Immunization, Routine, & Wellness Care

Immunization, Routine & Wellness Care

We strive to prevent illness whenever possible. The time and effort invested in Wellness Programs has rewards for both pets and owners. Our Wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: Comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; vaccination program; spay or neuter package; and specialized blood tests for all life stages.

PetLife Animal Hospital offers core vaccines, regionally specific (for those patients who travel, i.e. Lyme Vaccine). We also offer titer testing for pet owners who choose not to annually vaccinate but rather first test for the protection still present from past vaccines.
Our Licensed Veterinarians will perform a comprehensive physical exam on your pet to assess overall health. This external examination can evaluate heart, lungs, body condition, eyes, ears and teeth. Manually examining the pets abdomen will identity any growths or other abnormalities. This info will help guide us to any other diagnostics that may be required to further assess your pets condition.
We request that each and every pet owner bring a sample of their pets feces to the appointment so that a fecal float and/or a fecal direct examination may be performed. These tests can determine if there are internal parasites, blood, or any other issue present. The presence can indicate these issues that can adversely affect the health and well being of your pet.
We, along with the AVMA, recommend that each and every pet is tested annually for the presence of heart worms. Here in South Florida our pets are specifically at risk, and a single mosquito bite can potentially result in heart worm infestation which can take the life of your precious pet. Once the annual testing is completed, and negative, you may then continue monthly heart worm prevention.
We understand that “Your Pet Is What It Eats” We at PetLife believe in healthy nutrition. There is no such thing as “The Perfect Food”. There is only what may be “perfect” for your pet. We take all of your pets needs into consideration when recommending a specific diet, specific supplements and specific treats. We carry a large assortment of grain free, holistic and natural pet foods that everyone can afford.

Complete Dental Care

Complete Dental Care

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth. We use state-of-the-art ultrasonic dental equipment to clean each tooth thoroughly-above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Keeping your pets teeth clean and free of disease is an important step in the overall health and longevity of your pet.

Regardless of how careful we are during the scaling/curettage phase of teeth cleaning, minor defects of the tooth surface occur. Polishing smoothes out the defects and removes plaque missed during previous steps. Pumice or polishing paste is used on a polishing cup for the procedure.
Flouride is placed on the clean teeth and allowed to remain for up to four minutes to give lasting protection and defense
If teeth are found to be loose, cracked, broken or infected, the Veterinarian may choose to extract them. Depending on the location of the tooth, how deeply the attachment and what needs to be done to extract, the cost depends on these factors and the amount of sutures and time needed to complete the extraction. It is healthier for the pet to lose the tooth/teeth than to retain teeth which are not healthy.
Removal of plaque and calculus from the root surface. The goal is to disorganize and lavage bacteria living under the gum line. This creates a healthier environment for healing and reattachment. The smoothing of roughened root surfaces by debriding diseased cementum and removing embedded calculus produces a clean smooth surface free of endotoxin. Root planing is performed with a curette used in overlapping strokes. Crosshatch planing creates a smooth surface while maintaining root anatomy.
We examine individual teeth for mobility, fractures, malocclusion, and periodontal disease.
