I’m so disappointed if I could leave no stars I would I went here because my puppy was extremely ill he was only 10months and I found out he had an enlarged heart and he was suffering and the best thing would be to euthanize him so I went through with it and I was hysterical when I left I walked out to a packed lobby with a lot of people staring at me and she asked me if I wanted the paw print and I said yes and paid for it that was 11/29/17 today is 12/27/17 and she called me to let me know the crematory did not follow through and didn’t make the paw print this to me is the worse thing they could of done that’s all I had left of my dog I was depending on this to make my kids a collage and put it on their wall now what and all she could say is things happen and just refund me $21 that the paw print cost this is the worst experience ever I wouldn’t advise nobody to go there! They should be more on top of things like this it’s like cremating a person and losing their ashes.
Excellent Doctor!!!!! He really goes over the Top with your Pet!!!! I highly recommend him. Felix S.
I have been to a few vets all over Miami and this doctor by far is the best I have met. Extremly professional and explains everything beyond any doubt. Would highly recommend this doctor to any pet owner. I live a bit far and I wont change this doctor for anyone else.
I went in the first time and they sold me the puppy package with the spay. I bought the package , second visit the doctor didn't show up to the room. My puppy was taken to the back to get her vaccines I don't know if they gave her the vaccines. They gave her praziquantel injection for the intestinal worms. I believe this is for tapeworms. The vet asst came back to the room and I never got to see the doctor. I am not happy and I don't believe my puppy was vaccinated.
The offices are very clean and the staff are very helpful and attentive. The doctor also demonstrates a genuine interest in his career of choice, which is very rare these days. They have always provided a clear diagnosis and explained their findings in great detail. One of the added benefits that makes this such a wonderful Vet is the emergency service. The emergency number is always answered and if needed they will have staff on hand to assist with your emergency. Considering how much an animal ER visit is, this is greatly appreciated. Their prices have always been fair and within reason. I have and will continue to recommend this to all my friends and colleagues looking for a Vet.
Very caring and very reasonable.
Call us and we will answer any concern you may have!!!
I took my puppy here because she was throwing up and had diarrhea. Dr. Diaz was amazing in treating her. She was so caring and explained everything in great detail. After a few test she was able to find out that my puppy had hook worms.. Dr. Diaz and her staff were so caring and attentive. Now i have a super healthy puppy and i couldn't be happier.. And on top of that this place had amazing affordable prices since they are a low cost clinic. i will definitely be going back for anything my dog needs. p.s. My puppy absolutely loved there house cat Oreo. Such a friendly lovable cat. ^.^
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
