Flea and Tick Control

We offer a wide variety of flea and tick products to suit you and your pet's needs. Flea control is practiced year round in Florida and we have products to make it as simple as once a month.

Good flea control means preventative maintenance before a problem arises. Monthly topical or oral products along with good grooming habits and environmental control are the keys to success.

Tablets, drops, sprays, shampoos, collars and powders are some of the many choices you have to meet your flea control needs and help keep your pet parasite free and healthy.

We offer expert advice as to what products are best for you and how to properly use them.

 

 

Veterinary endoscopy procedure used for retrieving foreign objects.

 

Endoscopy / Otoscopy

Endoscopy procedures help aid in the retrieval of foreign bodies in the stomach and/or intestines. It can also be used in the exploration of the stomach and digestive tract for possible abnormalities.

Pets are anesthetized and a small probe is inserted into the esophagus which provides a camera view on screen as it travels into the stomach and intestine. Biopsies can also be performed and some foreign bodies grasped and retrieved.

Otoscopy procedures are used to completely flush clean ear canals due to chronic otitis. This allows home treatment to be successful after thoroughly cleaning the canal and medication can then be applied.

 

 

 Certified veterinary technician - Maryann- performs Dental cleaning.

Dental Prophylaxis

We offer full dental cleanings and, if needed, extractions. Since the majority of dental problems occur below the gum line, our technician begins by performing full-mouth digital dental x-rays to help the diagnosis and treatment of oral disease.

Ultrasonic scaling and polishing is performed by our certified technicians. Each tooth is examined with dental instruments by the veterinarian. Flouride treatment aids in the prevention of decay.

Occasionally some teeth are able to be saved by injecting a form of antibiotic gel into the oral socket. Unfortunately some have to be extracted. Referrals are offered for decisions on root canals and other specialty dental procedures.

In-House Laboratory

The use of pre-anesthetic blood work can aid in the early detection of underlying problems. Normal parameters allow for a safer anesthetic procedure.
