Dr. Beatriz Perez has been a member of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce since 2016, and has helped a number of Chamber members by providing quality medicine and compassionate care to animals.

Middle River Animal Hospital is a locally owned animal hospital that helps maintain the bond between parent and pet. They are a cloud based hospital with the latest equipment to provide the best possible care to animals, also offering house calls and providing in-home hospice care.

She is an active member of the GLBX Leads groups and shares her experiences with the chamber with the local community. Dr. Perez strives to be a source of information and supports fellow members in order to help maintain and enhance the economic environment in Fort Lauderdale.

Prior to owning Middle River Animal Hospital, Dr. Beatriz Perez studied as the University of Florida where she received her Bachelors in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation.

Upon graduating, she completed a small animal internship and worked locally for 7 years. Middle River Animal Hospital will be having it’s 1 Year Anniversary this year, and Dr. Beatriz Perez is proud to have dedicated her hospital to her beloved pets whom have made her the veterinarian she is today.

When not connecting with other members at the Chamber and running her hospital, Dr. Perez is a supporter of animal rescue groups all over Broward County. She donates services and goods to both animal and non-animal based Non-Profits. She is also currently a partner with Beyond Nine Cat Rescue.
