Mahan Animal Clinic


Our staff treats you and your pet like family from the moment you walk in the door. We always ensure that you are well informed about your pet’s care and are comfortable with the decisions being made. We provide a variety of services including medical checkups and procedures, boarding, and providing supplies.

Mahan Animal Clinic was founded in 1998, and Dr. Scott Pliskin took over sole ownership in 2000. Since its founding, we have striven for exemplary care and service. We are happy to welcome your questions regarding any health or behavioral issue your pet may be experiencing, including exotic animals.

Dr. Pliskin earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Education and spent five years teaching in public schools in his native New York City, and later in South Florida.

Se habla español! Dr. Pliskin received his training in veterinary medicine and animal husbandry at the National University of Mexico in Mexico City.


In addition to common pets like dogs and cats, we will see to the care of “any animal that will fit through the door” to quote Dr. Pliskin!  Common exotic pets we see include rabbits, ferrets, birds, pigs, chickens, reptiles and rodents. We also get various animals visits from pet stores like Petco, who bring us everything from snakes and lizards to mice and rats.  We offer vaccines based on your pet’s specific requirements, and we have extensive knowledge of what vaccines are needed for all the different species.

Topic: Preventative Care

“I am careful to inform all of our clients how important preventative care is the to life and health of their pets. It is in fact the best medicine. We offer a variety of services such as wellness exams and radiology for dogs, cats, pocket pets, exotics (we love snakes!), and small farm animals.

To keep your pets well, we offer vaccinations for dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. Ask us about our spay and neuter services, as well as routine dental cleanings. Our boarding facility is equipped to handle most all pets 365 days a year. We even offer bath and nail trim services. Our hope is to create a gentle and nurturing environment for all pets, and their people!” ~Dr. Pliskin
