Preventative medicine is important when our pets are young, but as our pets age, and become prone to certain disease processes, annual exams and blood work becomes even more critical.

Annual exams and blood work to check liver and kidney values, along with thyroid function have the potential to alert us to early changes that may give us valuable information about your pet’s health. We understand the changes your pet will have as they become older, and we also know the importance of keeping your pet healthy as they enter their golden years.

Health Certificates  Friendswood, TX

Health Certificates

If you want to travel internationally with your pet, you need to plan ahead. Since each country is different, you will have to contact the embassy or consulate where you are going to find out what you need to do.

Though every country has different requirements, most require a health certificate that is done by a USDA-accredited veterinarian. Luckily, we have a USDA-accredited veterinarian. If you are not a client, you need to make sure you bring your pets’ records in with you to the examination.

At the time of your pets’ examination, we will go over the forms that you need. There are times when we will have to run some tests to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for travel. We may also have to treat your pet prior to traveling.

You will always need a health certificate and proof of vaccination. You may also need a microchip and blood tests. Many countries require that your pet get treated for parasites prior to travel. You may also need certificates for the airplane ride.

Since each country is different and we can’t stay up to date will all of the changes in each one, it is important that you call ahead and know what you need. Then, we will make sure that your pet is all ready to go!

Exotic Pet Care  Friendswood, TX

Exotic Pet Care

​Exotic animals include reptiles, birds, small mammals (often grouped as pocket pets), and even some livestock such as the potbellied pig, goats, etc. Common health issues with these animals are most often related to husbandry issues or a failure in the animal’s care, feeding, and housing. Before adopting any exotic, it is very important to research the time commitment, diet, and cost of owning these beautiful and interesting creatures. It may surprise you that many of these creatures can become ill from simple needs such as specific water delivery systems (chameleons) or vitamin/mineral supplements. Once you have adopted this new pet, it’s best to bring it in for an exam. Here is a list of some other services that we offer to our exotic patients:

  • Spay/Neuter (with most, call for specifics)
  • Sexing
  • Lab work
  • Radiographs
  • Treatments
