Examinations

Wellness Exam

Wellness exams are a critical part of your pet’s overall health. Routine wellness exams should be performed every 6-12 months depending on your pet’s age and lifestyle.  Regular wellness screenings can often detect minor problems before they become more serious.

Sick Pet Exam

There can be many signs when your pet does not feel well.  Some are obvious such as vomiting, diarrhea, sneezing, etc.  Other signs can be subtle requiring a detailed physical exam.

New Puppy or Kitten Exam New pet exams are always fun, as everyone LOVES to see puppies and kittens.  They are still very valuable in detecting possible diseases or congenital defects.  It is important to start with regular thorough exams when they are young, so you have a basis to refer to as they grow.

Second-Opinion Consultations

Second opinions can be extremely valuable.  It is always okay to ask for or seek a second opinion.  Medicine is always changing and never plays by the rules.  Sometimes having a fresh set of eyes look over a case provides a new perspective.

Specialty Referrals

The Tampa Bay area is blessed to have many incredible specialists.  If specialty services are needed for your pet, we are happy to make referrals based on your individual pet’s needs. We can then work together to make sure all of your pet’s needs are met.
