At Animal Hospital of Padre Island, we truly believe that regular examinations are vital to your pet’s overall health. It allows our veterinarians to evaluate your pet’s overall well-being, while learning more about you and your pet(s).
With routine examinations, our veterinarians will thoroughly examine your pets. This will also ensure they stay up to date on vaccinations and other preventative care that is important for good health, such as heartworm prevention and regular deworming.
Our hope with routine examinations is that we can catch potential problems before they become serious ones.

Exotic Pet Care
We know that pets come in all shapes and sizes, so we are happy to treat exotic pets. In addition to cats and dogs, we also treat animals like birds, reptiles, and pocket pets like hamsters and guinea pigs.
Our team is highly trained and educated when it comes to caring for exotic pets, so you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands.
When we need to figure out what’s wrong with your pet, we routinely use x-rays to help identify the cause of the problem, rule out possible problems, or provide a list of possible causes. We may also use x-rays during a wellness exam to diagnose potential problems before they become serious.
Flea Prevention & Control
Fleas can cause problems for pets ranging from minor to life-threatening. Not only can these parasites cause severe itching, irritation, and allergies, but they can also transmit tapeworms and diseases. Make an appointment today and have your pet checked and/or treated for fleas.
There’s an easy way to keep your dog or cat safe, by administering monthly heartworm preventatives. Most heartworm medications also protect your pet against other parasites, such as roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, ear mites, fleas, and ticks. We can recommend the best regimen of prevention for your pet upon visiting.
Don’t panic if you find a tick on your dog or cat, even if your pet is on a preventative. Some preventatives kill ticks after they’ve come in contact with your pet. Do not hesitate to ask us any questions you might have.
