We've been to many vets over the years and have found Dr. Lista and her staff to be truly excellent in every way. They are courteous, professional, caring, responsive, friendly, reasonably priced and demonstrate a real affinity for the animals they work with. We found a real treasure and would strongly recommend them without hesitation.

We have been bringing our rescued rott-mix, Tori, to Trails for vet care and boarding for the past five years. She is a very anxious pup who usually is mistrustful of everyone. However, she likes it there and loves the staff! Remarkable! As she is getting older, the staff has remained very loving and compassionate, which is appreciated by not only Tori, but also her worried mother! Tori fell outside the office during her last visit when her hips gave out and one of the amazing techs (Erika) ran right out and scooped her up with heroic strength and care! Thank you to the amazing staff at Trails!!!!

Great care for our pets!! We have been patients for many years, they are caring and the personalization of knowing our pets is wonderful.
Highly recommend no comparison to the commercially inclined huge non personalized vet clinics around this city. The staff is competent and the Dr is very knowledgable and caring.

I went to Trail Animal Hospital when my 15yr old rescue min pin began acting lethargic and sickly. He is a rescue and has been know to bite when stressed. I brought him in with a muzzle for his safety and theirs. Dr.Lista and her staff were very calm and reassuring when handling him. They took X rays and by the end of the visit he wasn't wearing the muzzle.. Dr.Lista and her staff made him feel very safe and I couldn't be happier to find a new veterinarian!

If you treat your furry friends like children, then this is the vet for you (and them!)

Dr. Lista and her staff are so loving and caring!  They always go above and beyond with our "children".  Everyone there treats them like babies, not customers.

Location is pretty central to everything.  The place is always clean and smells clean (which is a big deal at vet's offices).  There are about 5-6 parking spaces right in front.  

Easy and flexible for appointments (including Saturdays).  They also offer kennel services for your little one while you are away.  Everything is electronic, online and modern.

I would trust Dr. Lista and her crew at Trail with eyes closed.

After doing a lot of searching, I've found a clinic that's caring and affordable. 
The whole staff is attentive and show their honest concern for your pet. 
My dog suffers from a lot of stomach problems and about 2 months ago developed severe gastritis. I took him to the clinic ,without an appt and was quickly treated. It only took him a few days to get back to normal. 
The doctor is very understanding and takes her time. They've even developed a portal to keep track of your dog's medications, appts and vaccines. Great online tool! 
The clinic is very clean and organized!

I just could not ask for a better Vet.! My dog, which my husband and I rescued from the streets, not a dog pound, the streets, was in such bad conditions that she was almost dying. I found her at only 9 weeks of age (3 months). Dr. Lista warned my husband and I, that the condition of the puppy was so bad that the percentage of the puppy making it out of this was low, because she was severely infected with hook worms and at such young age this worms are deadly in the majority of cases. My husband and I decided to risk it and go for the treatment. It was not cheap but I couldn't let the poor puppy just die. Dr Lista was so loving towards the poor thing, like she truly cared for the well being of this animal. Long story short, after many visits to the Vet. and last minute "please help me" and many calls, my dog, April, survived! Dr. Lista and her team were always so helpful, state of the art Veterinary clinic, and most of all they did their job well and truthfully. If it wasn't for Dr. Lista my April wouldn't be here, and not only here but healthy! Although the journey for her recovery was not an easy or short one or cheap one lol, it was all worth it, and I'll do it again if I had to, and I'll pick Trail Animal Hospital all over again.. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A VETERINARIAN, LOOK NO MORE, IT JUST DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!!

Went today for the first time after a friends recommendation...I just got a French bulldog puppy (name: Lebron James) and took him for his first check up. Dr.V was outstanding! Automatically earned major points by wearing a Heat shirt! Signed up for their puppy insurance which I think it's worth every penny. Highly recommend!

Dania M.

Dr. Lista is the best! She's treated several mature dogs of my family's, each with numerous maladies. Two were euthanized when their time on this earth was up. They passed with dignity and sorrow, but without pain. Dr. Lista was always there when we needed her, and her knowledge and compassion was so comforting. I cannot recommend her highly enough. You can trust your loved ones to her caring hands and heart.

We took our basset hound Nahla to the vet based on the Google reviews and other reviews. This is by far the best veterinarian in the Miami area. Dr Martais very attentive, knowledgable, and listens to your issues and unlike other vets who just give pills, treats your dog with a whole body approach to help stop any issues. Highly recommend.

Paul Bonaventura

The quality of service at Trail Animal Hospital is fantastic and their customer service is unparalleled. The doctor and nurses all take a vested interest in the health and well-being of your pet. They all remember your pet and you by name. It's an extremely friendly place where you can be confident that your pet is in amazing hands.

Christine Alfaro

Amazing staff, great doctors, and extremely clean office.  I've been going to Trail for over 3 years and am beyond pleased with their services.  Even my dog loves them since she starts wagging her tail and darts out of the car as soon as I park in front of their office.  I highly recommend them.

Mary M

Good staff great doctor good prices.

Ernestine Morales

A great experience all around. We've been taking our four legged family to Dr. Lista for years. She and her staff have always treated them and us as members of their family-- which is what they are-- a family that serves our community of pets and pet lovers in the best way possible.

Nice they were friendly. Reminds me alot of vet ranch lol


We have been dealing with Dr. Lista and her personnel at Trail Animal Hospital for over five years and Dr. Smith before.  We find the doctors and the staff to be outstanding, they are all professional, animal lovers and empathetic to the individual situations facing each little guy/girl.  Our experience has always been  GREAT, we love Dr. Lista and her staff.

Have been taking my dog here for a few years now and the staff  has been very friendly and caring toward her and myself. I have no complaints and plan on taking my dog back whenever she needs to go.

Anthony Ferraresi

Dr. Lista and her staff are amazing.  Always friendly and ready to help in any way they can.  They truly care and it shows each and every visit.  Thank you for all you do!

Olga Camacho

Dr. Lista is a great vet, she is very attentive with my pets the times I have taken them there. When one of my dogs injured her leg/paw quite badly, she performed a surgery and did weekly checkups, my dog made a very good recovery (is now walking and running with the leg again) with the treatment provided by Dr. Lista. 
The staff is also very friendly and helpful, they also call the following day/s to see how your pet is doing.

Ana D

We have been going to Dr. Lista for years. Love her and all her staff. They truly care about your pet and it always feels like you receive a personal touch everytime you go which makes you feel like you are leaving your pet in good hands/family.

They take good care of my pupps

Josh Abbey

We have been seeing Dr. Lista for several years.  She is an incredible vet - great with both our cat and dog.  When our cat, sadly, passed away 2 years ago, she was very compassionate and kind to me and my children during the process.

We now have a large, VERY energetic labradoodle.  She and her staff are always very patient with him, in spite of him being a "difficult" patient.  When we have had emergency situations, they have always seen us immediately.

We love Dr. Lista and her staff and can't recommend them enough.

Cheryl Murillo

Hiram Alfonso

You can tell they really love the animals they care for.  Always professional and ready to help. 

Armando Garcia

I recently brought in a kitten that I had found who appeared to be very sick (and it turned out she was). I was short on money but desperately wanted to help this kitten.  The Veterinarian and the staff worked with me to be able to afford her much needed health care. 

Everyone there is very welcoming and provide a warm atmosphere for owners who sometimes are not in the best situations. 

I will definitely be bringing my kitten back here and highly recommend them to any pet owner!

Dr. C. Perry Smith is the best Vet. I ever met. I have worked with atleast 15 Vets in Miami & no one knows as much about Pets as Dr. Smith. I had the pleasure to work with him for 3 years & He never had a pet die on him just only one who came in critically & late & it's was out of his hands (German Shepard). He had puppies with parvo corona & he saved all of them. And all kinds of other situations including cancer ect.. he saved everything that came in. He is retired now & I will surely miss him & terrified about the care of my pets!!!!!

Love Always,
