Dr. Robert T. Pane
Dr. Robert T. Pane

Since 1977, Dr. Robert T. Pane has been a Veterinarian and Medical Director at South Kendall Animal Hospital.

Dr. Pane's fondness of animals began at a young age. After working on a local dairy farm, he became a kennel assistant at a local veterinary hospital where he was hired 8 years later as an associate veterinarian. More than anything, Dr. Pane attributes much of his inspiration to the German Shephard he raised from a puppy, who he shared unconditional love and companionship with.

His motivation to care for animals is undeniable as he earned early admission to veterinary school at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University in 1971. In 1975, he obtained his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. He also holds certification in Stem Cell Therapy and K-Laser Therapy.

With areas of professional focus including dentistry, surgery, exotic animal medicine, and dermatology, Dr. Pane has expertise in even the most complex cases. He is also a member of innumerable prestigious organizations including the American Veterinary Medical Association, South Florida Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, Association of Avian Veterinarians, Florida Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Feline Practitioners, American Veterinary Dental Society, American Academy of Veterinary Dermatology, American Ferret Association, American Heartworm Society, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians, Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians, Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, Association of Veterinary Family Practice, and the Association of Sugar Glider Veterinarians.

At home, Dr. Pane lives with his wife and two Boston Terriers, a cat, and a Yellow Front Amazon Parrot. When he is not caring for his patients at South Kendall Animal Hospital, he appreciates time gardening, weight lifting, stand-up paddle boarding, walking, and hiking.
