Comprehensive Medical and Surgical Services:
Examinations and Wellness Care
At Valrico Animal Clinic, we offer comprehensive examinations that help evaluate the overall health of your pet. Regular physical examinations can detect problems in their early stages, before they become serious illnesses requiring prolonged treatment. Preventative medicine is the easiest, least expensive and most important way to keep your pet healthy.
Along with your pets physical exam we offer tailored wellness lab profiles based on your pets age. Annual lab testing helps us have a more complete picture of your pets overall health. Our preventative programs can help us detect underlying conditions in a timely fashion, resulting in a wider choice of treatment options, better outcomes and longer lives.
Avian and Exotic Veterinary Care
Immunizations are a crucial part of your pet’s health care. Usually administered during an annual exam, we work with you to develop an individual vaccine protocol that best suits your pet’s needs.
Digital Radiography and In House Laboratory Testing
Hair loss and constant scratching can indicate fleas, food allergies or other more serious skin conditions. We provide specialized dermatological services to all of our patients including allergy testing and desensitization treatments.
Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet’s health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. Our veterinary staff regularly performs oral exams, cleanings and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive health care goals. Dental problems, if left untreated, can often lead to larger systemic problems in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver.
This unique form of identification is an easy, yet permanent way to bring your pet home quickly should he / she become lost. The microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades, and stays there for his / her entire life. This procedure is as easy and as painless as a vaccination.
Pets often show illness or anxiety through improper or changed behavior. Let our staff help you determine what is appropriate behavior and what you can do to change inappropriate behavior.
