and she also did all of this while pregnant with our first child. Since opening the practice my family has grown with the addition of my two beautiful baby girls which are my constant source of happiness and truly complete me.
I look forward to seeing you and your pet around the NEIGHBORHOOD and at the clinic!
