After working in private practice for four years in New Jersey, he moved to Tampa in 1991, a short time later, he joined Ehrlich animal hospital with Dr. Langbehn. Dr. Saleh enjoys treating dogs cats, avian, and exotic pets. Dr. Saleh always had an interest in medicine, but believed that being able to treat animals from the day they were born until the end of their life and be there for them the whole way was more rewarding. Dr. Saleh’s favorite thing about working at Ehrlich Animal Hospital is being part of a team of very dedicated and passionate people whose mission is to give animals the best possible quality of life. When Dr. Saleh isn’t working, he enjoys watersports, soccer, gardening, donating blood, and playing classical guitar. He is also certified in many things, like CPR, SCUBA, and disaster training. Dr. Saleh’s furry children include a yellow Labrador named Odessa who was rescued from a breeder. She has some nerve damage, which affects her eye. She is also a blood donor. He also has two beagles, Mia, who was abandoned at a dog park & Rooney who was tied to a tree and left in front of someone’s home. His most recent addition is Rosa. Dr. Saleh adopted Rosa from Curacao where she was born with cataracts. She had undergone surgery and has had one of her lenses replaced. She will require life-long eye medications, but she is happy, playful and was a great addition to the Saleh pack!
