General Medicine

At Rubio Pet Hospital we are able to diagnose and treat the vast majority of illnesses your pet might have. We provide in-house laboratory and pharmacy, digital radiography with radiologist consultation if needed, general surgery and allergy testing.

Dr Rubio has more than 19 years of clinical experience exclusively in canine and feline medicine.

Vaccinations

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.

Products we offer for Flea prevention:

Comfortis - Canine/Feline

Bravecto - Canine

Activyl - Canine

Cheristin - Feline

Capstar - Feline/Canine

Surgery Protocol

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.

  • "I was greatly impressed by the welcoming warmth of the entire staff at Rubio Pet Hospital. Alyssa, the Office Manager, showed me different affordable preventive plans available if I wanted to get a on a program to maintain my dog Herschel's health. Dr Rubio and his wife were kind, thorough and attentive to every detail. I highly recommend them to everyone who has a pet or is thinking about getting one too!"

  • "My Dog Foster's tail was caught in a vacuum cleaner and badly injured. I thought the tail would have to be amputated, but Dr. Rubio gently shaved away the hair, gave me medications, solutions to soak the tail and ointment - and within six days all the black tissue on Foster's tail had dried up and flaked off! The follow up visit brought delight to Dr. Rubio, as it did to me. Thank you, Dr. Rubio, for giving me the time, medications and careful instructions for tending to Foster's tail. I am so glad I came to you! Of course, I had a lot of folks praying for Foster's tail, so I give thanks to God, the Great Physician, as well!"

  • "Took my dog to a mobile shots veterinarian and each time my dog would go crazy. This last time, I was told my dog needed to be sedated and they recommended I take her to a veterinarian facility. I chose Rubio Pet Hospital.
    What a huge difference. The place is fresh and clean! My dog was not nearly as nervous as she was at the mobile site. The doctor and his assistant was so accommodating and made my dog somewhat feel at ease. Once we began the shots, I was able to hold and comfort her. What a humongous difference! It took less than ten minutes to get her vaccinated (including the vaccine into my dogs nose), and everything worked out great. Fantastic experience! You now have a customer - patient for life."
