Preventative care is essential to your pet’s overall health and happiness. Pets can experience significant health changes in as little as six months. For this reason, regular wellness exams are encouraged. Depending on age and health conditions, your companion will benefit from annual or semi-annual wellness exams to maintain health and prevent disease. This gives us more treatment options and a greater likelihood for treatment success. Not to mention the potential for lower treatment costs!

Pets cannot tell you what hurts. Without diagnostic testing, countless conditions may go undetected. South Kendall Animal Hospital utilizes a wide range of diagnostic services to most accurately diagnose your pet’s complete health. Highly trained Certified Veterinary Technicians work in the lab on a daily basis to quickly and accurately analyze and return test results. Faster diagnoses allows treatment to begin sooner! We commonly perform bloodwork, urinalysis, fecal exams, skin scrapings, and much more!

Pet Dental Services
Dental health is vital to overall health. Yet it is estimated that over 80% of dogs and 70% of cats develop dental disease by 3 years of age. To maintain not only a hygienic and healthy mouth, but prevent the spread of harmful oral bacteria to the rest of the body, we recommend a comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment (commonly referred to a "professional veterinary dental cleaning") once or twice a year.

Senior Pet Care
We want to protect the special bond you have formed with your companion over the years. As pets enter the golden years, their immune system weakens, making them more vulnerable to illness, disease, and parasites. To keep your senior pet happy and healthy, we strongly recommend semi-annual visits. This allows us to closely monitor health changes such as weight loss, high blood pressure, dental disease, cataracts, glaucoma, arthritis, cancer, and various other conditions, as well as prevent disease progression.
