Pet Wellness Care

We place the health of your pet as our first concern.

Wellness Exams for Dogs and Cats in Key Largo, FL

Preventing tomorrow’s problems today is one of our core philosophies. Dogs and cats have a much higher metabolic rate than humans, aging 5-6 years for every one of ours. To keep up, we recommend seeing your pet here in Key Largo, FL at least once a year for their wellness exam. This gives us the opportunity to make sure your pet’s heart, lungs, and overall body condition are in the best possible shape at every life stage.

As an AAHA-accredited, Cat-Friendly Practice staffed with Fear Free Certified Professionals, we take steps to ensure that every wellness visit is overwhelmingly positive for our dog and cat patients.
