Local Medical Issues

There are many preventive measures you can take to prevent problems for your pet that are common to the local area. Mosquitoes are a huge concern due to the year-round warm weather here in south Florida. They carry heartworm disease, and can infect even inside pets if they are not protected on a monthly basis with heartworm prevention. The large amount of rain that occurs in south Florida is a contributor to intestinal parasites, which can be brought in by the dirt on your shoes. Again, monthly heartworm preventative can help protect your pet from the most common of these parasites. Monthly flea and tick prevention is also recommended to prevent infestation in the home and on your pet. Swallowing fleas can cause tapeworms in the intestinal tract, which if left untreated, could become a serious issue. Just as for people, allergies tend to be a problem in South Florida. Excessive biting and scratching, crying, hair loss and red ears can all be signs of allergies.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you.
