Pet Preventive Medicine

Preventive Medicine for your pet is an important part of what we do at Regal Animal Hospital. Through physical examinations and routine testing (fecal, lab work, and heartworm tests), vaccinations and preventative care options (flea, tick and heart-worm prevention or nutritional health counseling), we work with you to minimize as many health risks, illnesses and problems as possible.

Pet Dental Care

At Regal Animal Hospital we can offer guidance for at-home maintenance care and routine dental cleanings, which can help prevent advanced dental disease (gingivitis, bone destruction, tooth loss) and other serious health problems.  A healthy pet is a happy pet.  Schedule a dental evaluation and cleaning for your pet today!

Surgical Procedure

At Regal Animal Hospital, we perform a wide variety of surgical procedures from routine spays, neuters and declaws to major soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.  We use state of the art surgical and anesthesia equipment that allows us to continually monitor for safety during surgical procedures, and provide your pet with the best patient care possible.



Pet Diagnostics

Diagnostic testing is essential to identifying the source of injuries and illnesses.  Should your pet need routine surgery or even advanced surgical procedures, you can take comfort in knowing that our facility is equipped with the latest diagnostic and surgical equipment.  At Regal Animal Hospital we utilize digital radiography, routine in-house lab testing, advanced outside lab testing, and consult with boarded specialists such as radiologists, internists, and surgeons to properly diagnose and manage your pet’s condition.


We offer safe and comfortable boarding options for your dog or cat.  Whether your pet’s medical needs require an overnight stay, you desire to have an emergency care plan in place during sever weather, or you simply need accommodations while traveling.

For your convenience, our Client Registration and Pet Boarding forms can be downloaded and completed prior to your pet’s stay

  • Wonderful experience! No place like it! Immediately greeted by an employee, offered coffee, bottled water a snack (for Lulu and I) - which was perfect coming straight from work. The facilities, professionalism, cleanliness, and service were nothing I had experienced anywhere else. Dr. John's calmness and friendliness were very comforting to my little Morkie, Lulu. Upon checking out, I thought for sure this experience was going to be costly for Lulu and I, the fanciness of the place, the service, the snacks. I was VERY wrong. It was the least I have ever spent on an office visit in South Florida in all of Lulu's seven years–Leslie K., Boynton Beach, FL

  • Great place. Dr. Joyce was very professional and great with all three of my dogs. Nice facilities, and cool staff. They seem to really care there. I'll be back for sure.–Chris F., Coconut Creek, FL

  • Great vet!! Family operated I believe and everyone is so nice and caring :) –Niki K.

  • Dr. Joyce and staff are great. They've taken great care of our dogs and always go above and beyond. I would recommend them to everyone.–Felix J Melendez, March, 2014

  • We've only had one visit at Regal but it was above and beyond so I feel it is worth a review. We were late and they got us (and our 2 hyper dogs) in with no wait. From the woman at the front desk to the tech, and extra props to Dr. Joyce, we left there knowing switching vets was the best decision for us, our pups, and our wallets! To top it off, Dr. Joyce reached out to us personally to follow-up. Thanks Regal!!–Amanda Rich, November, 2014

  • Can't say enough about this great stuff. Dr. Joyce and his team have assisted my family and our four-legged friends through a lot of ups and downs. if you're looking for one of those doctors, that practices medicine and treat his patients with kindness and respect. This is your guy! Every patient and every situation is treated the same with the upmost of importance and care. I am glad he's young, because I plan to stay with dr. Joyce and his team until he retires–Eileen M. Burns, September, 2014
