Boaz Man embraced his love of animals at an early age, eagerly working every summer and holidays at animal hospitals. He completed his undergraduate degree in biology, with a double minor in chemistry and Judaic Studies, at the University of Miami. He earned his doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Ross University in 2004.

As the Owner and Medical Director of Boca Midtowne Animal Hospital, Dr. Man’s unrelenting devotion to the emotional and physical wellbeing of his patients is a family affair, engaging the pet “parents” in the entire process before, during and after each visit. To encourage routine checkups, they offer the cheapest vaccines in town and a free physical exam and medical history review for new patients.

Q: What does it mean to be FEAR-FREE certified?

A: Every pet deserves a FEAR-FREE vet visit. Prioritizing a pet’s emotional wellness is as important as addressing their medical needs. By recognizing signs of fear, anxiety and stress pets experience, we can prioritize what we do and how we do it. Pets do show us what they feel and our job is to recognize what they are saying.

Q: What is the AAHA accreditation you hold?

A: I am proud to say that our practice is one of a select few in the veterinary field to hold AHAA (American Animal Hospital Association) accreditation. AAHA-accredited practices are evaluated on stringent quality standards that encompass all aspects of veterinary medicine and recognizes a standard of excellence based upon approximately 900 criteria.

Q: Why are your veterinary video blogs important to you?

A: I am privileged to do what I love and it’s become a priority for me to show what we do as veterinarians. Seeing is believing and understanding a pet’s sickness and explaining it on video is educational. If my Instagram videos @bocamidtownevet and pet blog page helps pet parents then I know I have done my job.
