Vaccinations have become commonplace for your pet today, as they can effectively prevent potentially serious diseases. Not only can regular vaccinations protect your pet’s health, they can also keep the human members of your family healthy as well some illnesses can be transferred to humans.
While annual vaccinations have been the general rule for some time, recent studies have shown that vaccinations may be effective for longer periods of time than originally thought. As vaccinations have become safer and better customized to each individual pet, it is becoming more common for veterinarians to recommend less frequent vaccinations that are tailored to your pet specific needs.
Flea and Heartworm Prevention
Keeping your pet protected monthly eliminates the many risks that come with external and internal parasites. Heartworm prevention is given monthly and prevents your dog from this deadly disease that invades the heart. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes and as we know, Florida has mosquitoes all year round. Keeping your pet on monthly prevention is the only way to insure your pet does not come in contact with this very common disease.
Products we offer for Heartworm prevention:
Trifexis - Canine
Tri-Heart - Canine
Flea prevention can be given monthly or every 12 weeks depending on the type, along with preventing those small pesky fleas you're also preventing secondary diseases. Fleas are known to cause itchiness in most pets, many times pets - especially cats - are very allergic and within weeks can cause hair loss and a secondary skin infection.

Patient safety is always our top priority, so you can be assured that your pet is monitored and cared for from the minute you drop him/her off at our hospital. Here are the steps we take to ensure your pet's safety during a surgical procedure:
We treat every patient as an individual. We do not schedule multiple surgeries at the same time because we perform each surgery individually and wait until the patient is 100% recovered before any other procedure is performed.
