Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve made this FAQ’s list to include questions that we get about pets as well as questions that we get about our animal hospital. Have a question you don’t see below? Give us a call.

Comprehensive examinations are recommended at least annually to check for health issues that may not be apparent to owners. During a comprehensive examination the veterinarian will examine your pet’s eyes, ears, skin and hair coat, listen to their heart, and discuss any concerns you may have.
Yes, mosquitos and fleas are both present year round across the United States, but especially in the Gulf Coast region where temperatures remain warm for much of the year. Heartworm incidence in this region is still very high making year round heartworm prevention paramount.
Switching a puppy or kitten to adult food too early can cause obesity and gastro-intestinal issues. We recommend switching to adult dog or cat food between 10-12 months.

While diet can be a component of a pet’s skin issues, an actual food allergy is unlikely.

Only about 10% of pets have real food allergies. The other 90% of itchy, uncomfortable pets are typically some sort of inhaled allergen just like us, or a flea allergy.

We welcome all breeds of cats and dogs as well as exotics such as Parrots or reptiles.

It is recommended to was your dog at least every 4-6 weeks. Unless they have an existing skin condition.

and follow the instructions on the voicemail.
